Quiz on Preventable vision loss

Blindness can be caused by various factors. Some types of blindness cannot be prevented. Many types of vision loss however can be prevented, if diagnosed early or if preventive measures are taken.

Nutritious food, basic hygiene and simple safeguards can reduce the risk of blindness in normal people.
