Restoring Eyesight in Nepal

Living in the Himalayas of Nepal, Ama had no hope of regaining her eyesight, until five years ago, when she received cataract surgery at a Seva remote eye camp. Ama was excited to show donors everything she could do after receiving the sight-restoring operation: she is once again an active, contributing member of the household. Watch the Video

Nepal
More than 80% of the blindness in Nepal is either preventable or curable, but the vast majority of people in Nepal do not have access to quality, affordable eye care. Seva works in 21 of Nepal's 75 districts to bring essential eye care services to Nepal's most vulnerable populations, including women, children, and rural communities.

Since 1978, Seva has worked with partners in Nepal to develop a network of eye care providers and services. Seva supports continuing medical education, professional training, and provides surgical equipment and supplies, all of which serve to increase the quality of patient care.

All aspects of Seva's programs serve to build the local capacity to deliver high quality, sustainable eye care. By equipping our partners with the tools they need to provide quality, efficient services, Seva builds locally-run eye care programs that are self-sustaining within 5-10 years of establishment. Seva's proven model of sustainable development is based on a simple formula: roughly one-third of patients subsidize the cost of the two thirds who cannot afford eye care services.
