WHO WE ARE

At 8 million, India houses the 2nd highest number of blind people in the world. 80% of blindness in India is because of cataract and uncorrected refractive errors.

The reasons behind avoidable blindness run deeper than the eye diseases that cause them. They result from – and lead to – poverty, and are often accompanied by social exclusion and early death.

Sight For All Foundation was set up by Dr. Sanjiv Gupta with the belief that eradicating avoidable blindness enhances productivity and leads to social and economic equality if the underprivileged are able to access the right treatment at the right time.

When someone’s sight is restored, it gives people the chance for a better life. They’re able to work, go to school and provide for their families. Dr. Sanjiv believed that everyone, no matter whether they were rich or poor, had the right to affordable eye care.

Sight For All Foundation is on a mission to eliminate avoidable blindness to a level that it ceases to be a public health problem for our citizens residing in our 626 districts in India. Sight for All Foundation aims to achieve this through extending the reach of equitable and quality medical and surgical eye care services to the poor and needy – through active community involvement, screening camps and surgical services. All surgeries are performed with state-of-the-art infrastructure, special importance being given to sterility and quality.

At SFAF, community service is not just helping the underprivileged but also roping in community to contribute to our endeavours.

Since its inception in 2017, SFAF has conducted 23 eye screening camps, examined 2917 patients, of which 138 have been operated free of cost. SFAF is working tirelessly to help people in India come out of avoidable blindness.

CATARACT

Cataract is a disease of the lens in our eye when it gets opacified or hazy causing loss of vision. It is the clouding of the eye’s lens – the part of the eye responsible for focusing light and producing clear, sharp images.

DIABETIC RETINOPATHY

People with diabetes can have an eye disease called diabetic retinopathy. This is when high blood sugar levels cause damage to blood vessels in the retina. These blood vessels can swell and leak.

GLAUCOMA

Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the front part of your eye. That extra fluid increases the pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve.

REFRACTIVE ERRORS

In refractive disorders (refractive errors), light rays entering the eye are not focused on the retina, causing blurred or impaired vision.

Annual Month of Giving

Blindness affect millions around the globe. Diseases that kill the potential in children and adults alike. It doesn’t need to be so.

In 80% of the cases in both diseases, medical science has the cure. Yet, it is just poverty that ensures that millions remain deprived of the beauty of sight and hearing that we take for granted. We invite you to read the stories of some of the lives that we have had the honour of impacting.

Your smallest contribution can be the biggest difference in someone else’s life.

Enable us to make a difference to many more such lives.
