CHAIRMAN'S MESSAGE
If the Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital would have been a person, then it would have been my GURU - Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya. I thank him for giving me the strength and conviction to use my old body but young mind for the benefit of the blind patient in Bihar. I have always maintained that my Guru is my true treasure – it is he who powers this fantastic project amidst all adversities.

I am gratified to see the huge number of surgeries the hospital does - but the most important aspect has been the quality attached with these surgical numbers. After all we are supposed to deliver AKHAND JYOTI (literally meaning ETERNAL LIGHT).

Our theory of change is that every person has the right to move from DARKNESS to LIGHT and from IGNORANCE to KNOWLEDGE – restore sight, light up the souland help people improve their quality of life and enable them to overcome ignorance, illiteracy and ultimately poverty.

I am grateful to all our friends, donors and supporters who have time and again come forward to repose trust in us – it is their unflinching faith in what we do and how we do that played a great part in restoring sight to more people from rural Bihar every year. I pray to Gurudev for their well-being and success.

However there is still a lot of work to be done. Our efforts in the next 7-8 years will determine the size of the backlog of blindness in Bihar. I request more people to support us in this cause and make Bihar blindness free. I take solace from the Gayatri Mantra and urge people to understand and follow it – our world then will be a much better place to live in.

AJEH JOURNEY

In December 2005, a journey called AKHAND JYOTI EYE HOSPITAL (AJEH) started with the dream to fight curable blindness in Bihar, one of the most backward states of India and where widespread poverty, rampant illiteracy and poor infrastructure made the task much more daunting. Resources were limited, but determination was high. The Gayatri temple complex at village Mastichak in western Bihar was small and not considered ideal for an eye hospital. Adding to it, the facts that the location was in a remote village and electricity was non-existent; we needed to work out of our skins to succeed. The best possible remodelling was done to ensure quality service delivery with high levels of safety. A dedicated team slogged it day-in and day-out to restore sight to over 10,000 people in the very first year. We have now restored sight to over 270,000 of the rural mass in our first 7 years and have been able to build up a new, more ideal setup.A lot remains to be done as we keep on asking ourselves “WHY ARE WE DOING ALL THIS”.

It is our belief that every person has a right to move from DARKNESS to LIGHT, and from IGNORANCE to KNOWLEDGE. By giving sight to the eye, we would be able to restore self-respect and self-reliance; this would light up the soul and ignite the minds of such people to try and improve their quality of life by overcoming ignorance, illiteracy and ultimately poverty. We keep reminding ourselves of our VISION & MISSION and continue to draw inspiration from our eternal guiding light, our Guru – Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya.Looking back, it seems unbelievable that we completed 10,000 successful, sight restoring surgeries in the very first year. It seemed a dream – which was translated into reality by a dedicated, passionate and visionary team of 27 individuals. Individuals who are now the pillars of Eastern India’s most effective eye hospital. Effectiveness which has now given rise to the largest eye hospital in Eastern India doing more than 65,000 surgeries annually.

Personalised spectacles services
suitable for every eye and pocket
Refractive error is the single largest cause of blindness after cataract – more so in the rural areas where people are not used to wearing spectacles. A simple refraction procedure and a tailor made glass is all it requires to give great vision. For us spectacles are not a lifestyle product but a medical necessity – therefore for us every person ecsyork needing a spectacle is a patient rather than a consumer. Every unit of the hospital provides high quality optical services suitable for every budget – high quality frames and lenses and less that one third of the market prices. The hospital makes and fits all its spectacles in-house through its own surfacing and fitting labs, thereby ensuring that every glass is tailor made to suit the needs of the patient. Young, old or child – every design and shape matching your face and need is available at all our centres.
The services available for opticals and spectacles are:
  • Own surfacing and fitting labs
  • Highly trained refractionists
  • Retinoscopy, autorefractometry
    and pupillometry services
  • Plastic lenses
  • UV blocking sunglasses
  • Contact lens
  • Low vision aids

WORKING WHERE IT REALLY MATTERS
ONE OF THE MILLION - A woman with bilateral cataract.
The cataract in both eyes literally screams out seeking intervention.

In 2007 it was estimated that the number of people suffering from curable blindness in Bihar was a little over 1 million with cataract being the major culprit, accounting for 83% of such cases. With a mismatch between demand and supply, the needs of the 100,000 people who add up yearly to the blindness bracket (due to deteriorating sight in both eyes) were barely met, let alone the backlog of 1 million already existing.

