In case of a demise and as per the person’s wish to donate eyes, please call us on 9480588394 or 7022161111. We will help you in reaching out to the eye bank in your location. We have the access to information of eye banks located across India.

Since we are a Non – Government organization, our operations are carried out by the generous donations made by people and companies. Hence, we humbly request the visitors to the site to make Online Donations to NGO and join us in achieving the goal of eradicating corneal blindness.

The donated money will be used to fund Eye Transplant Surgeries and creating awareness for eye donations. The operational expenses are minimal since at VisionMate Foundation, we handle most of the day to day activities through Online and Phone medium.

 

THE PROBLEM

It is estimated that currently there are 45 million individuals worldwide who are bilaterally blind and another 135 million that have severely impaired vision in both eyes (Source: WHO). The fact that there are 180 million people in the world today who are in some way severely visually disabled is an unacceptable problem. In a study it is estimated that nearly 4.9 million people suffer from corneal blindness and are looking for eye donations across the world and with a significant demand in India as well. (Source: The National Center for Biotechnology Information, Indian Journal of Ophthalmology).

In India as many as 1.1 million people suffer from Corneal Blindness (Source: Eye Banks Association of India) and can be benefited from eye transplantation. Corneal blindness is a major cause of blindness worldwide, next to cataract. The current transplantation scale is minimal in India which is approximately 28000. (Source: Eye Banks Association Of India ) as compared to the demand for the same. In fulfilling the need of these individuals we aim to campaign for eye donations. The initiative is unique in a sense that we are using web application software platform and networking concepts to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the current campaigning system by eye banks, eye hospitals and associations in India.

THE SOLUTION

The platform to campaign for the initiative is through a web application platform where  campaigners are invited to register to campaign for eye donations among their social and professional network. The campaigning procedure is automated where eye pledge registrations happens through driving visitors to the registry (website platform) via various sources.

People willing to be a donor but do not want to be a volunteer for campaigning can also register / pledge and data will be maintained on the software platform without any fee. The donations collected from companies through the CSR initiatives, Grants and others sources are the sources of funds for Campaigning, Maintaining the software platform and eye transplant surgeries.

KEY BENEFITS

Some of the salient features of the Eye Donation site are:

• VisionMate Foundation has contact information of Eye Banks located across India, which makes it possible to coordinate with the nearest eye bank for a person to reach in case of eye donation.
