Overview

Bangladesh achieved impressive results in reducing poverty since the 1990s while increasing life expectancy, literacy rates and food production due to sustained economic growth. Bangladesh was also one of the first countries that has introduced a national program for prevention of blindness in the 1980s. Despite these high-level efforts, at least 6 million people, including 1.3 million children, suffer from refractive errors preventing them from effectively participating in day-to-day activities.

Currently, there are only 1,100 ophthalmologists in the country, nearly exclusively in the urban areas, hence making the eye care services virtually non-existing in rural communities, or the large refugee Rohingya community.
