Eyebetes in the News

Diabetes is one of the largest non-communicable epidemics in the world. India will soon have more than 100 million diabetics. Diabetes is also one of the commonest causes of blindness in the world. It is important to raise awareness about Diabetes and Blindness not only amongst Diabetics but also the general population as everyone knows someone who is diabetic.

Sachin Tendulkar

“More often than not, we take our body and health for granted and believe that nothing can go wrong. And then when you realize you were wrong, it could be really late. Most of the people don’t know that around 40 lakh people have lost their eyesight due to diabetes. ‘Eyebetes’ is a wonderful initiative creating awareness about this issue.”
