Project Eye-Care

Normal vision is essential for carrying out our day to day activity efficiently. Defective or total loss of vision is not only a personal tragedy but a national one too. Majority of blindness is avoidable (either treatable or potentially preventable), but a large proportion of those affected remain blind due to lack of awareness and access to affordable eye care. The Government and many voluntary agencies are organising various awareness programmes and free eye check-up camps in association with medical institutions to deal with this problem.

At MCF, we started a programme "Project Eye-Care" to prevent blindness especially in the rural areas in association with K. S. Hegde Medical College Hospital (KSHEMA), Mangalore. Two villages- Sacharipete, near Moodabidri and Vogga, near B.C.Road are selected for this project this year and three free eye check-up and cataract surgery camps will be conducted in each of the above places in a year. The surgery will be conducted at KSHEMA and the spectacles for the correction of vision will be provided free by MCF.
