Dr. Richard Bittar, Precision Neurosurgery Director MBBS (Honours), PhD, FRACS Dr. Richard Bittar is a highly qualified Australian neurosurgeon and researcher. Dr. Bittar is a visiting neurosurgeon at Royal Melbourne Hospital, Frankston Hospital, and numerous Private Hospitals in Melbourne. He is also Director of Precision Neurosurgery. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) works by targeting one of several areas in the brain that are part of the movement disorder pathway. By placing a fine wire (electrode) very precisely within the desired area, we are able to introduce a small amount of electrical current to these areas, which causes deactivation of the nerve cells. This electrode is connected to a battery which is implanted under the skin, allowing a small pulse of electricity to be delivered 24 hours a day. The most commonly targeted regions are the subthalamic nucleus (STN), thalamus (Vim), pallidum (GPi), and pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN) in Parkinson's disease, the thalamus (Vim) for essential tremor and multiple sclerosis tremor, and the pallidum (GPi) in dystonia. Precision Neurosurgery is a superspecialty neurosurgical practice which provides expertise in the treatment of a wide range of brain and spine disorders. Our highly trained surgeons utilise evidence-based scientific and clinical knowledge, considered judgement, refined surgical techniques, and state-of-the-art technology to give patients access to leading edge care. Our contemporary approach is firmly underpinned by the principles of compassion, humanity and ethics. Having a group of neurosurgeons with specific areas of subspecialisation, complementary skills, and a willingness to work together further facilitates optimal patient care.

Tourette's battle ......Liam's Story Tourette's and DBS.. Today To Night Channel 7
 
08:40
At just fifteen-years-old Liam Cook is living every teenager's worst nightmare - battling a debilitating condition and dreaming of changing his life. Liam has had enough of living with Tourette's syndrome, and is on a quest to change his life forever. "I dream of being just a normal person who can go out and not get stared at, not get imitated," the teenager said of his prayers for a transformation. He hopes that an incredible operation will be the answer. "I hope it will change my life. I know it might not, but I'm prepared for that," he said. Tourette's Syndrome is a debilitating neurological disorder that causes involuntary movements, and Liam has a severe case of it. "I wake up every morning and I check my chest to make sure I have no bruises, I check my legs, I check everywhere to make sure I have no bruises because I hit myself," he said. His hands are calloused - like the knuckles of a professional fighter. But unfortunately the only fights Liam has are with himself. Today Tonight's latest health stories He is lucky if he gets 30 seconds of respite between each physical attack. "I have tried to stop the Tourette's but my brain tells me 'do it, do it, do it'," he said. "I get sent out of class, I've been told to be quiet many, many times by teachers, even though my principal sent many emails to teachers saying I have Tourette's." More stories from reporter Laura Sparkes Through no fault of his own Liam is socially isolated. "I am totally isolated. It's terrible - the looks you get, the imitations you get, the bullying you get." His mum Deb feels helpless. "You'd like to try and restrain him and stop him doing it, but you know you're going to get thumped if you get too close," she said. "The force is incredible. He really is lashing into his chest." After suffering serious side effects from the various Tourette's medication, in pure desperation Liam's family sought the help of Professor Richard Bittar, after seeing a Today Tonight story of another Tourette's sufferer Jamie Furlong. Furlong underwent a modern-day targeted version of electric shock therapy, called Deep Brain Stimulation. Liam is the second-youngest in Australia to have ever had the operation, and only the eighth Tourette's patient Professor Bittar has operated on. The vast majority of patients undergoing Deep Brain Stimulation are Parkinson's Disease sufferers.