The generic barriers of illiteracy, poverty and poor infrastructure compounded the problem; more specifically, the inability to pay, shortage of eye surgeons and lack of access to quality eye care facilities ensured that Bihar had the lowest Cataract Surgical Coverage (CSC). It implied that less than half the people needing cataract surgery could actually access the surgical services. In 2010, a study commissioned jointly by several institutes in India found out that India, as a whole, may not be able to achieve its goal of eliminating the backlog of blindness in the country by 2020, despite being a signatory to the global platform VISION 2020 – THE RIGHT TO SIGHT. Two major concerns cited were the lack of geographic focus (inability to concentrate efforts in the “blind” pockets, e.g. Bihar & Orissa) and the lack of priority for bilaterally blind patients (in the existing surgical capacity).
Accessibility, affordability, erratic quality and poor awareness levels were issues needed to be addressed to tackle the blindness conundrum in the state.


The backlog of blindness in Bihar continues to exist and be a cause for concern:

  • Despite a national programme (National Programme for Control of Blindness) and the revamp of the Health system in India, specifically the NRHM (National Rural Health Mission).
  • Despite 1700 eye surgeons in the state, over 10 eye hospitals in Nepal (on the Nepal Bihar border), 38 district hospitals and 2 other NGO eye hospitals.
  • Despite the presence of over 10 INGOs (International NGOs) in the country who work specifically in eye care.
AKHAND JYOTI EYE HOSPITAL (AJEH) is the most effective eye hospital in Bihar working to eradicate blindness from the state and as a result reduce poverty. We choose to target the poor, blind patient from rural Bihar rather than seek the affluent patients in towns of the state. This focused approach on the blind patient has made us the largest eye hospital in Eastern India, and in less than 6 years, we have shown that by sticking to our primary aim of eradicating blindness, we can also:
  • Build up a successful teaching eye hospital in the rural heartland.
  • Educate and train girls from rural Bihar to become highly skilled ophthalmic personnel at the hospital.
  • Improve the socio-economic level of entire communities across Bihar by:
    • Giving sight
    • Enabling people to regain their earning capacity
    • Working actively to provide equal opportunities to girls
    • Identifying and grooming talent at the village level
    • Providing jobs
    • Enhancing a sense of community
Our theory of change is that every person has the right to move from DARKNESS to LIGHT and from IGNORANCE to KNOWLEDGE - restoring sight will help people improve their quality of life and enable them to overcome ignorance, illiteracy & ultimately, poverty. We have been able to make significant progress despite the fact that we still do not have access to mains electricity.
Our strategic choices have been guided by the sacrosanct vision we have - blind free Bihar by 2020. While following an avowed pledge like this, we do bind ourselves - but that is precisely what we set out to do in the first place.
APPROACH TOWARDS BLINDNESS

A woman with bilateral cataract. The WHO defines blindness as the inability to see clearly, without aid, from a distance of 3 metres or less in the better eye. Treatment provided to this woman would actually mean that a hospital is CURING blindness and eliminating the backlog in the state.

We have been able to crack the last two drawbacks – a fantastic team of skilled eye surgeons is on our rolls and our innovative outreach programs provide access to the rural mass to eye care services across 14 districts in Bihar.

The real limiting factor is the shortage of
funds for free eye surgeries - as a result
of poverty, more than 45 million people
in Bihar live on less than $1 a day.
That is the reason we seek funds for free
surgeries.

We choose NOT TO BE SUSTAINABLE – the quest for sustainability has rendered eye care programs in Bihar to be ineffective in tackling the blindness issue. If sustainability would have been a core driver for us, we could attain it tomorrow – by changing focus from the rural blind and by doing 20,000 surgeries, half of it free, we could generate enough surplus to match corporate counterparts in the affluent cities. We choose not to take this easy path as we do not want to abandon the soul of the hospital and deviate from our avowed vision.

