Largest Blindfolded Run

If you close your eyes you will learn!

At 8:30 AM all participants will run the blind folded run. You will be blind folded while going and your partner will be blindfolded when returing back. If you have registered for any other distance then you do not need to register again. If you are coming only for this record setting run then registration is must.

WHAT OUR CSR PARTNER SAY..

It was a great experience being part of the NIO Vision Marathon 2018, especially participating in the largest blindfolded run where our Bitwise Foundation volunteers teamed up with the visually impaired students and Paraplegic Rehabilitation Centre, Kirkee employees to encourage them & make all participants aware about about the importance of eyesight and how simple measures and precautions can help us prevent avoidable blindness.This marathon has taught us to be socially responsible towards our co-members in society who need our help and time. It has taught us how our physical challenges should not stop us from achieving our goals in life.

Thanks a lot for organizing an amazing event!

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetes is the number one reason for reversible blindness. Blood vessels in the retina may swell and leak fluid. New vessels may be weak or may grow on the surface of the retina. This makes yearly eye check up mandatory for the diabetic patients.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness and the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. According to WHO, 4.5 million people are blind due to glaucoma around the world.

Cataract

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. Cataracts often develop slowly and can affect one or both eyes. Symptoms may include faded colors, blurry vision, halos around light, trouble with bright lights, and trouble seeing at night.

Blindness in Children

45% of blind children were blind from avoidable causes
Such as: Corneal scarring (mainly from Vitamin A deficiency and measles), Childhood Cataract, Retinopathy of prematurity, Refractive error (mostly myopia), and low vision are reasons that can be avoided.
