Some life-changing projects of the Foundation are:

Rashtriya Netra Yagna: Our Flagship Project

Rashtriya Netra Yagna is an enduring initiative of the Vision Foundation of India that has been in continuance since 2015. Vision Foundation of India collaborates with charitable eye hospitals at pan India level under the and financially supports these organizations to conduct free eye surgeries. The project is on course to perform 1.1 million surgeries by year 2026.

Mumbai Urban Slum Eye Care (MUSE)

For those living in slums, eye check-ups and treatment is unaffordable. Due to this, they tend to ignore even the most severe problems related to eye health. Considering this, Vision Foundation of India in association with Society of Promotion of Area Research Centre (SPARC) launched a unique project Mumbai Urban Slum Eyecare (MUSE). The project provides accessible and quality eyecare services to the marginalised population residing in the slums of Mumbai.

Sugar n Sight (National Diabetic Retinopathy Project)

Vision Foundation of India launched Project 'Sugar n Sight' - A National Diabetic Retinopathy Project. This project of Vision Foundation will be taking care of the screening of diabetics all across the country and assessing their eye sight for diabetic retinopathy through the use of Tele Medicine & Artificial Intelligence. The treatment including laser, eye injections or eye surgery will be provided free of cost to the under privileged. The project targets to screen 25,00,000 patients in a span of 6 years.

Primary Rural Vision Care Centres

This concept was to improve eye care for the rural population, mainly targeting individuals with cataract. The Foundation reaches out to rural parts making vision accessible to the remotest parts of the country. VFI has relentlessly been serving the rural areas in Manor and Shahpur districts covering many other villages in the surrounding areas and other districts too.

Bal Drishti

‘Vision’ is very critical to the overall development of a child and good vision gives proper inputs to the brain. Any interruption in the vision in the formative years not only impairs vision but also affects the brain and results in overall delay in development. Considering this, the Foundation conducts school screening camps at different municipal and private schools across India. Eye ailments are then medically treated by the Foundation.

Police Jyoti

Launched in 2005 by the Commissioner of Police Mr. A.N. Roy for the benefit of Mumbai Police, the Foundation organizes camps at the base hospital or at various police stations. A special OPD session for the serving the police and their family is available at the base hospital. Police personnel are operated free of cost and their family embers are treated at a highly subsidized rates.

Mobile Eye Clinic Through Mobile Van

Lack of medical facilities and proper infrastructure makes it difficult for people in remote villages to reach even a Rural Centre. Hence the Foundation has developed a unique outreach program, whereby our infrastructure and expertise is made available to such people at their doorsteps.

Navnit Shah Eye Bank

Navnit Shah Eye Bank is a not for profit initiative by VFI that is committed to the noble cause of eye donations since its inception in 2000. It mainly works for awareness of eye donation and collection of corneal tissues from donors.
