Sankara Eye Foundation operates ten super specialty eye care hospitals in India providing a full range of eye care services. A typical Sankara Eye Hospital is a 225-bed state-of-the art facility with 200 beds for patients receiving free service and 25 beds for paid patients. Equipped with most modern facilities, highly skilled & knowledgeable full-time dedicated specialists and highly motivated staff, the Sankara Eye Foundation is committed to clinical excellence, personalized patient care and best eye care services at all times to all our patients.
One of the unique features of the Sankara Eye Hospitals is the self-sustainable 80:20 model; where 20% of the paid surgeries support 80% of the free surgeries. This model ensures that hospitals fund themselves once the self-sufficiency is reached. Starting with only one hospital performing about 8,000 free eye surgeries in 1998, today, SEF has grown to ten hospitals performing around 200,000 free eye surgeries per year.
Today, SEF is the largest free eye care provider in the world!
The next hospitals are coming up in Mumbai, Hyderabad and Mastichak in Bihar with one of our Partner Hospitals.
