Created to provide year-round eye care in the state of Andhra Pradesh, the Lions Eye Hospital was supported by Ferro Alloys Corporation Ltd. and Operation Eyesight for 23 years. Constructed with spacious outpatient and inpatient areas, there’s also an operational room complex and staff quarters on campus. The hospital provides care for thousands in the plains and hills of the Eastern Ghats mountain range.
As with many Indian hospitals, outreach is an important part of their mission. Diagnostic treatment education clinics provide eye exams, treat infections and identify patients for surgery. This is combined with a regular series of school screenings. The outreach program also includes family education sessions which educate and promote healthier lifestyles and improved living conditions.
