Globally, at least 2.2 billion people have a vision impairment or blindness, of whom at least 1 billion have a vision impairment that could have been prevented or has yet to be addressed.

One of the leading causes of this astounding number is late detection and expensive nature of treatments and surgeries. Additionally, it requires a unique set of skills to perform eye surgery on a child and it is also more expensive than it is for adults.
