Nearly 2.5 million Indians suffer from corneal blindness with transplants as their only option. However, there is an acute shortage of healthy, transplantable corneal tissue all over the world.
By pledging your eyes to give the gift of sight after your death, you can ensure that somebody else will be able to see and experience the simple joys of life. Even eyes that may not be technically suited for a transplant are invaluable for research. If you have any questions on the process of eye removal or the technicalities involved, the FAQ section will help you find answers.
You can also pledge your eyes online by filling up the Uniform Donor Pledge, and mailing it to the CL Gupta Eye Bank.
Sight Savers are patients and non-patients who make a donation that helps us provide free treatment to people from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Many of the severest forms of visual disability occur among populations who cannot afford treatment, particularly if it involves surgery and long-term medical care or rehabilitation.
Patients who are classified as Sight Savers pay a slightly higher fee that covers the cost of their treatment as well as the treatment of a non-paying patient. Non-patients who are Sight Savers usually donate toward a specific cause, such as a certain number of free cataract surgeries per year, or the rehabilitation of so many children per year. The donations from Sight Savers make it possible for us to set aside fifty percent of our services for those who cannot afford to pay.
Many departments in the Institute will be delighted to accept offers of help from interested volunteers. One area where volunteers can be of use is the rehabilitation center. They can help with recording audio textbooks for blind and visually impaired students, creating Braille versions of books (volunteers are first trained in Braille), and participating in public awareness or advocacy activities.
