Retinal Surgery for children at Mahavir Netralaya

HHH is going to celebrate it's 50th anniversary this year. For the past 50 years and organization conceived at the Ganesh Temple in NY has been helping differently abled children throughout the world by sending donations to various charities.

Using the funds collected so far in the last quarter the organization has been pursuing an endeavor to a healthy society as far as children's vision is concerned at Bihar

Details of the Retinal surgery conducted at Mahavir Netralaya for children in last few months are enumerated below:

  • Green Laser for Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) - 4 eyes
  • Intravitreal AVASTN injection in RoP cases - 6 eyes
  • Vitero Retinal surgeries forTraumaticRD-4eyes
  • Vitero Retinal surgeries for MacularHole-2eyes
  • Foreign body removal from vitreous - 1 eye
  • Traumatic lens dislocation removal & secondary IOL - 1 eye

Furthermore, this organization would like to enhance our services in Posterior segment (i.e. Retina) at Mahavir Netralaya apart from our pediatric and General ophthalmology segment especially for children with retinal problems.


The retinal problems in pediatric patients are mostly left unattended by general ophthalmologist in far flung areas because of lack of facility. Moreover, most of these patients belong to deprived section of the society and are unable to reach tertiary care hospitals.

Continuing with our dedicated service, the organization would like to extend our approach to whole of Bihar so that more and more children can be treated and cured. For this, they are going to conduct
regular screening at different location around our district where we will do the primary
examination. From those children select those who need further treatment or surgery. we plan to bring them to the center and do the required procedure and then drop them to their destination with proper

1. The cost of surgery comes to around Rs. 25000 Rs for each Retinal case apart from the
General Anesthesia charges. considering approximately 100 to 120 cases in a year, the total
cost will exceed Rs' 25 lakhs'
2. For better screening and monitoring of Retinal surgeries cases, we would like to purchase one RETCAM machine which costs around Rs' 20 lakhs

 Please do contribute towards the noble cause by participating in the GlobalGiving campaigns for this project

Thanks and Regards
