LVPEI is currently working closely with the Mumbai-based Shantilal Shanghvi Foundation to build the city’s first not-for-profit eye institute that would offer quality patient care with vocational education, translational research, and public health.

In collaboration with SEVA Foundation’s Global Sight Initiative, built capacity of 14 partner hospitals - analysing the challenges they are facing in their integral functions such as supply chain management, quality maintenance, financial sustainability, and demand generation, and helping them devise strategies to overcome those challenges for better performance.

In our constant endeavour to make primary eye care accessible and affordable for all across the country, helped three of our partner centres to setup Vision Centres in remote locations where they were much needed - Ramban district, Jammu and Kashmir (KLSM Rotary Eye Hospital); Sayla district, Rajasthan (GHIO Abu Eye Hospital) and Bidar district, Karnataka (Velemegna Good news Society).

After a detailed needs assessment, enrolled eight partner hospitals in ‘Super Vision’ program to help them establish primary eye care services in their catchment areas.

Educational Hubs

LVPEI is supporting five hospitals in India, courtesy Standard Chartered Bank, to upgrade them as Educational Hubs. These hospitals will become important training centres in their respective states for eye care personnel across all cadres. Additionally, LVPEI also has six hubs in its areas of operation.
