Envisioning a beautiful tomorrow

August 2018

A large population of our country still resides in villages.

In most rural communities, eye health (if available) is limited to cataract screening with limited or no attention given to other eye ailments. With the expansion of primary health under the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), making primary eye care available to rural and remote areas will significantly improve eye health of the community. Sightsavers through its REH programme seeks to create awareness, provide quality eye health services and eliminate avoidable blindness among the rural population.
