Rate this:
Perhaps more disturbing than the global statistics concerning blindness-for example, one child goes blind every minute-is the fact that much of it is easily preventable. This program shows how scientific and technological advances offer new hope for millions suffering from vision loss. Experts such as ophthalmologists David Yorston and Bruce Allan of London's renowned Moorfields Eye Hospital discuss cataracts, trachoma, and vitamin A deficiency, the leading causes of blindness worldwide. Film footage and computer animations of various conditions are shown, along with close-up coverage of the newest generation of laser surgery procedures.
