Indian American Ophthalmologist Comes Calling to Offer Expertise to Prevent Avoidable Childhood Blindness

By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 28th Dec:- Dr. VK Raju, an eminent ophthalmologist based in Morgantown, West Virginia, USA held a meeting with Chandigarh Ophthalmological Society here on December 28  to discuss ways and means to prevent avoidable blindness among Children in the States of Punjab and Haryana,
The President of Chandigarh Ophthalmological Society Dr. Suresh Kumar Gupta in his welcome address to Dr. VK Raju described him as a crusader for prevention of childhood blindness who has for forty years relentlessly worked across the world, particularly in India and saved thousands from going blind.
Dr. Gupta briefly described the enormous work Dr. VK Raju has done. Dr. VK Raju began the work of the Eye Foundation of America (EFA) in 1977 by offering eye camps. The West Virginia Ophthalmology Foundation was subsequently created in 1982 and became the EFA in 1992. The realization of vision Dr. Raju, the EFA, has a reach that currently extends to 30 plus developing countries and the USA. The EFA has served approximately 3 million patients and performed 300,000 plus vision-saving surgeries, with 30,000 plus surgeries performed on children alone.
Dr. VK Raju received standing ovation from around 60 members of Society present. Dr. Gupta offered the Society’s cooperation and partnership in any project that Dr. VK Raju had in mind.
Dr. VK Raju gave a presentation on childhood blindness and dwelt on the work the Eye Foundation of America had done in the last forty years. He spoke feelingly about the tragedy of childhood blindness. Combating childhood is my passion. It is a small world and it is getting smaller and smaller. Our Foundation- the Eye Foundation of America works in over 25 countries to combat childhood blindness.
Dr. VK Raju said that since its inception, the EFA has facilitated 600 plus physician exchanges and trained 200 plus ophthalmologists, equipping these medical practitioners with the tools to join the global fight against blindness. The EFA not only trains medical practitioners to join the global fight against blindness through exchange programs, but also provides workshops and training opportunities for medical students and physicians. His charisma and vision inspire the EFA trainees return to their native countries to prevent and/or alleviate blindness in the field. For example, India and Ghana are actively engaged in avoidable blindness elimination projects with cooperation from their governments. In 2016 in India, 4,889 vision and 374 retinopathy of prematurity screenings were conducted, 779 eyeglasses were distributed, and 162 pediatric surgeries were performed. In Ghana in 2016, the Avoidable Blindness Elimination Project and the World Sight Day Kids Funfair screened 9,763 people, including 7,453 children, and detected ophthalmologic diseases in more than 1,000 individuals who consequently received treatment, which included 157 surgeries. More than 20,000 children received vision screenings in Ghana schools, eyeglasses and follow-up care were provided when necessary.
The EFA mission is to eliminate avoidable blindness under the guiding principles of service, teaching, and research. This is accomplished through eye camps and masonry hospitals in developing countries, training of medical personnel to serve the needy, and educating the population at large on preventative eye care and healthy lifestyle choices. Dr. VK Raju quotes his mentor in London as saying there are 3 solutions for any problem. The first is education, the second is education, and the third is education. With this education, patients are empowered to take charge of their lives and their own health and prevent further deleterious consequences of their poor lifestyle choices, while sharing this knowledge with their friends and families.
When education and preventative measures are insufficient, medical and surgical interventions are performed. With the aim of permanently providing world-class state-of-the art services to populations with poor access to health care, the EFA helped to build 2 hospitals in rural India, namely the Srikiran Eye Institute and the Goutami Eye Institute. The Goutami Institute has a wing dedicated to exclusively to children, and the EFA has future plans to build a service and research eye hospital in India where no child will be denied treatment and children from around the world can come to receive services. Dr. Raju and the EFA are also committed to finding new cures for age-old eye disease in children.
For long we at the Eye Foundation of America studied childhood blindness in Punjab and Haryana. We found the two states and the neighboring Himachal have a high incidence of childhood blindness. Th already alarming figures are expected to double by 2015. Obviously, these States need attention with regard to providing facilities and services to prevent blindness among children.
Dr. VK Raju appealed to the members of Chandigarh Ophthalmological Society to extend a hand of cooperation to the Eye Foundation of America to combat the serious situation of childhood blindness in the region.
Thanking Dr. Gupta and the Chandigarh Ophthalmological Society. Dr. VK Raju said that he was overwhelmed by the concern the medical fraternity felt on the issue and appreciated the members for their offer of cooperation in his projects.
Dr, VK Raju also thanked the veteran journalist Prabhjot Singh, Vineet Joshi and Devinder Sharma for making his meeting possible with the Chandīgarh Ophthalmological Society and the media.
He said that he will be happy to meet with Punjab, Haryana and Himachal State government officials to work with them on the project.
