Eye care is also important when it comes to maintaining health. A major part of Indian population lives in rural areas. Most of the people belonging to this section of the society are affected by poor vision or blindness. Several factors, including the lack of awareness among people, their inability to afford eye check-ups, and the low ratio of ophthalmologists to patients in rural areas, govern this situation.

The problem is big and so is the concern of Lions. The organization has been relentlessly working on its eye care initiative, SightFirst, for over 100 years. This program aims to identify and eradicate the root cause of blindness. It has helped spread awareness among under-privileged people of their sight related problems. Lions across the globe are also actively engaged with hospitals and provide them support to examine and treat people with eye disorders.

There are currently about 15 million blind people in India. Fortunately for the nation, 80% of these are reversible. The aim is to help those 80% of the people regain their eyesight. It is the accessibility to facilities and resources, rather than availability that is hindering the country’s fight against eye diseases.

Diabetes is a growing health challenge that needs a solution right away. It also causes an eye related problem called diabetic retinopathy to those affected. It is responsible for over 5 million deaths happening globally. According to the World Health Organization, this lethal disease is believed to claim 642 million lives by 2040.

India is home to 70 million diabetics. These alarming numbers have inspired Lions to rise to the occasion and devise a roadmap to a successful fight against this disease. The organisation's partnership with Sankara Netralaya, India has an army of 30 doctors to train and manage diabetic retinopathy. Various Lions Clubs in the country also conduct camps to generate awareness about the same disorder. These camps also provide an opportunity to attendees to meet counselors.

Stride events, screening and treatment programs, and community recreational programs have been instrumental in this fight. Some of the organizations Lions work with are: The World Health Organization, Diabetes Education and Camping Association and International Diabetes Federation (IDF) .

The organization also schedules annual yearly events to commemorate the World Diabetes Day on November 14.

These endeavors help familiarize masses with the severity of Diabetes and the measures to control it. Along with adults and age-old people, children are also encouraged for check-ups to ensure their way towards a healthy future.

India is home to 50% of Measles and Rubella patients in the world

                       

Lions are committed to making this a statistic of the past by 2018

Lions are committed to making this a statistic of the past by 2018

Measles and Rubella are fast becoming the most severe ailments among children..They mar the body’s immunity leading to fatal conditions such as brain damage and leukaemia.. Surprisingly, 50% of these cases are found in India.

Lions always remain at the forefront of formulating strategies to ensure the development of a healthy society. The organisation stands firm with this commitment. It has been instrumental in the success of the nationwide Measles-Rubella (MR) Vaccination Campaign, initiated by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. . Millions of children are now clear of the deadly diseases. But, we recognise that a lot of work still needs to be done in India. Lions have also embarked on a mission to curb this menace with other significant measures, including social advocacy. Members from local Lions Clubs have been holding sessions with school administrators and parents in order to educate them with the dire need of vaccinating children.

The aim is to prevent deaths occurring due to Measles and Rubella by boosting susceptibility of children to them.
