Mobile Primary Eye Health Bus for Tulsi Chanrai Eye Hospital

In November 2018, Wen Giving Foundation supported a Mobile Ophthalmic Bus to promote good eye health and the eradication of avoidable blindness in 7 districts of Northern Maharashtra. The bus serves a population of 1.7 million and screens 36,000 people annually.

The bus is manned by skilled Allied Ophthalmic Personnel from the Tulsi Chanrai Eye Hospital. It is fitted with state-of-the-art ophthalmic equipment that screens for refractive error and cataract as well as other emerging eye conditions such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. Screened patients that require spectacles or surgery are referred to the Tulsi Chanrai Eye Hospital in Nasik.
