About Yaima College Of Optometry
There are significant challenges for eye health care with ever increasing avoidable blindness and visual impairment. These mainly include insufficient number of competent healthcare professionals at the primary as well as at tertiary levels, non-rationalization of available resources and the inability to afford treatment. India currently has around 12 millions blind people against 39 millions globally – which makes India home to one third of the world’s blind population. Out of this population 80% of blindness can be prevented if better eye care services could be provided. This trend holds true for every part of the country including the Northeastern side where the geographical terrain is different from rest of the country too.
