ROTARY SUNDAR LAL EYE HOSPITAL CHANDAUSI, UTTAR PRADESH STATE

The only hospital within 100 km of Chandausi, the local Rotary Club established Sundar Lal in 1985, and is still active in managing and running the facility. The hospital provides eye care to the poor, providing services like eye exams, surgical counselling, refraction and prescription eyeglasses, cataract surgery, and glaucoma diagnosis, treatment and surgery. It also provides community ophthalmology screening, such as school screenings, community outreach screenings and awareness programs. Operation Eyesight began supporting the Club in 1982, and in 2007 helped renovate a new operating theatre, the former one having proved inadequate to cope with the volume of surgeries being carried out by the hospital. The new theatre has doubled the space available for patient care and teaching purposes.