Pelvic Floor Exercises and Prostate Cancer
 
04:19
Pelvic Floor Exercises and The Bits Below the Belt DVD Surgery to treat men with prostate cancer is often followed by months of difficulty controlling urine flow, a condition known as urinary incontinence. But new research suggests that this problem may go away more quickly if the men perform certain exercises to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles. Researchers from the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, found that men who were taught how to perform pelvic floor exercises before and after surgery were more likely to have regained continence three months later. Men Doing Pelvic Exercises Recover Earlier In the current study, the researchers randomly assigned 38 men scheduled for radical prostatectomy to either a treatment group or a control group. The men in the treatment group were referred to a physical therapist. They were instructed how to do Pelvic Floor Exercises both before and after surgery, using biofeedback to ensure they were using the proper muscles. The control group did not receive any formal instruction. All of the men completed questionnaires regarding bladder function at regular intervals over the next year. Overall, 82% of the patients had regained continence (defined as not needing to use any absorbent pads) by the end of the year, including about equal numbers in both groups. But on average the men who had been educated about Pelvic exercises regained continence about one month earlier than those in the control group (at 12 weeks vs. 16 weeks). Most of the men who did not regain continence within a year were still using at least three absorbent pads a day, indicating continued severe incontinence. The study authors explained that these men probably had extensive damage to the bladder sphincter or severe dysfunction of the bladder after surgery, and the exercises alone were unable to compensate for this. But the exercises seemed to be effective. Pelvic floor exercise and education initiated prior to surgery is an effective noninvasive intervention useful for improving early return of urinary continence, the authors concluded. It would certainly have a positive impact on our patients undergoing radical prostatectomy in an effort to improve quality of life after major urological surgery. The results of the study were published in the Journal of Urology (Vol. 170, No. 1: 130-133) Pelvic Exercises and The Bits Below the Belt DVD Associate Professor Pauline Chiarelli is an academic at the University of Newcastle. She is a leading national and international speaker and the author of many research papers and books on Pelvic floor exercises for men and women. Pauline is widely acknowledged as a leading expert, yet she's also able to reach out to ordinary men and women and write and explain in a positive, uplifting style as revealed in this DVD. Pelvic Floor Exercises and the Bits Below the Belt DVD, has 9 Chapters covering 1.Introduction & Bits Below the Belt 2.Bladder Scans 3.Pelvic Floor Exercises 4.Your Exercise Plan 5.PFX Before Surgery 6.Being Boss of Your Bladder 7.Tips for Making You Boss of Your Bladder 8.Moving Forward 9.Credits and References The DVD can be played as a play all or the various chapters can be selected and reviewed. This is especial great when reviewing the hands on pelvic exercise chapters. The DVD goes for approx 25 minutes and gives a total incite into the Pelvic Floor muscles and how to exercise them and the Bits below the Belt. The viewer is taken into the treatment room a get a better understand of the bladder by watching a bladder scan and watching a pelvic floor muscles being exercised in real time. There is a also a very visual chapter on how to do pelvic exercises and what the bits below the belt look like when they are working out. This DVD will assist Australian men to understand their pelvic floor muscles and assist them in pre and post prostate cancer treatment outcomes with incontinency.

Overview of treatment options for ED and the penile implant option Erectile Dysfunction (ED) The penile implant option How does it feel to have a penile implant? FixED Erectile Dysfunction and Penile implants Treatment Urological Surgeon Prostate Cancer Diabetes mens health and wellness. Marriage and sex and health issues Australian leading surgeon Dr Chris Love Erectile Dysfunction, or ED, is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection that is sufficient for sexual intercourse. ED is the most common sexual disorder or sexual health issue among men. In fact, approximately 150 million men worldwide have some form of ED (sometimes called impotence). Erectile Dysfunction is a common condition. It can be progressive. Dealing with Erectile Dysfunction (or ED) can be challenging or difficult not only for men who have the condition (sometimes called impotence'), but also for their partners. Confidence matters — The penile implant option Many men with erectile dysfunction fail to achieve Consistent satisfactory results with drug regimens, Injection therapy and other treatment options. In fact, 70 percent of men drop out of injection therapy treatments within one year. For these men, there is hope. Penile implants have been an excellent surgical option for the past 30 years. Even in the face of less-invasive therapies, the penile prosthesis remains a viable and positive treatment option for patients seeking solutions beyond pills and injections. Patient satisfaction can be a complicated issue. However, a recent clinical study illustrated that penile prosthesis implantation has the highest satisfaction rates in comparison with pills or injection therapy for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. 95 percent of Erectile Dysfunction cases can be treated2 Up to 80 percent of all ED cases may be due to physical causes ED can be the first symptom of an underlying condition, such as heart disease or diabetes, where early detection and treatment are important Remember, it's important that you discuss your concerns with your doctor or medical professional, as: produced by Westymedia David Westbrook www.westymedia.com wwww.westymedia.com

