Lotus Vision Research Trust
Sight – God’s gift to all of us is the most precious of all our senses. Blindness is darkness in one’s life and it is unbearable misery and forces one to be dependent on others. Cataract is the most common cause of curable blindness in India. Out of 17 million people who are blinded by mature cataract in the world, 9 million live in India. A shocking 52.9%
India is a vast country having 28 States and 7 Union Territories with 593 districts, with an average population of nearly two million in each district. Eye care approach to the problem of avoidable blindness, prevention and creating awareness among the society is a great task facing the ophthalmic community. Growing population, inadequate infrastructure, Poverty, aging population, diseases in epidemic proportions, Ignorance and non-availability of eye care centers in the rural areas are the main causes of the blindness.
Lotus Vision Research Trust (a non-profitable charitable trust) had a humble beginning in the year 1993. It was established to prevent and eradicate blindness with dedication and humanitarian approach. The main motto of the trust is Mission for Perfect Vision. Providing solutions to the eye diseases, creating awareness and taking preventive eye care measures for life long quality vision.
