The Tragedy of the Visually Impaired in India
One such major issue which affects children in the economically weaker – underserved segments is the ignorance, lack of access to proper competent eye hospitals and clinics and, incorrect diagnosis unable to identify low vision vis-a-vis being blind with very tragic and disastrous consequences.
50% of the children enrolled in blind Schools in India suffer from low vision and not blindness and, their lives are blighted by relegating them to develop systems and initiatives meant for the blind. The result – low vision being a serious issue which receives no budgets, consideration or correctional treatment is ignored due to ignorance, imperfect diagnosis, and assessment tools; a mere 5 – 10% are able to access and improve their functionality. Ageing serves to increase the challenges relating to low vision.
Inclusion for the challenged is a pipe–dream and access is an experience that will dehumanize the most spirited of individuals being subjected to devious forms of abuse, deprivation, and neglect.
Reasons such as ignorance about the necessary treatment and therapies, financial constraints, attitudinal barriers towards spending money on children with disabilities and unfeelingly neglecting them, denial and or, inability to access services due to disabilities, inaccessible infrastructure and prejudices of community members precipitates the situation for such children and are the key concerns for India.

The need for support in the area of eye-care will always remain an understatement. There is a vast population unable to afford spectacles for which reason children are the worst sufferers and this inability compromises on their education and all future prospects. Whatever we may say in this regard remains an understatement
Anchal feels it is an absolute necessity to accommodate a demand for at least 25 spectacles per day to meet the deficiency in this single segment of eye-care.
As we all know, medicines necessary in eye care are beyond the reach of the common man and it is very difficult to meet this deficiency.
