World Sight Day Awards

Despite our gained knowledge, sadly, our efforts are not always successful but we have few eminent persons amidst us who have understood their difficulties, recognised their abilities and learn how to co-operate and communicate with them in a social as well as hospital environment. They are born with an ability to change someone’s eyes and today there are heroes for many people around the world. We have instituted awards to honour people who have been diligently working day and night towards the betterment of the Visually Challenged. This year 2014 WORLD SIGHT DAY AWARDS were given to:
