This journey of establishing credible and updated vision centres started in 2008 with support under the India Consortium Grant of Seeing is Believing and has continuously expanded over the years. This expansion has been possible due to the support of many partners.

Currently, the programme is working on to expanding to 20 more locations by 2022.
A new component of door to door screening has now been incorporated into the vision centre model. Village level workers attached to vision centre’s are now doing door to door surveys using a modern app that helps us to (1) set a baseline for requirement of eye care services (2) create awareness (3) also monitor uptake of services.
Each vision centre is equipped with state –of-the- art equipment for a primary eye care examination and is staffed by a vision technician (usually a graduate of Dr.Shroff’s COP course) and an attendant. Each vision centre is also equipped with a software for managing data and in some locations even tele-medicine .
In 2019-20, the network saw 105000 patients and facilitated 8000 sight restoring surgeries.
