Vision loss and impairment is neither inevitable nor associated with growing older.  While 2.2 billion people around the world today have a vision impairment, at least 50% could have been prevented.

 

This is an unprecedented time in history with a rapidly ageing global population and a significant increase in the prevalence of diabetes.  As such, integrated people-centred care provides a continuum of health interventions and has the potential to address the full spectrum of eye conditions, according to the needs of the individual throughout their life course.

 

With the backdrop of the WHO World Report on Vision, the Presidential Symposium on Vision Health seeks to convey new knowledge on coordinated care and treatment, emerging policy issues on biosimilars in ophthalmology, the challenging consequences of end-organ damage, and the role of civil society in improved care outcomes from both a vision and functional perspective.
