 National Programme for Control of Blindness was
  launched in the year 1976 as a 100% Centrally Sponsored
  scheme with the goal to reduce the prevalence of
  blindness from 1.4% to 0.3%.



 Target for the 10th Plan is to reduce prevalence of
  blindness to 0.8% by 2007 prevalence of Blindness is 1%
  (2006-07 Survey).
 The plan of action and activities of ‘National
  Programme for Control of Blindness (NPCB) in India
 can be described under three headings:

 Basic programme components,
 Programme organization
 Strategic plan for ‘Vision 2020: Right to Sight’ in India.
 The basic components of NPCB since its inception
  includes the following :



 Extension of eye care services.
 Establishment of permanent infrastructure.
 Intensification of eye health education
 It is being done through the state and district mobile
  units by adopting an ‘eye camp approach’ and by
  enlisting the participation of voluntary organisations.
  The following facilities are being provided in remote
  areas:
 1. Medical and surgical treatment for the prevention
  and control of common eye diseases.
  Eye camp approach is of great help in reducing the
  backlog of cataract by mass surgeries.
  Recent emphasis is on reach-in-approach.

 2. Detection and correction of refractive errors.
 3. Thorough ocular examination including vision of
 school children for early detection of eye diseases and
 promoting ocular health

 4. Rehabilitation training of visually handicapped.


 5. General survey for prevalence of various eye
  diseases
 The ultimate goal of NPCB is to establish permanent
 infrastructure to provide eye care services.

  It is being done in three-tier system i.e.,
   peripheral,
         intermediate and
              central level.
 A wide range of eye conditions can be
 treated/prevented at the grass root level by locally-
 trained primary health workers.

 Peripheral sector for primary eye care at PHC and
  subcentre levels is being strengthened by:
 Providing necessary equipment,
 Posting a paramedical ophthalmic assistant, and
  Organising refresher courses for doctors and other
  staff of PHC on prevention of blindness.
 Secondary eye care involves
     Definitive management of common blinding
                  conditions such as
                     cataract,
                       glaucoma,
                        trichiasis,
                     entropion and
                    ocular trauma.
 Tertiary eye care services include the sophisticated eye care
  such as

                    retinal detachment surgery,
 laser treatment for various retinal and other ocular disorders,
                     corneal grafting and
other complex forms of management not available in
  secondary eye care centres.
 An apex National Institute of Ophthalmology has
 been established at Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for
 Ophthalmic Sciences, New Delhi.

 This institute has been converted into a centre of
 excellence to provide overall leadership, supervision
 and guidance in technical matters to all services and
 technical institutions under the programme.
 Intensification of eye health education is being done
 through

 mass communication media (television talks, radio
  talks, films, seminars and books),
 School teachers, social workers, community leaders,
 Mobile ophthalmic units, and existing medical and
  paramedical staff.

 Main stress is laid on care and hygiene of eyes and
 prevention of avoidable diseases.
 1. Central level
 ‘National Programme Management Cell’ located in the
   office of Director General Health Services (DGHS),
                  Department of Health,
                Government of India (GOI).

 To oversee the implementation of the programme
  three national bodies have been constituted as below:
 National Blindness Control Board, chaired by
  Secretary Health to GOI.
 National Programme Co-ordination Committee,
  chaired by Additional Secretary to GOI.
 National Technical Advisor Committee, headed by
  Director General Health Services, GOI.
 l. Procurement of goods (major equipments, bulk
  consumables, vehicles, etc.)

 District blindness control society
 The concept of ‘District Blindness Control Society
 (DBCS)’ has been introduced, with the

 primary purpose to plan, implement and monitor the
 blindness control activities comprehensively at the
 district level under overall control and guidance of the
 ‘NPCB'.
 achieve the maximum reduction in avoidable
 blindness in the district through optimal utilisation of
 available resources in the district
 1. To make control of blindness a part of the
 Government’s policy of designating the district
 as the unit for implementing various development
 programmes.

 2. To simplify administrative and financial procedures.

 Prevalence of childhood blindness in India 0.8/1000
  children
 Common causes are
                 vitamin A deficiency,
                         measles,
                     conjunctivitis,
                ophthalmia neonatorum,
                       injuries,
                 congenital cataract,
       retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), and
                 childhood glaucoma.
 Refractive errors are the commonest cause
 Is to eliminate avoidable causes of childhoodblindness
  by the year 2020.
 Strategies and activities


 1. Detection of eye disorders.
         At the time of primary immunization,
                   At school entry, and
     Periodic check up every 3 years for normal and
            every year for those with defects.
 Prevention of xerophthalmia


 Prevention and early treatment of trachoma by active
    intervention

   Refractive errors to be corrected at primary eye care
    centres.

   Childhood glaucomas to be treated promptly.

   Harmful traditional practics need to be avoided.

   Prevention of ROP
 3. Curable childhood blindness due to
   cataract,ROP, corneal opacity and other causes to be
  taken care of by the experts at secondary and tertiary
 level eye care services.

 Targets include:


 Establishment of Paediatric Ophthalmology Units.


 Establishment of refraction services and lowvision
 centers
 Targets.
1. Refraction services to be available in all primary
   health centres by 2010.
2. Availability of low-cost,good quality spectacles for
   children to be insured.
3. Low vision service centres are to be established at
   150 tertiary level eye care institutions.
 As per the ‘National Survey on Blindness’ (1999-2001,
  Govt. of India Report 2002)9 glaucoma is responsible
  for 5.8% cases of blindness in 50+ population.



 Failure of early detection of the disease poses a
  management problem towards controlling
  glaucomatous blindness.
 Following measures are recommended for opportunistic
 glaucoma screening (case detection)

 Opportunisitic screening at eye care institutions
 should be done in all persons above the age of 35 years,
 those with diabetes mellitus, and those with family
 history of glaucoma.

 Community based referral by multi-purpose workers
 of all persons with dimunition of vision, coloured haloes,
 rapid change of glasses, ocular pain and family history of
 glaucoma.

 Opportunistic screening at eye camps in all patients
 above the age of 35 years.
Following recommendations are made:

 Awareness generation by health workers.


 All known diabetics to be examined and referred to
 Eye Surgeon by the Ophthalmic Assistant.

 Confirmation by fundus fluorescein angiography
 (FFA) and laser treatment of diabetic retinopathy at
 tertiary level.
 The major causes of this blindness are corneal ulcers
 due to infections, trachoma, ocular injuries and
 keratomalacia caused by nutritional deficiencies.

 Objectives are:
 To reduce prevalence of preventable and curable
  corneal blindness.
 To identify the infants at risk in cooperation with RCH
  programme.
 Includes all categories of paramedics who work full
  time in eye care.
 1. Hospital-based MLOP. These include etc.
 2. Community-based MLOP include those with
  outreach/
 field functions such as
Mid-Level Ophthalmic Personnel (MLOP).