A radical new brain operation, a procedure called Deep Brain Stimulation, is being used on patients suffering severe depression. The procedure has been performed for the first time in Australia at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. Associate Professor Richard Bittar, Neurosurgeon, Royal Melbourne Hospital, describes the procedure and its almost immediate effects. Dr. Richard Bittar, Precision Neurosurgery Director MBBS (Honours), PhD, FRACS Dr. Richard Bittar is a highly qualified Australian neurosurgeon and researcher. Dr. Bittar is a visiting neurosurgeon at Royal Melbourne Hospital, Frankston Hospital, and numerous Private Hospitals in Melbourne. He is also Director of Precision Neurosurgery. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) works by targeting one of several areas in the brain that are part of the movement disorder pathway. By placing a fine wire (electrode) very precisely within the desired area, we are able to introduce a small amount of electrical current to these areas, which causes deactivation of the nerve cells. This electrode is connected to a battery which is implanted under the skin, allowing a small pulse of electricity to be delivered 24 hours a day. The most commonly targeted regions are the subthalamic nucleus (STN), thalamus (Vim), pallidum (GPi), and pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN) in Parkinson's disease, the thalamus (Vim) for essential tremor and multiple sclerosis tremor, and the pallidum (GPi) in dystonia. Precision Neurosurgery is a superspecialty neurosurgical practice which provides expertise in the treatment of a wide range of brain and spine disorders. Our highly trained surgeons utilise evidence-based scientific and clinical knowledge, considered judgement, refined surgical techniques, and state-of-the-art technology to give patients access to leading edge care. Our contemporary approach is firmly underpinned by the principles of compassion, humanity and ethics. Having a group of neurosurgeons with specific areas of subspecialisation, complementary skills, and a willingness to work together further facilitates optimal patient care.

Tourette's Battle ......Liam's Story Part 2 Tourette's and DBS.. Today To Night Channel 7
 
06:10
At just fifteen-years-old Liam Cook is living every teenager's worst nightmare - battling a debilitating condition and dreaming of changing his life. Liam has had enough of living with Tourette's syndrome, and is on a quest to change his life forever. "I dream of being just a normal person who can go out and not get stared at, not get imitated," the teenager said of his prayers for a transformation. He hopes that an incredible operation will be the answer. "I hope it will change my life. I know it might not, but I'm prepared for that," he said. Tourette's Syndrome is a debilitating neurological disorder that causes involuntary movements, and Liam has a severe case of it. "I wake up every morning and I check my chest to make sure I have no bruises, I check my legs, I check everywhere to make sure I have no bruises because I hit myself," he said. His hands are calloused - like the knuckles of a professional fighter. But unfortunately the only fights Liam has are with himself. Today Tonight's latest health stories He is lucky if he gets 30 seconds of respite between each physical attack. "I have tried to stop the Tourette's but my brain tells me 'do it, do it, do it'," he said. "I get sent out of class, I've been told to be quiet many, many times by teachers, even though my principal sent many emails to teachers saying I have Tourette's." More stories from reporter Laura Sparkes Through no fault of his own Liam is socially isolated. "I am totally isolated. It's terrible - the looks you get, the imitations you get, the bullying you get." His mum Deb feels helpless. "You'd like to try and restrain him and stop him doing it, but you know you're going to get thumped if you get too close," she said. "The force is incredible. He really is lashing into his chest." After suffering serious side effects from the various Tourette's medication, in pure desperation Liam's family sought the help of Professor Richard Bittar, after seeing a Today Tonight story of another Tourette's sufferer Jamie Furlong. Furlong underwent a modern-day targeted version of electric shock therapy, called Deep Brain Stimulation. Liam is the second-youngest in Australia to have ever had the operation, and only the eighth Tourette's patient Professor Bittar has operated on. The vast majority of patients undergoing Deep Brain Stimulation are Parkinson's Disease sufferers.

