with the Sight First programme of
the Lions Club International and
2020 Sight for All programme by the
Govt. of India, we are doing more
than around 150 free surgeries per
month on an average. Our dedicated
doctors are at little or no pay
to provide skillful surgery to
restore sight to the visually
Free Eye Screening camps are organised at near and far flundf areas and patients selected for surgery are brought into our hospital, treated and then they are dropped back to their home areas. Our OPD also runs on very nominal card charges and patients benefit by this too. Our speciality Glaucoma Clinic has also been started to help people under the Preventable Blindness Program.
Polio Corrective Surgery Camp
Organised every year under the able
Captaining of Dr. G. Jagadish of B I R R D,
Tirupathy (one of the largest polio corrective
surgery centres of the world). We organise this camp
totally free of cost over seven days. Approximately
200 to 300 patients are benefited every year. Every
thing from medicines, food & crutches are
provided free of cost. Patients come to us from neighbouring states of Bihar / Orissa / Assam etc.
to avail of this facility.
It is indeed heartwarming to see patients who have crawled into our hospital before the surgery walk out after the procedure is done. Food and stay is also provided fee of cost to those who have come with the patients.