Of course we will be sustainable, but only after our vision is met by the year 2020. Therefore, we seek finite support – funds for free surgery till the backlog of
blindness in the state is
eliminated by the year
2020.
So do we not treat patients who can pay? Yes we definitely do – affluent patients can avail of our high quality, high end services which are one of the best in the state. The paying patient is not sought out – they walk-in and avail of our services and aid us to generate surplus to help us do more free surgeries.
We aim to cover the balance 16 under-served and neglected areas of the entire state through our outreach team and volunteers.
We strive to find out and treat patients like the woman in the given picture – it is only then we can claim that we are eliminating blindness from one of India’s poorest states, Bihar. Over the last 4 years, of the total surgeries done by us, whether free or paying, at least 88% belong to the blind category as defined by the WHO.
UNIQUE OUTREACH PROGRAMME
UTTER CHAOS AT THE CAMP SITE -
No problem, it is something which
we really like - an opportunity for our team to screen the blind.

WHAT IS THE
CRUCIAL
MOTIVATOR WHICH
MOBILISES OUR TEAM
TO REACH THE UNREACHABLE?
The huge number of people blind. As most of our 50 outreach staff and 700 volunteers are drawn from the local community itself, they can readily empathize with the blind. At some point of time either a relative, friend or neighbour had been blind – that is why they understand the trauma better.

They work in boxes of 10 square kms – ensuring that they go to each house with a 3 metre tape and find out the person who needs help the most – the blind patient. This patient is earmarked and asked to report to the nearby eye screening camp of the hospital so that his/her evaluation is done by our medical team. At the campsite, the blind patient is prioritized and is sent to the hospital for surgery by the hospital / local volunteer arranged bus.

The long wait is over, finally an
eyecare team arrives in their village
There is a huge difference between doing 67,000 odd surgeries from 14 districts and from two districts alone (which can be easily be done) – in the first case the outreach cost is higher, and requires more manpower. However, as our focus is the blind patient, we keep shifting 10 kms every 3 months or so – this shifting approach helps us prioritize our surgical capacity in favour of the blind patient.
We avoid areas where service is already available and the main towns – most of the outreach and screening is concentrated in the villages.
Combined Outreach
QUALITY IN THE RURAL HEARTLAND
In a medical set-up, quantity of surgeries has no meaning if they are not accompanied by high levels of clinical quality and safety. Clinical quality is at the heart of every surgery done at the hospital and even the free surgeries are done by the latest SICS (Small Incision Cataract Surgery) technique – a sutureless technique which enables the patient to return back to work in 15 days.
The paying patients can opt for the latest Phacoemulsification / Phaco method of surgery – the most advanced technique available today where a patient can attend office in 2 days.
The prominent base of clinical service at AJEH is the quick adaptation of newer technologies and make them affordable to the general public. An example is the high volumes of topical phaco surgeries we do across the centers of the hospital ‐ enabling the patient to just use our day care facilities and return back home a few hours after surgery. Patients can also avail of the Micro Incision Phaco surgery which has several advantages over routine phaco surgeries. The use of the most advanced OZIL technology with the help of INFINITI phaco machine has made cataract surgeries safer, better and more predictive. AJEH is happy to pass on all these benefits to the public ‐ thereby making technology and quality the cornerstones of patient service at the hospital. Quality of service at AJEH is further uplifted by the presence of highly skilled eye surgeons and the availability of state-of-the-art equipments.
The patients in turn repose their trust and faith in us ‐ this has been the main reason for the fantastic growth of the hospital and it’s work in eye care. In fact, the high levels of clinical quality makes the location of our hospitals redundant – after all every eye, irrespective of the capacity to pay, deserves the best possible surgical capability.
 
Combined Quality -
Clinical quality is our key differentiator
THINKING OUT OF THE BOX
Chandradeo Gupta, is a PROTECTOR OF SIGHT, an unique initiative where patients, previously blind, and after their surgery, seek out more blind patients from vilages.
 
