Online PR News – 27-March-2015 – New Delhi – Eyes are the window of the soul. Because of the eyes, you are able to see this beautiful, colorful world. That is why it is essential to take good care of them, as without it, life can be very dull. In spite of meticulously caring of them, it is still possible that you can experience eye illnesses. There are many illnesses; however the most awful is sightlessness. But, in today's generation, there’s no need to be worried, as there have been many medical as well as surgical interventions just to save your vision.

Cataract is the most common illness of the eyes that has an effect on the lens, resulting in blurring of the vision to a certain extent. It is usually caused by getting old as well as genetic factor. The progress of the medical illness is usually slow; but, an injury might cause the fast progress of the cataract.

As far as cataract is concerned, medicines do not help in the restoration of the vision, which is why surgical means are preferred. It is also a fact that a cataract operation is very costly.

In the last thirty years, HelpAge India, a leading charity platform in India, has supported almost 850,000 operations on poor and needy elderly by associating with almost 400 organizations (eye hospitals, trusts, NGOs).Reliable and competent eye hospitals as well as organizations working for eye care are carefully chosen for performing the surgeries with HelpAge India’s support.

Each eye surgery is done in base hospitals only and not in temporary camps.

Also, the NGO is always looking for support from people. So, if you wish to help, you can either volunteer or sponsor a camp or a cataract surgery and make a difference.
