For past 6 years NIO Vision Marathon has been an attempt to raise awareness about Avoidable Blindness. Dr. Aditya Kelkar and Dr. Jai Kelkar of the National Institute of Ophthalmology have been taking the lead in spreading awareness and guiding the NIO Vision Marathon Team to spread awareness about Avoidable Blindness.Avoidable blindness can be treated/ prevented by known, cost-effective means, yet nearly 75% of the world’s blind are blind due to Avoidable Blindness. This is mostly because this category of blindness is not given proper attention and many people have not been made aware of this type of blindness yet. Because of this, NIO Vision Marathon is trying to spread awareness about the main causes of avoidable blindness, in order to have the greatest possible impact on vision loss worldwide
