The prevalence of curable blindness in India is one of the highest in the world. Blindness can have a detrimental effect on an individual’s life and there is a strong association between blindness and poverty.

Sankara seeks to address this problem by providing high quality, equitable and affordable eye care to the rural poor in India. Founded in 1977 by Dr. R.V Ramani and Dr. Radha Ramani, Sankara has expanded into 10 Eye Hospitals located in 7 States. Since its inception, Sankara has performed over 2 million sight restoring surgeries and has become one of the major eye care providers in India.
