Eye care for all – WSD 2015

World Sight Day 2015 will be on 8 October 2015.

Africa Eye Foundation is working with IAPB and many other partners to ensure that this year’s World Sight Day call to action (Eye Care for All) is a reality, not only in Cameroon but in other countries in Central Africa.

Uncorrected refractive error, cataract and glaucoma remain the main causes of visual impairment and blindness in Cameroon.

However, the rapid rise in the number of diabetics in Cameroon means that urgent action needs to be taken to also address diabetic retinopathy, which, in developed economies, has long been known to be the main cause of blindness among people of working age.
