    New advances in ophthalmology care and treatment

    According to statistics from the Ministry of Health, as of October 2023, about two million people in Vietnam were experiencing blindness. The main causes include cataracts (66%), fundus disease, glaucoma, and refractive error. Meanwhile, with the rising popularity of information technology, the eyes are exposed to electronic devices, or affected by sunlight and environmental pollution, causing eye diseases to increase and rejuvenate. Notably, refractive errors (nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism) are increasingly common among adolescents, with an incidence of between 15-20% in rural students and 30-40% in cities.
