Second Sight

Second Sight is a registered Charity, run by a British Doctor,  Dr Lucy Mathen, which is trying to ensure that no-one suffers from curable blindness in Bihar, India by the end of 2020, and to leave a legacy of local hospitals with local eye surgeons where patients too poor to pay are never forgotten.

 

Bihar is chosen as it is the worst place in India for cataract blindness and poverty which walk hand in hand.

 

The majority of the 40,000 operations funded by Second Sight are done by Indian surgeons employed in partner hospitals or working in their own practices. The cost of performing operations is very low, and with additional funds more teams could be supported, working towards the Charity's aims of every district in Bihar having its own community hospital.
