Cataracts Fact Sheet

Cataract surgery is one of CBM’s focus areas. In rural areas where hospitals are rare, CBM ensures the poorest people can still have access to affordable and adequate health care by providing mobile outreach services or arranging transport to the nearest hospital. Since cataract surgery was introduced in 1966, CBM International has performed more than 12 million cataract operations worldwide. With your support we can perform around 600,000 operations annually and help people who are blind or vision impaired be full and active members of their communities.
