Ophthalmology at Chindran in collaboration with LCT

The Ishanya Foundation in collaboration with the Laxmi Charitable trust conducts an Ophthalmology OPD every Monday at Chindran in Taloja, to diagnose eye diseases like Cataract, Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy and Trachoma among the villages.
The total of 340 patients were screened in the OPD during the year. In the school screening programme at Chindran and Pale Khurd from February to March and July to August, a total of 884 children were screened for eye problems.

32 Cataract surgeries were sponsored during the year. The Ishanya Foundation also sponsored the surgeries of a patient who had developed Glaucoma and Cataract in his left eye and a little boy who suffered from a complicated eye problem.


Training of Jyoti Parees to build awareness of Eye Care

The Ishanya Foundation in collaboration with the Laxmi Charitable Trust trained 14 women and girls on the basic anatomy of the eye, how to examine a patient and an introduction to very simple diseases which can easily be detected by torch light examinations. Six Jyoti Parees are conducting house to house visits in the villages creating awareness and motivating the patients to come to the OPD for screening purposes.
