FACTS AND FIGURES
There are 40 million blinds in the world
Half of the world's blind are Indian
In India 80% blindness is due to CATARACT.
There are 22 million cataract backlogs in India.
Mass blindness will double by the year 2025 because blindness from cataract will increase with increased life expectancy.
Almost 4 millions get blind by cataract every year.
In India 80% Eye surgeon live in cities or towns whereas 80% of our population lives in villages.
It is twice expensive to support a blind as to restore sight to the blind
Many factors like poverty,lack of education,lack of motivation,lack of awareness,poor transportation,early onset of cataract,surgeon's and patients ratio etc attribute to such a geometrical rise in Indian blindness.
JAGJOT NETRALAY known as Al-Noor Eye Hospital is a community based charitable Rural Eye Hospital,established in 1990 to serve with its two way unique programme for eye care delivery in rural and underprivileged population.
1.TO REACH: Since 80 % of Indian population lives in villages,health delivery programme will succeed only if they are village based,so we have stepped in with diagnostic,therapeutic,surgical,health education and promotional facilities at the village level keeping in view that remedy lies in not only eradicating cataract but creating conducive conditions where it is prevented,controlled and treated and thus,eye care becomes way of life.
2.TO TEACH:With the aim to multiply our human resources rather than to do hundreds of cataract operations ourselves in eye camps,we teach our colleagues quality low cost surgical techniques so that they will ultimately provide excellent vision to the cataract victims of India.
The Hospital is situated at SABALPUR, 20 km east of central Patna along the river Ganges on the national highway 30 and is connected through Eastern Railway,1 km from Bankaghat station in a voluntary building with suffecient land to build a permanent hospital.
The hospital plans to cover a periphery of 100 km inhabiting about 10 million rural population with its "Out reach programme through satellite clinics and mobile eye camps.
"Bring-in patients treated with modern facilities in the base hospital,which has started with 20 beds and would be increased upto 100.
We have examined and treated more than 60,000 cases.
We have operated 12,000 cases since 1993
We have trained 6 Ophthalmologist and 10 technicians.
We have organised free Lens implantation training camps
We are going to organise First Free PHACO Camps(First such camp in Bihar)
