CHAUDHARY ANGURI DEVI DAUDAYAL EYE BANK & HOSPITAL


There are approximately 25 million blind people in India, which is about one-fourth of the total blind population of the world. This means 25 out of every 1000 people in India are blind compared to just 3 per 1000 in the developed countries. Blindness in most cases is avoidable and curable. Out of the 25 million, approximately 5 million are blind due to the defective cornea. A good majority of these blind are children in their early childhood. Corneal blindness means that one’s cornea, which is the transparent thin outer layer of the eye, becomes clouded due to nutritional deficiency, injury or disease such as trachoma, corneal ulcer, conjunctivitis etc. leading to loss of vision. This blindness can be cured in most cases by corneal grafting. Corneal grafting is performed on a patient when a voluntary donor donates his/her eyes after death. The sad part is that the majority of these blind people never get cured because of non-availability of the suitable cornea. There is severe lack of donor's eyes in India and only about 20,000 operations are being performed every year, while 30,000 new victims are added each year to the long list of blind people waiting to be cured. Although there are enough qualified surgeons and plenty of potential patients corneal transplantation is rather scarce for want of donor's eyes. Nearly 10 million people die in India, every year. Sadly the corneal donation does not exceed more than a few thousand. The reasons for the very low number of eye donation in India are manifold. For the purpose, Kalyanam Karoti established an eye bank at Kalyan Dham.
