A Commitment to Society
The Project Vision has been able to organize for cataract operation for over 3000 persons sofar. Most of them are socio economically marginalized persons who cannot afford to go for acataract operation otherwise. Camps to identify such were conducted and patients taken for theoperations. Small groups were taken directly for such check-up and operated. Project Drishtiand Mahaveer Jain Hospital were the main partners in this program. Both were glad to havepersons ready for such interventions. It was a completely free procedure.
Ms Antoniamma coordinated this effort for The Project Vision. The fact that 60% of all visuallyimpairment is caused due to cataract makes it imperative that we focus our attention on thisgroup. The detection and treatment of such cases is a step towards tackling this wide problem
