Home / About Sankara Nethralaya

Sankara Nethralaya, a not-for-profit charitable hospital, embarked on a relentless journey on September 6, 1978 to provide world-class tertiary eye care in India. Its growth since then has been phenomenal — thanks to the unconditional and generous support received from all quarters of society.

Today, we have over 80 eye care professionals examining around 1,500 patients and performing around 125 surgeries a day.

At the heart of every endeavour of Sankara Nethralaya is a strong focus and emphasis on community service, which has been vehemently pursued over the years. The community service initiatives include conducting eye-camps in rural areas, conducting free surgeries to those with an income of less than Rs. 7,000 per month, through the Jaslok Community Ophthalmic Centre, and successfully and relentlessly taking mobile tele-ophthalmology benefits to the door steps of the poor in rural India. All of this has been possible due to the tremendous support that we have received from organizations and individuals over the years.

About 50 % of the Out-Patient Department and 35 % of the surgeries are done free of cost to the underprivileged. Donations received have helped to cater to the medical and post-operative needs of indigent patients.

Thank you for visiting supportsankaranethralaya and we are humbled by the munificent and absolute support given to us in pursuing our goal.

We look forward to this continued support from you.
