About ten million Bangladeshis are suffering from eye vision problem now. Most of them can regain clear vision with a very little eye medical treatment under ophthalmologists (eye specialists). A portion can lead usual life having regular advice of ophthalmologists. A portion can regain normal vision having a little treatment of Eye Specialists. As number and location of Eye Care Centers are very limited in relation to number of patients' throughout the country most of the patients cannot get eye care medical service from ophthalmologists. The eye care centers are to be made well equipped and new eye care centers are to be established in every regions of the country.
Owing to very limited number of ophthalmologists about ten million patients have been suffering eye vision problem and leading vision impaired life. It is not desirable in current age in any independent country. In the last 48 years Bangladesh has set up a few medical colleges, an Ophthalmology Institute and a Medical University to expand medical education in the country. There is an institution of government in Dhaka city to impart ophthalmology from where a handful of eye specialists are coming out every year. Their number is like drops of water in a mighty river. Quality of ophthalmology medicare treatment in the country is also under question.
Government has to take effective setup in this regard. It has become very necessary to setup at least one Ophthalmology Institute in each Administrative Division in the country. Government can send teachers to friendly countries to make ophthalmology treatment quality one. Ministry of Health with the help of Foreign Ministry can drive to get scholarships full or part from different countries for teachers to impart quality ophthalmological higher education. A five-year plan should be made to set-up at least one Ophthalmology Institute in each Administrative Division. Millions of patients will regain their vision getting affordable ophthalmology medical treatment in the years to come. I like to draw attention of government in this regard.
