The Daughters of Charity began this small with a visiting ophthalmologist who treated and operated upon persons affected by leprosy who have eye complications. With the CBR program, it expanded to include other people with eye problems. Regular outreach programs ensure wider coverage especially of the poor who might otherwise be unable to access the service. Services include Primary eye care, eye surgeries, optometry, optical services, mobility and orientation and health education for the prevention of blindness and early intervention. Christian Blind Mission played a major role in the establishment of these services and supported some of the activities to some extent.
