Be an Angel Program

In spite of the advancements in the field of eye care, pediatric eye care in India still
remains a challenging field because it requires special skills to perform surgeries
on a child. In India 1 out of every 1000 children is blind. This is indeed
troublesome, considering that a visually impaired child means a greater number of
years without proper vision and subsequently a reduced number of opportunities
in life. All this can be prevented if proper eye care is provided on time, but it is
often neglected because of lack of understanding, poverty or ignorance. To fight
these challenges we have introduced ‘Adopt a child program’, through which we
provide eye care to less fortunate children with the help of donations. We have
multiple options under this initiative where the donors can sponsor an eye
examination, a surgery or low vision aids for children.

Fight Diabetic Vision

‘Fight Diabetic Vision’ is an initiative by REH. The objective of this initiative is to
fight vision loss among diabetic patients by the means of early detection.
Currently, 4 crore Indians are estimated to be suffering from diabetes. By 2025,
this number will rise to 7 crore approximately. This is a serious issue because with
the growing incidence of diabetes the risk of vision loss also increases as these
patients are more susceptible to disorders like diabetic retinopathy, cataract and
glaucoma.

Through this drive, we aim to detect diabetic retinopathy in its early stage by
organizing screening camps for diabetic patients. The best way to fight against
diabetic retinopathy is early detection and quick action.

Act Before Glaucoma Strikes

Glaucoma is the third leading causes of blindness in India. But it presents no
symptoms and is therefore known as the silent thief of vision. The only way to
detect glaucoma is through an eye examination by an ophthalmologist.

Through this drive, we plan to conduct checkup camps for corporates and
students to diagnose and treat glaucoma before it steals their vision.
