Visual impairment has an impact on people in every part of their lives. Many organisations (WHO, IAPB, NGO’s, etc.) have launched a campaign called “Vision 2020: The Right to Sight” to eliminate preventable blindness by 2020. Quality, reliability, and efficiency of eye care facilities are three major elements that may help to prevent vision loss worldwide. Obstacles to the use of eye-care services in India include poor practitioner-to-patient ratios, a paucity of eye-care workers, insufficient infrastructure, a lack of state support, and a lack of medical, specialist, or training programmes. Poor road infrastructure, transit facilities, and distances from isolated villages, all of which influence surgery and eye care systems, are significant barriers to such programmes for visually impaired people in rural places. The use of healthy, inexpensive, and efficient eye care facilities is influenced by factors such as age, education, preferences, and psychosocial difficulties. The advancement of eye therapy and comprehension of suitable eye care resources must be intense, and the repercussions of insufficient eye care must be recognised, if avoidable blindness is to be avoided. To provide proper education and lessen global eyesight and blindness, rural people’ beliefs and cultural attributes must be examined. Educating people about the importance and use of health care resources should begin at a young age, according to eye care providers. In this post, we’ll talk about the present condition of eyecare services, as well as the obstacles that eye doctors confront when it comes to treating and managing eye problems. Using eye care services comes with a number of challenges, which administrators and providers must be aware of.
