Donate Now

Your generous donation to IVI will not only help stop ‘preventable’ blindness, particularly among children from underprivileged communities, but also help strengthen the eye care delivery infrastructure in India.

Uncorrected refractive error remains a major cause of avoidable vision impairment and the second most common cause of blindness in India. Visual impairment caused by this issue is preventable or treatable, usually through a simple pair of glasses.

Your contribution will help meet the challenge of reversing the rather grim eye care situation for our country, currently ranking among countries with the highest number of visually impaired population.

You could also donate towards a range of other IVI initiatives in the following key areas:

› Capacity building
› Leadership initiatives
› Optometry Education & Research
› Creating awareness about eye care
› Vision screening & provision of glasses

For details about IVI initiatives you wish to support, please email your queries to ivi@indiavisioninstitute.org

Eye See & I Learn

There is a direct correlation between vision and productivity among adults as also between vision and school performance among children. It is estimated that over 10 crore Indians do not have a pair of spectacles because of financial and access reasons. 

This campaign will specifically target children because educated and skilled children will enable India to realize its demographic dividend. 

For as little as Rs.500, which is what it costs to test and purchase a pair of spectacles, YOU can help a child see better, study better, do better in school and become an active contributor to India’s growth.

All donations shall qualify for deductions u/s 80 G of the Income Tax Act 1961. 
 

Eye See & I work

Your donation of Rs 500 towards a pair of spectacles will provide someone the opportunity to continue to work to their full potential and earn a decent living! 

Uncorrected refractive error remains a major cause of avoidable vision impairment and the second most common cause of blindness in India. Visual impairment caused due to uncorrected refractive error is preventable or treatable, usually through a simple pair of spectacles. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that approximately 3.93 crore, including 16 lakh children in India, are blind or visually impaired due to uncorrected refractive error.  Equally bothering is the fact that India loses approximately 126,500 crores in lost productivity due to uncorrected refractive error.

Lead the change with us to prevent avoidable blindness. Support Eye See & I Work.
