As one of the leading causes of vision loss, Cataract has caused partial or complete vision impairment to millions of people worldwide. While cataracts are commonly associated with older age, they can also occur in younger individuals due to regional or genetic factors. In many countries, financial constraints prevent patients from accessing the necessary treatment.

35,135 people examined.

In 2023, IHH has conducted 7,427 cataract surgeries in Pakistan, Syria, India, Nigeria, and Mali, enabling patients to regain their vision. Aside from surgeries, we also conducted eye examinations to 35,135 individuals as part of preventative measures against the disease. Furthermore, a comprehensive campaign was carried out, reaching 66,100 people through field screenings to facilitate early diagnosis of eye diseases.
