NEW DELHI: Keeping to its commitment to give the gift of sight to many, Eli India, part of Eli Global, a diversified information and financial services group, successfully held their regular eye care camps in the national capital region (NCR).
Patients with severe Cataract are examined and treated by skilled doctors at the eye camp. This endeavor is an extension of Eli’s major presence in ophthalmology through the Eye care leaders.
The latest eye care camp — the seventh since this process began in November, 2016 — was held at Village Gudrana, Palwal, Haryana. Elderly and other patients thronged the center for their examination by doctors; and subsequent surgery. Patients were provided free medication where necessary, and dispensed spectacles.
With over 7 camps held till date, Eli has already touched the lives of over 3,000 underprivileged people, with 92 patients being operated, 1,533 getting spectacles, and the rest getting free medical treatment for their eyes. This being just early days, Eli India is committed to take this initiative forward, spread it across other parts of the country and benefit as many patients as possible in future.
Speaking on the occasion, Ajay Gupta, Country Head and President, Eli India, said, “We are committed to improve the lives of the people in our society. Cataract blindness is one of the largest causes of blindness in the country, that is why we have focused on it and do our bit in making whatever impact we can in our capacity.”
