North America Region
IAPB North America Region includes Canada, USA and most of the Caribbean countries.
Because of the nature of its constituent countries, major threats to eye health in this region include more chronic conditions such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration. Caribbean countries, however, also have a substantial issue with cataract blindness and low surgical rates remain a challenge.
