We have been working alongside Indian communities for nearly 60 years and today, we are working in communities in 90 districts across 17 states: Andra Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Delhi, Jammu, Kashmir, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharastra, Meghalaya, Odisha, Rajasthan, Telengana, Uttara Khand, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.
Our work is focused on communities and connecting patients and families with quality eye care.
By establishing local vision centres and training community health workers, we are bringing primary eye care services closer to communities. Established at strategic locations in a project area, vision centres are a vital link between communities and hospitals.
Through partnerships with partner hospitals, we not only connect people with their local health system, but also ensure patients get the eye health care they need.
Through training and infrastructure upgrades, we are strengthening India’s health system and making eye health care a key part of primary health care.
Last year, together we screened more than 1.3 million Indians for eye conditions through our partner hospitals and vision centres, enabling us to perform nearly 150,000 sight-saving eye surgeries.
