Based on the highly
successful experiment of
Aravind Eye Care System (www.aravind.org),
Madurai, India, GRACE VISION intends
as a platform to :
Set up clusters of "primary
vision care centres"
in under-served areas. These centres will
screen patients for preventable blindness.
Set up secondary base hospitals, each
which will serve a cluster of primary vision
centres and provide services to them.
"Loss of sight can be the
greatest tragedy next
to death, yet hundreds of thousands of people
in the world are suffering from blindness.
Participation by the public is the urgent cry in
this mission of restoring vision"
Venkatasamy (Dr. V)
