Ukrainian ophthalmologists are convinced that the problem of loss of vision is one of the most topical in the country. Today, in Transcarpathia, as it is noted by local specialists, ophthalmology is at a fairly high level. And in general in Ukraine the number of visually impaired people for the last six years has declined, although the problem of eye diseases has not disappeared. Ophthalmologists call on all people to constantly monitor the health of their eyes, because every 5 seconds one adult is losing sight, and a child – every minute.
