Goa walk to create awareness about problems of the blind
India Vision Institute (IVI) of Chennai organised a 'Walk in the Dark' in Panaji in Goa recently.
The event included visually impaired children from the National Association of the Blind (NAB) along with sighted opinion makers and high-level officials walking blindfolded along the way.
The idea was to create awareness among the public about the problems faced by the visually impaired people.
Myopia is a major issue with children and senior citizens from village areas as they don't have access to eye-services and live with visual impairment.
So, India Vision Institute plans to hold free medical checkups for 2,000 schoolchildren next month.
In the medical camps, free spectacles will be given to children from poor families having visual problems.
