Tech that could save millions of babies from going blind
Nearly 100,000 premature babies in India suffer from blindness which can actually be cured if treated within 30 days of birth.
The leading cause of blindness is Retinopathy of prematurity, ROP. 10% of babies who get this disease turn blind when they are just two months old.
ROP can be treated but there are very few specialists in India to treat this.
Forus Health Company, a Bengaluru-based company has developed a screening camera that could save 3.5 million babies from going blind by screening and treating the condition.
It can also treat people in remote areas.
The camera is highly reliable and easy to operate.
