Have You Pledged Your Eyes ? Give Someone A Gift Of Sight


I am a proud eye donor . Are you?

Watch This

India has an estimated  15 million blind people out of these 4.6 million people have corneal blindness that is curable through corneal transplantation made possible by eye donation.

If the present trend continues, it is expected that the number of corneal blind people in India will increase to 8.4 million in 2010 and 10.6 million by 2020. Of these at least 3 million can be benefited by corneal transplantation. Thus, to effectively meet the ever-growing demand, we need around 150,000 corneal transplants to be performed every year. However, the current supply is only 22000 corneas per year.

National Eye Bank ]

I pledged to donate my eyes long back and now my kids are ready to pledge theirs. I request my readers to come forward and  go to the nearest eye-bank or sign a pledge online to give a gift of sight to someone. Think about it… two people will be able to see the beautiful world once again with your eyes.

Make your children , your family aware of the noble cause so that they can fulfill your wish after your death. Always Carry your eye donor card with you. Start a movement . Take that first step .
