Sri Sankaradeva Nethralaya has a Structured Outreach Programme and under these we frequently conduct eye camps in rural areas where we detect patients requiring surgery and subsequently bring them to our hospital for surgery. The entire cost of treatment (including investigation procedures and surgery with Intra Ocular Lens implant) is borne by our institution.
For better pediatric eye care, Sri Sankaradeva Nethralaya has established a dedicated pediatric ophthalmology unit with ORBIS International, USA. Under this project, service will be delivered upto the grassroot level in collaboration with other non-governmental organization. The aim is for primary screening of school children for eye diseases and development of manpower.