Innovation has been the key driver of success of the hospital in environments that have been tough to say the least – absence of electricity, remote locations, high levels of poverty & illiteracy and lack of supporting infrastructure. The marriage of clinical quality and managerial expertise has been instrumental in putting our ideas into action. In fact compassion, innovation and professional management have been the core drivers of growth. Our strategic choices have been guided by the sacrosanct vision we all have ‐ blind free Bihar by 2020. While following an avowed pledge like this, we do bind ourselves ‐ but that is precisely what we set out to do in the first place.
Our employees, students and volunteers are true agents of change – they have shaped our response to the blindness conundrum in Bihar, India’s poorest state and the worst areas of blindness.
Embedding our values of COMPASSION, QUALITY, TEAMWORK & EXCELLENCE in the work culture, our doctors, employees and students have constantly delivered high quality, high volume eye surgeries. Rural locale notwithstanding, they ensure that the patient gets the same quality of surgery, if not better, you would expect at London, New York or Chennai. Alignment with the hospital’s vision, passion for the cause and the ability to constantly innovate has helped them overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Our team has the right attitude, optimum skill mix and importantly, a bias for action. That is why we have been successful despite constraints, and has given us the confidence to achieve an annual surgical output of 100,000 by the year 2015 – the stepping stone towards achieving our vision of ensuring a blind, free Bihar.
The magnitude of blindness in Bihar always meant that our outreach staff would not be able to reach every village. Two of our senior staff members devised and implemented a plan called PROTECTORS OF SIGHT (PoS), whereby our satisfied patients (especially those who were blind themselves) would act as patient motivators. PoS know how to screen the blind and send them to the hospital. All PoS meet every quarter at AJEH to discuss their work in the respective areas. So why do they it? Since they have felt the trauma of being blind, they feel it a duty to eradicate blindness. This work has given them a new goal and made their life more meaningful.
52 year old Chandradeo Gupta, a farmer from Isuapur, Bihar was blind with cataract in both eyes. Post surgery, the joy of seeing again made him take the pledge of removing curable blindness from his taluka comprising 30 villages. Through eye camps and personal meetings he sends 30 blind patients every month to AJEH for restoring their sight.
Winning the trust of patients has rewarded us with volume and revenues ‐ this trust has become the base for building up a strong brand for the future. The AJEH Learning Centre has been instrumental in scaling up the skills of our people, while at the same time it has given rise to a locally trained, ready pool of talent ‐ this would be the differentiator in the way we provide service to patients. In the next 5 years we look forward to achieving the following: Annual surgical output of 1,00,000, at least 75% free 8000 Phaco surgeries per year. Increase total bed capacity to 550 across 5 centres. Refraction and optical dispensing at the block level Clinical fellowships & DNB courses.
The Education through Football programme, an unique HR initiative, ensures that the hospital always has a ready pool of local talent to tap into.
In the next 5 years we look forward to achieving the following:

  • Annual surgical output of 1,00,000, at least 75% free
  • 8000 Phaco surgeries per year
  • Increase total bed capacity to 550 across 5 centres
  • refraction and optical dispensing at the block level
  • Clinical fellowships & DNB courses

Some patients may be required
to undergo laser treatment
LASER TREATMENT

Lasers are widely used in treating diabetic retinopathy. Lasers are formed by an intense and highly energetic beam of light. They can slow down or stop the progression of diabetic retinopathy and stabilise vision. The clinic is equipped with multiple lasers with slit lamp delivery and indirect ophthalmoscope delivery systems. Both double frequency YAG and diode laser are available for treatment of diabetic retinopathy, retinal holes, tumours, Retinopathy of Prematurity, retinal vascular diseases etc.

Some advanced tests may also need to be done

Fluorescein Angiography

This is a magnified photography of the
retina using an injectable dye. It helps in
confirming diagnosis, to decide on the
mode of treatment and evaluate the
treatment given.

Optical Coherence Tomography

OCT is used to image the retinal layers. It uses light waves to produce images of the retina, much like sound waves in USG. OCT has opened a new frontier in management of macular diseases.

Electroretinogram (ERG), Multifocal ERG, Visual Evoked Potential, ElectroOculoGram (To aid in the diagnosis of heredomacular diseases)

When light falls on the retina it stimulates different types of cells. This results in different electrical responses. Study of these responses can help us detect which cells are healthy and which are not. This is very helpful in managing patients with inherited retinal problems like retinitis pigmentosa or acquired damage from drugs etc.

Ultrasonography (3D Ultrasound) - To image the posterior segment when media is opaque

Uses sound waves of very high frequency that are sent into the eye and those reflected back are analyzed and displayed. USG is extremely useful in evaluating the posterior part of the eye when, it is not visible due to cataract or blood. It helps in making crucial surgical decisions, too.

Patients with retina problems
may need to go
for advanced tests like OCT

Some patients may need to be referred to sub-specialities in the hospital e.g. for retina, glaucoma, etc.
Retinal diseases vary widely - some are common and easily remedied, while others are rare, more difficult to diagnose and require more complex treatment. People with retinal diseases experience an array of symptoms, from specks floating in their vision to blurred or lost vision. The most common diseases handled in the clinic are diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal detachments or tears, macular holes, retinopathy of prematurity and retinitis pigmentosa.

