Focus on Bihar – Laxman Eye Hospital
Laxman Eye Hospital, Muzaffarpur district.
This bustling city hospital carries out extensive and meticulous hut-to-hut screening in rural areas of four districts and in the slums of Muzaffarpur. They have carried out over 100,000 cataract operations, restoring sight to around 25,000 people each year. We helped establish a paediatric unit. In 2018 their senior surgeon Dr Kumar Krishnan was invited to the UK to make a presentation on Suitable, Integrated, Cost-effective and Sustainable eye services as implemented by small to medium-sized eye hospitals in Bihar.
NB LEH would like to make it clear that they have no association with a group calling itself friendsagainstpoverty.org as claimed by this organisation.
