When Operation Eyesight became partners with the Vision Welfare Society, it was the only eye care service for some 15 million people in the district, the majority of whom were refugees from Bangladesh after the war in 1971.
Operation Eyesight supported eye camps to examine thousands of individuals for eye infections and diseases. A similar process was also performed in schools. Those diagnosed were later treated at surgery camps.
