This region is home to 26% of world population; there is a disproportionate amount of blindness (30.6%) and visual impairment (36%).This is a first of its kind book that discusses common conditions of visual impairment and blindness in the South-East Asia region. In addition, the book documents the current eye care industry in the region and the contribution of all eye health INGOs in eye care program planning and service delivery for many decades.
