Cataracts are often related to the aging process, but they are also occasionally found in younger people. It is completely treatable but if untreated, the person becomes totally blind. But due to poverty, many senior citizens live with blindness. The Navalbhai and Hiraba Eye Hospital set up by the BPA, in collaboration with the Bareja General Hospital Trust provides comprehensive eye care services to people with eye problems, in several villages around Bareja. The program conducts free eye camps and surgeries for poor patients suffering from cataracts. Patients are provided with consultation, surgery, accommodation, spectacles, medicine, transportation, and follow-up treatment. Donations made to this program support the cost of surgery, sutures, lens, and administrative expenses. Close to 3 lakh patients are served annually by the Blind People's Association. By supporting this program you can help poor senior citizens get free cataract surgery and reclaim their life.
