The Mission of Bihar Eye Bank Trust is to establish a non-profit institute for super specialized treatment of all types of eye diseases as well as an Eye Bank with facilities for cornea grafting and research and training in this field and allied subjects. The eastern region in India, where the incidence of blindness is high, has great need of such an institution.
The trust is endeavoring to eliminate corneal blindness and to restore sight and hope to all in need through eye donation and corneal transplant. There is a special thrust on reaching the poor, the tribal people and the miners who are deprived of timely treatment owing to poverty, ignorance or distance from hospitals. No poor patient is turned away for lack of money.
