    The state of Telangana in India has launched a program called Kanti Velugu, which aims to screen 10 million individuals for eye problems. The program, which was launched in October 2018, is a joint initiative of the state government and the National Health Mission. It is designed to provide free eye screening services to people in rural areas who may not have access to such services otherwise.

    Under the Kanti Velugu program, teams of medical professionals travel to remote villages and conduct eye screenings for residents. The screenings are conducted using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, and the results are recorded electronically. If any problems are detected, individuals are referred to hospitals or clinics for further treatment. The program also provides free spectacles to those who need them.

    The Kanti Velugu program has been a huge success so far, with over 10 million individuals screened in just over a year. The program has helped to identify thousands of people with eye problems, many of whom were unaware of their condition. The program has also helped to raise awareness about the importance of regular eye check-ups and has encouraged people to seek treatment when necessary. The success of the Kanti Velugu program has led to calls for similar programs to be implemented in other parts of India and around the world.
