“Cataract Surgery is the single most cost-effective surgical intervention in the world”

Gauhati Lions Eye Hospital, a project of Lions Club of Gauhati, has been in the dedicated service of the community since 1996. Hundreds of free cataract surgeries for the poor and needy persons have been performed. With a little effort by a benelovent person, a poor and needy blind person will be able to see this beautiful world. Project - “Drishti Daan” - a project of Lions Club of Gauhati, offers an opportunity to people ‘who have’ to provide ‘Drishti’ or ‘Vision’ - the great gift of God, to those ‘who have not’

Under this project one can donate a sum of Rs. 1,100 (Rupees one thousand and one hundred) only for the humanitarian cause of restoring the sight of a poor and needy person by performing a cataract surgery. As such, the subsidised rate of a surgery at our Eye Hospital is Rs.3200/- . But on receipt of this donation ‘Drishti Daan’ of Rs.1100/-, the hospital will make good the balance amout of Rs. 2100/- from other sources and perform the cataract surgery absolutely free of cost.