Some patients may be required
to undergo laser treatment

Eye Examination Procedures

There are many different eye conditions; you will need to have a detailed eye examination which could take up to 2 hours, depending on the complexity of tests required. The durations indicated below are an average.

Registration (5 minutes)

On arrival you will be asked to fill in a registration card. Please give your complete permanent address with telephone number. You will be asked to take a seat until our receptionist accompanies you to your vision test. If the patient is below 15 years, you will be taken directly to the Paediatric ophthalmology.

Vision test (10 minutes)

Every patient has a simple test to check your level of vision from an eye chart.

Refraction (10 minutes)

A refractionist will place a series of lens in front of your eyes and will ask which looks clearer. This test determines your exact eye power and determines your level of sight.

Other preliminary
examinations (15 minutes)

An eye doctor will carry out an initial examination of your eyes, please advise the doctor of any previous medical history.

Vision & refraction
are routine procedures for
walk-in paying patients

Blood pressure / Eye tension / Sugar test (30 minutes)

This is only for patients aged 40 , we will check your blood pressure, intraocular pressure and a urine test for diabetes. Stages 3–5 may happen in any order depending on the patient load.

Dilation (30 minutes)

The doctor in some cases may ask the refractionist to instil eye drops in the eye. This is to make the pupils bigger in order to get a better view of the inside of the eye. It may take 30 minutes for dilation, you will be asked to wait in the waiting room during this time. You will experience blurred vision for 2 – 3 hours following dilation.

Final examination and diagnosis (5 minutes)

After all the tests have been carried out the doctor will carry out a final examination and depending on the results you will be guided to the speciality clinics.

THE BLIND PATIENT
MIRACLES DO HAPPEN
And Bhagelu Manjhi, a landless agricultural labourer from rural Bihar, is an example. On crutches since childhood (due to polio), and blind in both eyes since the last 10 years, Bhagelu performed three miracles - survive by working in the fields on crutches, work as a human bullock since he lost sight, and walk 18 miles (he had enough bus fare to travel only 22 miles from his village Lakri Nabiganj - the public bus dropped him 18 miles before the hospital as he did not have sufficient fare !!) over 3 days along with his 8 years old son Golu for getting his sight back. All that the hospital had to do was to treat him free and drop him back to his village by the hospital car. We could not free him from crutches but at least we gave his sight back - so that he earns with dignity and is able to get Golu back to school. All it took was a simple surgery done well and the support of Rs.1700 ($28) from our supporter Rajnibhai from Ahmedabad, Gujarat. But the real hero is Bhagelu - for not quitting and the will to improve his quality of life. Bhagelu is now a peon in the village school and can proudly see Golu going to school every day.
People like Rajnibhai (complete name Rajnikant Ratilal Soni) not only think of others who are less fortunate but also like to be deeply engaged in the cause they firmly believe in. Rajnibhai has pledged support for 50 surgeries every year till 2020 – he took the pledge to eliminate blindness from India’s poorest and most affected state Bihar. Rajnibhai wants to be part of history by making an impact in this gargantuan challenge and he says that when the time comes for him to go to heaven and have a cup of tea with God – he will be smiling down seeing Biharis recollect this piece of history.

