Eye donation is the need of the hour

Know why eye donation is important.

Donating an eye is equivalent to being the vision for someone, providing a ray of light in their darkness. Over 15 million people in India are blinded and 75% out of which suffer from corneal blindness could have regained their visions only if the crisis of donors and myths of donation were avoidable.

Sankara Eye Foundation organised a felicitation programme of the sight ambassadors. The 33rd Eye Donation Fortnight was celebrated to encourage more donors to come up which in turn lights up the lives of many patients in need.

The discussion revolves around the learning and understanding of the social barriers regarding eye donation and how the Heroes without capes are bringing hope in the lives of many. Also involving the interaction with the recipient beneficiaries and getting an insight about the transformation after the donation.

Among the eminent guests, renowned classical dancer/movie actress Vidhushi Yamuna Srinidhi, expressed "Every day we come across so many heroes in disguise, who help the less privileged ones in various ways. I know it is certainly the most elevating feeling to gift an organ. Isn't it an immense feeling to be the eyesight for a person in need. I request everyone present here to acknowledge the importance of donation and come forward to make a huge difference."
