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.

 

Cataract operations in Bihar are performed at a cost of £20 each, these are performed by Doctors giving their time free of charge.  The low cost of operations means that currently around 35,000 operations are performed a year, but the hospitals could do more if more funding was available.
