Aravind Eye Care System

Vision: elim­i­nate need­less blindness.

Founded in 1976 by Dr. G. Venkataswamy with the mis­sion to elim­i­nate need­less blind­ness, Aravind is the largest and most pro­duc­tive eye care facil­ity in the world. Tak­ing its com­pas­sion­ate ser­vices to the doorstep of rural India, Aravind’s stun­ningly effec­tive strate­gies vaulted bar­ri­ers of dis­tance, poverty and igno­rance to cre­ate a self-sustaining sys­tem. From April 2009 to March 2010, includ­ing the work done in the Man­aged Eye Hos­pi­tals, over 2.5million out patients were treated and over 300,000 surg­eries were performed.
