This paper is a comparative review on the global and Indian perspective on blindness. The estimates, initiatives and better plans are described in detail. As India is trying her best to help with own people to achieve the global status of equality as in all realms of life this attempt is really significant. Thoughts about how much we have undergone and how much left to reach are key points to address in each phase of all kinds of developmental initiatives. The paper has been divided into two parts to come up with clear thoughts for further actions. © 2018, Indian Journal of Public Health Research and Development. All rights reserved.
