      Do you know ?
      • Cornea is the clear tissue covering the front of the eye.
      • If the cornea becomes cloudy because of any disease, injury, infection or poor nutrition, vision is dramatically reduced or lost.
      • Corneal blindness can be treated by replacing the damaged cornea by a healthy donated human cornea. The human cornea can be procured through Eye Donation only.
      • Corneal blindness affects mainly children and young adults who have a long life ahead of them.
      • Though we have trained, highly qualified surgeons and hospital facilities to do the transplant, we do not have enough eye tissues to do the surgery.
      • Approximately 11 lakh blind population of our country are waiting for corneal transplantation and approximately 25,000 new cases are being reported.
      • One eye donation can give sight to two corneally blind persons.
