Weekly Free Urban eye Camp - Kannappar Free Eye Camp
Cataract is the most common cause of blindness.
In a bid to alleviate this entirely preventable problem Hindu Mission Hospital has been conducting free eye screening camps with free eye surgery for the needy.
Every Wednesday, the hospital's doctors visit the nearby villages to screen for cataracts. Patients detected with cataracts are brought to the hospital for follow up surgery conducted between Thursday to Saturday.
Seeing the popularity of this scheme, patients from far off places like Ranipet are brought to the hospital in a bus for free eye surgery.
This activity has been continuing without break since its inception.