Pelvic Floor Exercises and Bladder Scans
 
03:03
Pelvic Floor Exercises and The Bits Below the Belt DVD Surgery to treat men with prostate cancer is often followed by months of difficulty controlling urine flow, a condition known as urinary incontinence. But new research suggests that this problem may go away more quickly if the men perform certain exercises to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles. Researchers from the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, found that men who were taught how to perform pelvic floor exercises before and after surgery were more likely to have regained continence three months later. Men Doing Pelvic Exercises Recover Earlier In the current study, the researchers randomly assigned 38 men scheduled for radical prostatectomy to either a treatment group or a control group. The men in the treatment group were referred to a physical therapist. They were instructed how to do Pelvic Floor Exercises both before and after surgery, using biofeedback to ensure they were using the proper muscles. The control group did not receive any formal instruction. All of the men completed questionnaires regarding bladder function at regular intervals over the next year. Overall, 82% of the patients had regained continence (defined as not needing to use any absorbent pads) by the end of the year, including about equal numbers in both groups. But on average the men who had been educated about Pelvic exercises regained continence about one month earlier than those in the control group (at 12 weeks vs. 16 weeks). Most of the men who did not regain continence within a year were still using at least three absorbent pads a day, indicating continued severe incontinence. The study authors explained that these men probably had extensive damage to the bladder sphincter or severe dysfunction of the bladder after surgery, and the exercises alone were unable to compensate for this. But the exercises seemed to be effective. Pelvic floor exercise and education initiated prior to surgery is an effective noninvasive intervention useful for improving early return of urinary continence, the authors concluded. It would certainly have a positive impact on our patients undergoing radical prostatectomy in an effort to improve quality of life after major urological surgery. The results of the study were published in the Journal of Urology (Vol. 170, No. 1: 130-133) Pelvic Exercises and The Bits Below the Belt DVD Associate Professor Pauline Chiarelli is an academic at the University of Newcastle. She is a leading national and international speaker and the author of many research papers and books on Pelvic floor exercises for men and women. Pauline is widely acknowledged as a leading expert, yet she's also able to reach out to ordinary men and women and write and explain in a positive, uplifting style as revealed in this DVD. Pelvic Floor Exercises and the Bits Below the Belt DVD, has 9 Chapters covering 1.Introduction & Bits Below the Belt 2.Bladder Scans 3.Pelvic Floor Exercises 4.Your Exercise Plan 5.PFX Before Surgery 6.Being Boss of Your Bladder 7.Tips for Making You Boss of Your Bladder 8.Moving Forward 9.Credits and References The DVD can be played as a play all or the various chapters can be selected and reviewed. This is especial great when reviewing the hands on pelvic exercise chapters. The DVD goes for approx 25 minutes and gives a total incite into the Pelvic Floor muscles and how to exercise them and the Bits below the Belt. The viewer is taken into the treatment room a get a better understand of the bladder by watching a bladder scan and watching a pelvic floor muscles being exercised in real time. There is a also a very visual chapter on how to do pelvic exercises and what the bits below the belt look like when they are working out. This DVD will assist Australian men to understand their pelvic floor muscles and assist them in pre and post prostate cancer treatment outcomes with incontinency.

For men, the rate has risen by 1.7% a year, a total of 18.7% over the same period. • The five-year relative survival rate for melanoma is 90% for Australian men and 95% for Australian women. Skin cancer is the most prevalent of all cancers. The main cause is over exposure to sunlight, especially sunburn. Family history is also an important risk factor. In the treatment of any skin cancers, early detection and removal is the best defence. As the sun is the main culprit, the most effective form of protection is to be sunsmart, using sun screen, a hat and shirt whenever possible. NB: It is essential that the medical staff have a clear view of your skin so when attending a skin check please be sure to have NO MAKE UP, SUNSCREEN OR MOISTURISER. On your arrivial our friendly reception staff will ensure they have the appropriate personal details required for your visit. (click here to complete form prior to appointment). You will then be directed to a waiting area. Once inside the Mole Mapping or Skin Check room the Melanographer or nurse will discuss your history and any concerns you may have. You will then be asked to change into a gown provided and the Mole Map or Skin Check will commence. At the end of the map or check a doctor will join you to examine all moles and lesions and discuss appropriate treatment if required. This will include information on costs and post treatment care.

