Reducing an entirely curable form of blindness: Cataract

Nigerian National Blindness and Visual Impairment Survey conducted in 2007 suggest that two out of every three Nigerians are blind. Blindness does not only hinder quality of life of the person but impact socio - economic condition of family, community and the Nation. According to experts, “If priority attention is not given, the number of blind and severely visually impaired adults in Nigeria will increase by greater than 40 per cent over the next decade.”

TCF’s Eye Care program focuses on reducing the number of blind. TCF has a track record of providing high quality Eye Care to people irrespective of their socio – economic conditions. The TCF Eye Hospitals are the only reliable and cost free option for the disadvantaged and remote Nigerian population. The Eye Surgeons chosen by TCF are highly motivated, committed and experienced individuals from India. There are several eye centres are managed and run by TCF in Nigeria.
