Providing Free Eye Care To The Elderly- HelpAge India
When the eye’s naturally clear lens turns out to be clouded, it’s known as a cataract. Most cataracts are because of aging. In cataract operation, the hazy lens is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens implant.
In the last thirty years, HelpAge India has supported approximately 850,000 eye surgeries on poor as well as disadvantaged elderly by partnering with approximately 400 organizations (eye hospitals, trusts, NGOs). Each year, over 20000 cataract operations are performed all over India with support from HelpAge India through credible as well as competent Eye Hospitals; and organizations working in the field of eye-care. The project consists of awareness generation on eye care, avoidance of eye diseases, safety measures to be taken during infections etc.
Helpage India also works for cancer care. So, if you wish to support the cause, do make a donation to support an elderly.
