Sightsavers India Research-2018

The Sunderbans Eye Health Service Strengthening Project was implemented over a five-year period by Sightsavers with funding from the Seeing is Believing (SiB) initiative. The project was designed to contribute towards the reduction of avoidable visual impairment in the Sunderbans area of West Bengal, India. A total of 17 Vision Centres have been established in the project area to provide refraction and spectacles at a subsidised rate. As part of the project, eye screening of school children was also conducted, and free spectacles were dispensed to the children diagnosed with refractive error.
