To control preventable blindness, the Hospital has undertaken the following activities:
A large number of people dwell in a world of darkness and the only cure for this is corneal transplant, that is new eyes. Eye donation awareness camps are organized to increase awareness regarding the need for eye donation in this region. So far the Hospital has collected 25 eyes in Jharkhand of which 19 healthy corneas have been transplanted successfully. As eye donation in Jharkhand is poor, since August 2013 corneas from other eye banks are being brought and corneal transplants are being done in Ranchi.
