Tackling Corneal Blindness

Our Strategy to Overcome the Issue

The Problem

Corneal blindness affects nearly 4.9 million people globally, with a significant demand for eye donations in India. In India alone, approximately 1.1 million individuals suffer from corneal blindness, making it the second leading cause of blindness after cataracts (Source: Eye Banks Association of India). Despite the urgent need, the current rate of eye donations in India is only about 28,000 per year (Source: Eye Banks Association of India).

This disparity between demand and supply leads to a long waiting list for corneal transplants, leaving many individuals without the chance to regain their sight. Furthermore, the lack of awareness and misinformation about eye donation contribute to the low donation rates. In fulfilling the need of these deprived populations, we aim to campaign for eye donations. Our initiative is unique as we use digital marketing concepts to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the current campaigning system by eye banks, eye hospitals, and associations in India.

Our Solution

  • Extensive Network: We work with around 300 eye banks registered with the Eye Banks Association of India (EBAI) and an additional 400 independent eye banks.
  • Focused Campaigns: Eye banks can concentrate on their core activities while we handle awareness campaigns.
  • Infrastructure Support: We enhance the existing infrastructure of eye banks and hospitals to improve their effectiveness.
  • Digital Marketing: Our campaigns leverage digital marketing and technology to raise awareness about eye donations.
  • Comprehensive Coverage: Unlike traditional campaigns that focus on individual facilities, we create widespread awareness across multiple eye banks and hospitals.
  • Training and Support: We train eye banks and hospitals to use Google Places, helping them become easily discoverable as the nearest eye banks.
  • Nationwide Campaigns: We run digital campaigns to inform people about the importance of eye donations and how to find nearby eye banks via Google Maps.
  • Efficient Routing: Eye donation inquiries are directly routed to the nearest eye banks through Google Listings, ensuring prompt action.
  • Awareness and Technology Integration: We create awareness on behalf of all eye banks in India and help them use digital technologies to receive eye donation inquiries effectively.
