Touching lives: experiences of positive change

Sightsavers has been working in the Sundarbans for seven years and, until 2013, had supported the establishment of 2 eye hospitals and 2 vision centres.

The hospitals provide secondary level eye health care whereas the vision centres provide primary level care, including screening and provision of spectacles. Although these facilities are offering much needed services, they are however inadequate in meeting the huge demands in this under served and complex geographical area.
