To work towards freedom from preventable and curable blindness
The organisation was founded as a volunteer driven public health initiative in 1977. Realizing the large burden of avoidable blindness, the trust decided to take on blindness prevention and cure in a structured form from 1985. It was also realised that majority requiring treatment were from disadvantaged and rural communities. Today our sustainable model of eye care enables 150000 vision-restoring surgeries with beneficiaries identified through outreach.
Dr R V Ramani, Founder and Managing Trustee, Sankara Eye Care Institutions, India graduated from Kasturba Medical College, Manipal. Driven by a social purpose he was able to motivate likeminded people from across the social spectrum to become a part of the Sankara movement. A Rotarian, he has been recognised by various national and international awards including the Role Model of India Award. Dr Ramani is an advisor on health care to CII and also on the Vision 2020 advisory body established by Government of India.

 Gift of Vision
Shinderpal Kaur aged 45 years, resident of Jagraon Village, Ludhiana district, came to camp with a complaint of diminished vision. She had been suffering with blurred vision from her left eye since 4 years. She was a teacher in one of the private schools in her village. Her husband is a driver. Once when he went for work he did not returned. Even the family does not know whether he is alive or not. Her son is 19 yrs old, studying in 10th standard and doing a part time job as a helper and earning Rs. 2000 per month and daughter is studying in 6th standard. After the second delivery her health condition become worse and become a wheel chair user. Due to financial status she did not take proper health care. Since 5 years she found it difficult in seeing things. One day her sister was going to buy something from nearby grocery shop and there she saw the banner of Sankara Eye Hospital that they are organizing a free eye check up and surgery camp for poor and needy people. With the support of her son they reached the camp. The doctors identified her cataract problem and referred her to base hospital for further medical support She had lost hope to see the things clearly because she did not have money to get herself operated. But after getting her surgery done she is quite happy and relaxed that without spending money she got her vision back and at least she was able to cure one of her problems. She could not imagine any hospital treating poor and needy people like Sankara Eye Hospital. She is very happy and thankful to almighty and staff for treating her well
