Alertness is the Key to early Detection of Eye Cancer
Eye Cancer is a life-altering disease – it not just can potentially wipe out the vision but also can endanger the eye and the life. Every year, about 10,000 new eye cancer cases are diagnosed in India, 70 - 80% in adults and 20 – 30% in children. About 1500 children are diagnosed with retinoblastoma each year in India.
