SAPNA began to provide high quality eye-care to the underserved rural areas of Alwar from 2007 in partnership with Delhi based Venu Eye Institute and Research Centre. Its community optometric and ophthalmology projects have been highly successful. Its’ Eye-Camps address the causes of diminished vision: cataract, glaucoma, age-related degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, trachoma, corneal opacities and uncorrected refractive errors. The Camps are held on the 2nd Friday of every month. Approximately 300 people are screened, several are given free medicines and glasses, while a few identified for sight-restoring surgeries.
In 2010, a Vision Centre was set up at Vijay Mandir. This was followed by the construction of Mahatma Gandhi Netralaya-a leading-edge eye-hospital near Vijay Mandir-that became operational in 2017-18. The state-of-the-art hospital, built on an area of 9355 sq ft donated by Ms Prabha Devi, was built with the CSR support of Coal India and India Potash Ltd. By 2019-20 SAPNA handled 11486 cataract surgeries and revolutionized the access to quality eye-care in the region.
