      Community Outreach Program
      Free Eye Checkup Camps
      72% of the total population in Raigad district stays in Rural area. Out of which 42% population is below poverty line. Medical facilities are so inadequate in the rural area of Raigad District that patients staying in remote areas have to travel many kilometers to avail general medical facilities.

      Eye care is really neglected. Lack of awareness and knowledge about eye care adds to the problems in eye care. With the mission of reaching out these unreachables, Laxmi Eye Institute started community outreach program even before its official inception of a Trust, in the year 1996. A team of Medial & Paramedical Experts visits remote places where eye care facility is not available, examine the patients with eye problems, and treat them wherever possible. Patients who need further treatment like surgeries are transported by our own bus to our base hospital at Panvel, necessary treatment/ surgery is performed and they are dropped back to their respective villages.

      The trust takes care of their stay and food till they are admitted in hospital. The total activity is totally free of cost to patients. Till today through more than 1000 eye checkup camps the Trust was able to perform more than 26000 free cataract surgeries.

      Primary Eye Care Centers
      To support these outreach activities the Trust has started Primary Eye Care Centers, one at Mahad and another at Karjat. Patients within the vicinity of this area can avail the facility of quality eye care and need not travel all the way to Panvel for small eye problems and even for post-operative follow up.

      Laxmi Charitable Trust now has an ambitious project of developing such 6 primary eye care centers at various places in Raigad district within a span of one year.
