After the successful organisation of Netra Kumbh during Prayag Kumbh from January to March 2019, the Nyas made it a regular feature in Lucknow. The name of the project has also been kept as Netra Kumbh Chikitsalaya. Here, Eye-testing is done at a very low cost and the spectacles are given at a nominal price of Rs 150 only. Even that amount is also not charged from those who cannot pay that amount.
Arrangements are being made to have the latest and world class machines related to Eye-testing and operations. Once they are installed, the people will get the facility of the operations of eyes using the latest equipment and that too at a very low cost.
The Netra Kumbh Chikitsalaya has moved to a new building where much more space is available than before. In July, 2020, the centre was shifted to this new building which is located at a very prime location in Lucknow. Many prominent personalities of Lucknow were present on that occassion.
This year, it’s name has been changed from Netra Kumbh Chikitsalaya to Deole Netra Chikitsalaya, in memory of the Founder Trustee of our Nyas Late Sh. Madhavrao Deole. He was socially active in so many social organisations and working hard for the upliftment of the weaker section of the society.
Arrangements are being made in the new building to establish a new operation theatre with the latest equipment and machines required to operate the eye with latest available technologies. It will be operational very shortly.