Dr. Richard Bittar, Precision Neurosurgery Director MBBS (Honours), PhD, FRACS Dr. Richard Bittar is a highly qualified Australian neurosurgeon and researcher. Dr. Bittar is a visiting neurosurgeon at Royal Melbourne Hospital, Frankston Hospital, and numerous Private Hospitals in Melbourne. He is also Director of Precision Neurosurgery. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) works by targeting one of several areas in the brain that are part of the movement disorder pathway. By placing a fine wire (electrode) very precisely within the desired area, we are able to introduce a small amount of electrical current to these areas, which causes deactivation of the nerve cells. This electrode is connected to a battery which is implanted under the skin, allowing a small pulse of electricity to be delivered 24 hours a day. The most commonly targeted regions are the subthalamic nucleus (STN), thalamus (Vim), pallidum (GPi), and pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN) in Parkinson's disease, the thalamus (Vim) for essential tremor and multiple sclerosis tremor, and the pallidum (GPi) in dystonia. Precision Neurosurgery is a superspecialty neurosurgical practice which provides expertise in the treatment of a wide range of brain and spine disorders.

IVF Dr Nicholas Lolatgis - What happens at the Hospital
 
08:52
IVF Dr Nicholas Lolatgis:What happens at the Hospital For most people, the process of conceiving and giving birth to a child happens very naturally. But for one in seven Australian couples, it is a journey in bravely dealing with reproductive problems; overcoming barriers to becoming pregnant; and putting an end to the heartbreak and distress of recurring miscarriage. The private practice of world renowned fertility specialist Dr Nick Lolatgis is specially set up to provide the advanced Immunological and IVF treatments needed to give patients their very best chance of success in seeing results ~ and just as importantly, to minimise the time frame in which this is achieved. "Not Everyone Needs IVF" “For around 30% of the couples I see, my investigative tests will verify that ovulation problems (usually caused by Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) are affecting the release of eggs ~ which, in most situations, can be quickly and simply addressed by ovulation-inducing tablet medication; without any need for IVF treatment. In more complex cases, where IVF is required, my pro-active approach to developing strategies that produce positive results sooner is even more critical to minimising the emotional and physical stress (and financial strain) that any couple needs to endure. Where some doctors are content to keep persisting with treatments which are failing to work, I look to progressively modify and refine my ‘line of attack’ after any unproductive IVF cycle; and leave no stone unturned in identifying and successfully addressing the cause. To find answers that respond to each patient’s exact personal challenges, I’m not afraid to think outside the traditional ‘box’; explore the use of cutting edge medical technologies that I believe could make a real difference; or call on the world leading team I partner at Monash IVF to join me in pulling out all stops.

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Parkinsons Australia

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for movement disorders and tremor Australia edited from 60 minutes program Dr. Richard Bittar, Precision Neurosurgery Director MBBS (Honours), PhD, FRACS Dr. Richard Bittar is a highly qualified Australian neurosurgeon and researcher. Dr. Bittar is a visiting neurosurgeon at Royal Melbourne Hospital, Frankston Hospital, and numerous Private Hospitals in Melbourne. He is also Director of Precision Neurosurgery. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) works by targeting one of several areas in the brain that are part of the movement disorder pathway. By placing a fine wire (electrode) very precisely within the desired area, we are able to introduce a small amount of electrical current to these areas, which causes deactivation of the nerve cells. This electrode is connected to a battery which is implanted under the skin, allowing a small pulse of electricity to be delivered 24 hours a day. The most commonly targeted regions are the subthalamic nucleus (STN), thalamus (Vim), pallidum (GPi), and pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN) in Parkinson's disease, the thalamus (Vim) for essential tremor and multiple sclerosis tremor, and the pallidum (GPi) in dystonia. Precision Neurosurgery is a superspecialty neurosurgical practice which provides expertise in the treatment of a wide range of brain and spine disorders. Our highly trained surgeons utilise evidence-based scientific and clinical knowledge, considered judgement, refined surgical techniques, and state-of-the-art technology to give patients access to leading edge care. Our contemporary approach is firmly underpinned by the principles of compassion, humanity and ethics.

