Community Outreach

Once Sankara Eye Hospital was established in Coimbatore, one of the first initiatives that the team undertook was to conduct exclusive outreach camps to raise awareness, screen and detect eye defects and ailments and treat these, where possible. Over the years, the outreach camps added a host of services; today, Sankara  Eye Hospital has a Comprehensive Community Eye Health Programme that provides holistic eye care and has tailor-made services to address the needs of both, different age groups and various eye defects. The primary goal of the Community Eye Health Programme is to fight against preventable and curable blindness.