SHOUTING OUT LOUD APPRECIATION FOR OUR WORK
Dr. Lucy Mathen, Ophthalmologist & Founder, Second Sight, UK
It is no surprise that AJEH produces the same quality of surgery you would expect in Chennai, Mumbai or London. Highly skilled clinicians like Dr. Poddar ensure that.
Devika Waney, Chief Administrator, Savitri Waney Charitable Trust, UK
with an AJEH patient at a village in Bihar.
The Savitri Trust aims to reach the most needy in India and it is therefore a delight to support AJEH, a truly inspiring hospital, whose compassion and ambition knows no bounds. The Trust has been supporting this wonderful hospital since 2009 and look forward to continuing a long partnership in contributing towards AJEH's mission to eradicate curable blindness in Bihar by 2020.
Ranjikant Ratilal Soni, Businessman & Gayatri Pariwar Member, Ahmedabad, India
The hospital is the true embodiment of the teachings of Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya – his blessings always remain on the hospital due to the focus on treatment of the poor and the empowerment of young girls in the process.
Dr. Geoffrey Woodruff, Emeritus Consultant Ophthalmologist, Leicester Royal Infirmary, UK & Consultant Ophthalmologist, Leicester Nuffield Health Hospital
Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital is an extra-ordinary place. The hospital is dedicated to eliminating treatable blindness. I visited the hospital in August 2012 and witnessed some 300 cataract operations being done every day with excellent results. In addition, I was privileged to participate in the rapidly developing paediatric ophthalmology service, which is beginning to transform the prospects for children with visual impairment in the region. What I saw at Akhand Jyoti is inspirational.
Ramesh Shah, Businessman, Kenya, Ramesh Shah during the hospital visit
As the Old saying goes "Where there is a Will, There is a way". A humble beginning in 2005 on top of a temple in a make-shift "Eye hospital" in Rural Bihar. The staff first went out to look for Cataract Blind and then brought them to the Hospital and restored their eyesight and also returned them home with their dignity restored as participating members of their family and society. A success story of enormous achievements. The Hospital has reduced Cataract blindness in Bihar by 20% in just 5 years, and, with God's help will help make Bihar "Cataract Free" in next 7 years...by 2020" Eradicate Cataract Blindness in Bihar and Eastern India". Heartiest Congratulations to all the 300 staff and especially to the new Young Rural Women who are now being trained to degree levels who will make the Goal achievable by 2020...AJEH is now a Teaching Medical Hospital, first in Rural India!
Dhara Patel, Gayatri Pariwar Member, New York, USA
I am lucky that I got an opportunity to contribute in such a noble purpose and that too a purpose enunciated by our Gurudev, Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya.
Dr. Sally Webber, Senior Ophthalmologist & Oculoplastic Surgeon, UK
I have had the privilege of visiting AJEH for the last two years to help teach the Ophthalmic technicians and I hope to be able to contribute every year. AJEH is an amazing place, a wonderful efficient hospital miles from any big town dedicated to the treating the blind in this really poor part of rural India. The number of patients treated is incredible, 410 cataracts were done in a single day when I was there. The staff is so dedicated and the trainee technicians in my classes were great pleasure to teach. The development of local women in all the roles in the hospital is a wonderful thing to see. I wish them all the best in reaching their goal of eradicating treatable blindness before 2020.

THE HOKEY KOKEY SONG
The amazing story of the hospital and it's girls' football academy...
The AJEH Education through Football Programme

Getting a second shot at life -

girls at the hospital's football pitch

 
SO WHAT IS COMMON TO THE HOKEY KOKEY SONG & CHRISTIANO RONALDO? Both are favourites of the girls of who play football at Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital. The programme targets girls in age group of 12 - 16 years. It aims to finally become a hub and spoke model wherein football is used as an instrument of change – targeting gender based inequalities, economic exploitation, malnutrition and child marriage, all of which afflict girls in rural Bihar; in short provide equal opportunities to them. The hub is the main eye hospital center at village Mastichak – a 350 bed tertiary care center& Eastern India’s largest eye hospital, working for eliminating blindness in India’s poorest state, Bihar. This centre trains the girls to become either a professional footballer or an optometrist or both. Women’s football in India does not offer long term career opportunities; but in case a girl makes it to the national team she will be entitled to a government job in the sports quota. To gain this opportunity, the girl needs to break in to the national team by the age of 17 years. An Optometrist is the most crucial element in an eye care setup after the eye surgeon (ophthalmologist). The course they will go through is called Bachelors in Optometry and Ophthalmic Techniques, which is a 4 years professional degree course and which can be entered after completing the Standard XII (A Levels). The course is a combination of extensive theory and practical sessions conducted by in-house ophthalmologists as well as visiting faculty. After completing the course the girl is entitled to practice as an Optometrist and will easily earn £3600 (Rs. 250,000)  per year either in a job at the hospital or by doing her own clinic – most of them actually want to work at our hospital only), which is 20 times the AVERAGE PER CAPITA INCOME OF RURAL FAMILIES IN INDIA. This will actually create wealth in the rural areas leading to a greater contribution to the country’s GDP as well as more spending power. Add the fact that they will be instrumental in helping the hospital achieve its vision of eliminating blindness from Bihar. So in either case – whether she becomes a professional footballer or not, the girl gets a guaranteed education, career and livelihood. The girls reside in the fully fledged separate girls hostel in the hospital campus. The spoke are girl schools in the most backward areas of the state. The concept is to introduce two periods of football (of 45 min each) every week whereby girls between 10 years to 15 years are exposed to football as a sport. These periods are conducted by the local physical education teacher who has been trained by our full time football coach. Once the interest level develops and the girls want to be part of the programme fulltime, we select such girls to join full time and reside in our hospital campus at Mastichak. The entire cost of her education, living and training is taken care of by us – the parents have to execute a bond undertaking not to marry the girl before 23 years of age. The objective is to create the role models of change of tomorrow – these girls are future change agents in their respective communities.