Why Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy  ward round 1
 
04:10
Why Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy? Dr HODO HAXHIMOLLA MBBS, FRACS Urology www.prostatecancercanberra.com Suite 6, National Capital Private Hospital Corner of Hospital Road and Gilmore Crescent Garran ACT 2605 Tel: 02 6281 7900 Fax: 02 6281 7955 Mobile: 0412 533 542 Email : hodo_haxhimolla@yahoo.com Why Surgery? 'Currently, radical prostatectomy is the only treatment for localised prostate cancer that has shown a cancer-specific survival benefit...in a prospective, randomized trial.'
European Association of Urologists Guidelines on Prostate Cancer, 2008. Why Laparoscopy? Laparoscopy is a technique of performing a surgical operation using instruments inserted through narrow hollow tubes ('ports') rather than through a larger incision, as in traditional surgery. The result is shorter hospitalisation and convalescence, less bleeding and post-operative pain and fewer wound complications. Although laparoscopy is a type of keyhole surgery, the view obtained is much better than looking through a keyhole. Modern equipment produces a wide, bright, clear and magnified view of the operation. The gas used to distend the abdomen during laparoscopy also greatly reduces bleeding during surgery. Patient information on laparoscopic radical prostatectomy Before the operation
you will be admitted either the day before or on the day of your operation. You will already have had the necessary pre-operative (e.g. blood, urine and ECG) tests. You will be visited by an anaesthetist and a surgeon before the operation to answer any remaining questions. The operation
although laparoscopic surgery avoids a large incision, laparoscopic radical prostatectomy is still a complex operation and takes 2-3 hours to perform through five 5-10 mm incisions. Following the operation
when you wake from the anaesthetic you will have a catheter (a tube that drains urine from the bladder into a bag) in the penis, a drain in your abdomen and a drip in the arm. You will have minimal discomfort but may feel the desire to urinate. Patients are allowed to drink freely 6 hours following surgery and to eat after 12 hours. Patients are ready for discharge with their catheter after 2-3 days and are re-admitted after the 13th day for catheter removal. This is painless. Constipation is common after any major operation and should not be a concern to you. If you are uncomfortable take 2 senna tablets at night (they take 12 hours to work). Do not strain to open your bowels. Continence, you may not be continent immediately. This is because the valve which normally keeps you dry (sphincter) is swollen and has sutures in it, preventing it from moving through its full range. The number of pads you need to use will reduce step-wise with time. Performing the pelvic floor exercises you will have been taught will hasten this process. Most (75%) of patients are dry by 3 months but a few take up to a year. If you are unfortunate enough to need a pad beyond a year (4% of patients) you will be offered insertion of an artificial sphincter. Sex,
do not be afraid to experiment with erections and sex at any time after the operation, but remember that it can take up to 2 ½ years for erections to reach their maximum strength and that intercourse is much easier with adequate lubrication (e.g. KY jelly). You should also be aware that you do not need an erection to climax. Remember also that if erections do not return that all men can be made potent again somehow. Resuming activities and follow-up you should expect to return to most activities about 3 weeks after laparoscopic and 3 months after open surgery. You are safe to drive as soon as you are comfortable enough to brake hard to avoid a possible accident (usually by 10 days). Your first outpatient appointment will be 4 weeks after the operation, when the results of the laboratory analysis (histology) of your prostate should be available. Your first PSA test will be done 2 weeks before your next outpatient appointment (3 months following surgery). You will be seen every 3 months for a year, every 6 months for 5 years and then annually until 15 years.

History Maker Vietnam Vision Project Australia  2012 - 5000 Cataracts Procedures
 
06:56
Vietnam Vision Project A report from the Health Ministry of Vietnam in 2001 revealed that 463,552 people were suffering from bilateral blindness and 889,276 people had blindness in one eye. Cataract is the major cause of blindness in people over 50 and usually affects both eyes (60.9%). Emphasied again in 2009, at the Da Nang Prevention of Blindness conference Professor Do Nhu Hon, Director of National Eye Institute of Vietnam, reported the number of people suffered from total blindness were more than 400,000. Out of which cataracts account for approximately 66% of cases. The other main causes of blindness are glaucoma (6.5%), refractory errors (2.5%) trachoma (1.7%). There are more than 120,000 cataracts operations in Vietnam each year. Unfortunately, the annual incidence is relatively higher at approximately 170,000 new people affected by cataracts. Women account for a higher portion of the population suffering from cataract blindness. The majorities of the blind people live in rural areas and are poor. Despite a lot of effort in the treatment and prevention of blindness and help from overseas medical missions and charitable organisations, blindness is still a major problem in Vietnam. produced by www.westymedia.com.au
