Project Description

The Project caters to the growing need of eye care services to the underprivileged. In spite of the fact that many of the vision impairment diseases are preventable in nature, many people still have blindness as they do not receive the required eye-screening at the right time. Visit to eye care professionals for comprehensive eye examination can help detect problems at the right time. Many of the people are not even aware about importance of eye care. The strength of this project is that it shows immediate impact by providing refraction glasses and referring people for cataract surgeries. Out of the 37+ million people across the globe who are blind, over 15 million+ are from India. What's worse, 75% of these are cases of avoidable blindness. Additionally, Proper vision care complements other important aspects off a person's life like education, employment, safety, etc. Hence, this project has a huge potential to benefit the overall growth and well-being of people.

 

Key Objectives of the project are: 
1.       Comprehensive eye care to the population which is underprivileged, under-served and tribal that have less access to the advanced healthcare facilities.
2.       Development of sustainable infrastructure by setting up vision Centers.
3.       Strengthening of human resources and capacity building of the local people, which provides them work opportunities and ensures sustainability of the project.
5.       Along with the major focus on refractive errors and cataract surgeries, special attention is given to cases of cross eye, squint, diabetic retinopathy, Glaucoma & childhood blindness.
