Dr Ladi speaking to an audience on cataract being the leading cause of blindness
CATARACT stands as the leading cause of Blindness worldwide, with more than 80% of blind individuals in India suffering from this condition. Shockingly, an estimated 38 lakh people in India become blind each year due to cataracts, contributing to the alarming figure of 1 crore 20 lakhs blind individuals in the country.
To address this critical issue, Dr. Jeevan Ladi, Director of Dada Laser Eye Institute and Inventor of the World’s Fastest & Safest Vision Correction Technique – VOZ & SAFE, will be spearheading a campaign to prevent blindness caused by cataracts starting from June 1st, 2023. DLEI aims to conduct free cataract testing for 10,000 citizens, valued at Rs. 1,000/- per test, totaling a substantial contribution of 1 crore rupees. This initiative is expected to make a significant impact in tackling the nationwide challenge of avoidable blindness caused by cataracts.
In addition to the free eye check-up camp, Dada Laser Eye Institute has organized a “CATARACT-FREE PUNE Walkathon” on Sunday, June 4th, 2023. The Walkathon will commence at 7.30 am at Sadhu Vaswani statue on Sadhu Vaswani road and will end at DADA LASER EYE INSTITUTE situated at Gulmohar Apartment, East Street, Camp, Pune 411001.

“Walk To Avoid Cataract Blindness” – the theme of the CATARACT-FREE PUNE Walkathon – encapsulates the collective effort required to prevent cataract-related blindness and promote vision health in our community.
“I have introduced this campaign as an opportunity to extend a helping hand to those in need, to provide them with the gift of sight and to empower them to live a life of clarity and independence. And I firmly believe that no one should suffer from avoidable blindness, especially when cataract surgery can make a profound difference. Through this campaign, we aim to raise awareness about cataracts, promote early detection, and ensure that no one is left behind in the fight against cataract-related blindness,” Dr. Jeevan Ladi, Founder of DLEI.
The Cataract Awareness Campaign undertaken by Dada Laser Eye Institute serves as a wake up call to all citizens to take proactive measures against cataract-related blindness. Together, we can make a difference and create a Cataract-free City.
