Eye Bank: Vanmukta Eye Bank
In India, the need for cornea restoring surgeries is one lakh per year for sight.
We in Susrut believe in donating three things in life- word, time and eye. Susrut eye foundation and research Institute has its own eye bank in Salt Lake, West Bengal, named “Vanmukta Eye Bank”.
The Vanmukta Eye Bank is one of the largest provider of sight restoring corneas in India. Since its establishment in 2003 , Vanmukta has greatly increased the collection of donor corneas and has increased the performance standards .
