SETU Gramin Jyoti

Early Detection and Prevention of Blindness

In most cases, blindness can be prevented by early detection. To prevent blindness by early detection, NAB - Meerut is proud to launch the project "Setu Gramin Jyoti".

Schools of rural areas were approaced to organize eye testing of children up to 12 years of age. The pilot project was launched at Sri Mallu Singh Arya Kanya Pathshala at Mator Daurala. A total of 132 girls were screened by a trained optician and 3 of them were found in need of spectacles. One girl definitely needed further help and was given the reference of Head of Opthalmology Dept., Meerut Medical College, Dr. Alka Gupta (member of executive council NAB Meerut).

Every week since Dec'12, NAB Meerut has organized free Eye Screening Camps at various villages around Meerut. These camps have received an overwhelming response and will further the cause of prevention and early detection of blindness.
