Teleophthalmology Donation Schemes

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 Tamil Nadu and West Bengal. 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 a comprehensive ophthalmic examination which is on a par with the examination that paying patients undergo at the base hospital. Support any number of teleophthalmology camps

Support 1 teleophthalmology camp – Rs. 20,000
Support 10 teleophthalmology camps – Rs. 2,00,000


The teleophthalmology camp ensures that good quality spectacles at a subsidized rate are given to poor patients.At our teleophthalmology camps, we provide patients with well-framed and quality spectacles which cost Rs. 350 for adults and Rs 600 for children.Any amount will help us in providing free spectacles for poor patients.

Support spectacles for 5 patients – Rs. 1,750
Support spectacles for 50 patients – Rs. 17,500
Support spectacles for 100 patients – Rs. 35,000
