India Maybe At the Brink of a Dry Eye Disease Epidemic

India Maybe At the Brink of a Dry Eye Disease Epidemic

This is the first ever event where a very large scale hospital-based study was done in India. The process had 14.5 lakh patients involved in it had dry eye disease. It is shocking to see my many experts that the urban area is more affected than the rural areas that are over 8,700 cases. Factors such as the growth of the middle class in India along with the ageing population are causing a rise in dry eye disease epidemic. The chronic nature of the disease is said to spread so fast that by the year 2030 around 40% of the population in the urban lands of India will see its effect. It is all because of the progressive nature of the disease.

The corneal damage is the risk factor here and the future may be dark for those who have it because it may lead to visual impairment and blindness. That is why doctors advise all patients and people who show the symptoms to diagnose it or treat it at an early age. It is important to realize that the disease is one of those diseases that is underdiagnosed in India, making it a bigger threat than ever. Healthcare industry is on the move against this disease and many have started developing the tech to conquer it. Let’s see how things turn out in the future.
