Much of this effort has been organized within the framework of Vision 2020, a global initiative for the elimination of avoidable blindness launched in 1999 by WHO and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (Foster and Resnikoff, 2005). Many countries have indeed made significant progress in preventing and curing VI. These efforts have included programs to expand the coverage and quality of cataract removal surgery (several successful models are described in Chapter Three). As a result of these policies, the prevalence rate of VI has been decreasing since the 1990s.

Efficiency is the key to Aravind’s operation. Industrial process improvement techniques are applied to every aspect of the operation, from system management and cost control to surgery details such as minimizing unnecessary motion in the operating room. As this implies, tasks are both highly specialized and highly standardized. Eye surgeons only do surgery (both MSICS and PHACO) and in the same way, many times over, in the process gaining a high degree of expertise in these tasks. Preparation work, such as instrument and patient preparation, is done by other, equally specialized staff.