AJEH is not only an eye hospital, it is a human growth laboratory experimenting with optimiSing unbound human potential, passion and solidarity.

The only sports based programme in the world for girls which has a guaranteed job at the end of it.

ARRANGE A FUNDRAISING EVENT
event-img1

Treated patients going back to their villages by the hospital bus.
A fundraiser by a software engineer in his company helped us do free surgery on these 150 odd patients.

The blindness situation in Bihar warrants that we continually increasing the number of free surgeries as well as matching facilities every year. Despite the availability of the necessary human resources, we are held back by the lack of adequate funding for free surgeries.
You can help us by arranging a fundraising event anywhere in India – the trustees and key people will be happy to go anywhere to seek donations.

Niraj Pandey on 91 99735 50865.

OUTREACH ACTIVITIES

EYE SCREENING AT SCHOOL OR WORKPLACE
Considering the fact that 30% of India’s blind lose their sight before the age of 20 years and many of them are below five when they become blind, the importance of early detection and treatment of eye diseases and visual defects in young children is obvious. An example of such a visual defect is amblyopia (lazy eye), which left untreated, can result in a child having to live with poor vision his entire life. During a child’s first 12 years, 80% of all learning comes through vision, yet most children have not had a comprehensive eye exam prior to starting school. It is but natural that majority of students identified as problem learners have undetected vision problems. It is estimated that almost as high as 20% of children in Bihar have undetected eye problems including problems which can be easily treated like refractive errors.
Similarly there is a high incidence of refractive error in the adult, working population, which is treatable by prescribing the correct spectacles. Add to it the fact that the incidence of diabetes is increasing by the day and the stress we take daily in our lives, it becomes necessary to have an eye examination every year, especially if you are more than 40 years of age.
AKHAND JYOTI EYE HOSPITAL (AJEH) sends medical teams to schools and work places to screen and treat children and adults. You can help by arranging a eye screening at a school or workplace – the screening will be done by the hospital free of cost.

For arranging a screening or to know more, please contact
Md Azhar Khan on 91 88099 71398 or Mukesh Tiwary on 91 95723 40396 or e-mail at info@akhandjyoti.in
BECOME A PROTECTOR OF SIGHT
CHANDRADEO PRASAD FROM ISUAPUR, Saran, Bihar refers on average 20 patients every month as a PoS
The magnitude of blindness in Bihar always meant that our outreach staff would not be able to reach every village. Two of our senior employees devised and implemented a plan called PROTECTORS OF SIGHT (PoS), whereby our satisfied patients (especially those who were blind themselves) would act as patient motivators. PoS know how to screen the blind and send them to the hospital. All POS meet every quarter at AJEH to discuss their work in the respective areas. So why they do it? Since they have felt the trauma of being blind, they feel it a duty to eradicate blindness. This work has given them a new goal and made their life more meaningful.
Should you want become a PROTECTOR OF SIGHT and help us reach the unreached, for more details please call Md Azhar Khan on 91 88099 71398.
THE GOBI BOYS VISIT TO AJEH, MASTICHAK

Timothy Elborne was visiting the Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital recently and interacted with the patients. What's the link? Timothy & four of his friends ran 7 marathons in 6 days - they ran over 240 km across the Gobi desert in China over 6 days. The purpose - to raise funds for free surgeries for the poor at the hospital at Mastichak. And boy, did they make an impact - despite grossly damaged feet and shattered bodies, their indomitable spirit helped raise money for 13,000 sight restoring surgeries for Biharis. We take this opportunity to thank Timothy & his friends, better known here as The Gobi Boys, for their immense effort. We would be needing more efforts like these from all quarters, especially donations from India, if we are to achieve our vision of blind free Bihar by 2020.
