CATARACT SURGERY IS ONE OF THE MOST COST-EFFECTIVe HEALTH INTERVENTIONS
The World Bank considers cataract surgery one of the most cost-effective health interventions – for good reason. With their sight restored, patients gain self-sufficiency. Many will return to work, earn more income over the course of a lifetime, send their children back to school, and live longer, healthier lives.
