Treatment Schemes

To those living aboard, it is always a matter of priority that their loved ones get the best treatment when they need and get that treatment close to home. Sankara Nethralaya has introduced the “Annual Complimentary Courtesy Master Eye Check-up” aimed at Indians aboard, who are concerned about the visual health of their near and dear relatives/friends living in or visiting India. These check ups are very useful in ensuring healthy eye care.

Annual Complimentary Courtesy Master Eye Check-up (ACCMEC) comes as a great convenience for Indians in the USA, whose parents, in-laws and other near and dear ones are living in or visiting India. A person living in the USA can pay US $500 and nominate one individual. This nominee will be eligible to undergo a comprehensive eye examination each and every year at Sankara Nethralaya. Once a donor sends in the name/s of the nominee under the above packages, the Patient Relation Officer at Sankara Nethralaya will get in touch with the nominee(s) to ascertain their convenience for a date for consultation, and fix an appointment for the consultation. Sankara Nethralaya will provide courtesy transport with escort for those in and around Chennai (within 30 kms). Nominees can also be parents, in-laws, and relatives living in the USA who visit India on a vacation and would like to undergo comprehensive eye examination at Sankara Nethralaya.

Or a person in the USA can pay USD 100 and nominate two individuals in India who will receive a comprehensive eye examination for that year only. The process is same as the one for perpetual check up outlined earlier.
