Cataract Screening and Surgery

Narayana Nethralaya conducts periodic rural and urban cataract camps for the under previlaged. All patients screened at the camps are transported to our base hospital, operated, housed and transported back to their villages free of cost on a regular basis. All cases receive state-of-the-art surgical expertise and undergo an Intra Ocular Lens implantation.

In collaboration with local NGOs and well wishers, we conduct cataract screening camps at peripheral suburban and rural areas. Surgeries are performed free of cost or at subsidized cost.
