Why the need for Vision screening in Schools ?

Vision problem affects 13.5 million children and almost quarter of adolescents overall 12-17% children are reported to have eye vision problems. Poor vision in children affects performance in school or at work and has definite negative influence on the future of the child. Myopic children have trouble reading the black board notes or digital character of the class room presentation material displayed on screening.

School screening for vision in children is very essential and need to be made mandatory. Perhaps teachers and parents can help children who may be struggling with few vision conditions like squinting narrowing of eyes, headache, turning of eyes inwards, outward blurred vision, holding books too close all these need vision screening.

School Screening program by Trinity Care Foundation
Children with blindness suffer long years of disability which severely impacts their overall development and restrains them from any meaningful participation in social and economic activities. Uncorrected Refractive Error (URE) is one of the major reasons for visual impairment among children, especially in the age group of 5-15 years, with Myopia leading the list of refractive errors.


Children usually don't complain of defective vision especially if only one eye is involved. They may not even be aware of their problem. They adjust to the poor eyesight by sitting near the blackboard, holding the book closer to their eyes, squeezing the eyes and even avoiding work requiring visual concentration. This evades early detection. Timely detection of these problems and their correction by spectacles can tremendously improve the child's potential during his formative years. Visual impairment is an avoidable burden in the life of a child, his family and the society. Periodic screening of all children helps in early identification of visual defects and correction of REs, by prescription/use of corrective spectacles.
 In India it is estimated that 2-3 % of school children in rural areas have refractive error. In the urban areas the proportion is even higher. One study shows that 5.1% of children in schools had visual acuity of <6/12 in the better eye.

World Health Day 2017 - Depression: Let's talk !!!

The World Health Day this year focuses on ‘depression’. 

Worried about the future? Preventing depression during your teens and twenties..


Adolescence and young adulthood present many opportunities – for meeting new people, visiting new places and finding a direction in life. These years can also be a time of stress. If you are feeling overwhelmed rather than excited by these challenges, read on..



What you should know.

  • Depression is an illness characterized by persistent sadness and a loss of interest in activities that you normally enjoy, accompanied by an inability to carry out daily activities, for at least two weeks.
  • In addition, people with depression normally have several of the following: a loss of energy; a change in appetite; sleeping more or less; anxiety; reduced concentration; indecisiveness; restlessness; feelings of worthlessness, guilt, or hopelessness; and thoughts of self-harm or suicide.
  • Much can be done to prevent and treat depression.

What you can do if you are feeling down, or think you may be depressed

  • Talk to someone you trust about your feelings.
  • Seek professional help. Your local health-care worker or doctor is a good place to start.
  • Stay connected. Keep in contact with family and friends.
  • Exercise regularly, even if it’s just a short walk.
  • Stick to regular eating and sleeping habits.
  • Avoid or restrict alcohol intake and refrain from using illicit drugs; they can worsen depression.
  • Continue doing things you have always enjoyed, even when you don’t feel like it.
  • Be aware of persistent negative thoughts and self-criticism and try to replace them with positive thoughts. Congratulate yourself on your achievements.
Remember: There is a lot that you can do to keep mentally strong. If you feel that you may be heading for depression, talk to someone you trust or seek professional help.

Ensure eye care for all


WHO South-East Asia has 140 million visually impaired people. The Region has an estimated 12 million blind people, 8 million of them in India. More than 50% of all blindness is caused by cataract which accounts for 33% of visual impairment. Uncorrected refractive errors are responsible for 43% of the visual impairment in the Region. About 65% of the visually impaired people are 50 –year old and above.



These statistics should be viewed against the fact that 80% of visual impairment is avoidable. And that the blindness prevention strategies and restoration of sight are among the most cost-effective interventions in health care.

To reduce avoidable blindness and visual impairment, we must ensure universal access to comprehensive eye care services. There is a need to review and reinforce existing measures so that nobody suffers visual impairment and those with unavoidable vision loss can still achieve their full potential. World Sight Day on 8 October will focus on ‘eye care for all’.



The WHO Global Action Plan (GAP) for the Prevention of Avoidable Blindness and Visual Impairment 2014-2019, emphasises on improving eye health for everyone and reducing the prevalence of avoidable blindness and visual impairment by 25% by the year 2019.

Implementing simple measures such as eye care services in schools can help detect and correct refractive errors in children. And quality surgical procedures can help cataract patients get back to normal lifestyle very quickly.



The World Sight Day is an opportunity to raise public awareness against blindness and visual impairment, and advocate for designating more resources for national blindness prevention programmes. Together we can make VISION 2020, the global initiative for the elimination of avoidable blindness, a reality.
