Like Sankara Nethralaya’s other community outreach programmes, the teleophthalmology service too depends largely on the goodwill of benevolent individuals and organisations. A lot of corporates, as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility, have lent support to Sankara Nethralaya’s teleophthalmology services.

Sankara Nethralaya’s teleophthalmology unit covers rural areas in West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Traveling to rural areas poses many a challenge to our team — irregular power supply, limited human resources, high fuel cost, to name a few. Our teleophthalmology van consists of state-of-the-art equipment and thereby ensures that rural patients undergo an ophthalmic examination which is on a par with the examination that paying patients undergo at the base hospital.

Support 1 teleophthalmology camp – Rs. 15,000
Support 10 teleophthalmology camps – Rs. 1,50,000
Support any number of teleophthalmology camps Number of camps ……

The cost includes capital expenditure, salaries of personnel and other recurring expenditure. The single-day teleophthalmology camp is conducted from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm
