Many patients are screened and they are appropriately advised. A few patients are given the required treatment free of cost.







The Lions club of Erode is very keen in eye donation. The members of the club meet the persons of the deceased family and speak with them with care and caution. They explain the need for the eyes and with that the service they do for the needy. After their acceptance, the eyes are donated to the visually challenged. The members still remember the speech of Helen Keller at the Lions International meeting and follow her words and try to keep it for ever.
