Seva’s Drivers for Success: Technology

Millions of people today live in a world of darkness, unable to study, play, work, or do simple household chores. The need for eye care services far exceeds its supply.

Introducing Seva’s Drivers for Success: Technology.

Seva invests in tried-and-true technology to be able to reach everyone, especially the most vulnerable in very remote areas. This not only increases patients’ access to care by removing certain barriers, but also helps create more sustainable, efficient systems to deliver eye care.

Seva leverages tele-ophthalmology to streamline hospital flow, multiply the efforts of in-demand eye care specialists, and to help eye care programs serve the hardest-to-reach communities around the world.

Since our early days, when we partnered with Aravind [AH-ruh-vind] and Aurolab [OR-uh-lab]  in India to disrupt the eye care market by making sight-saving technology available at a fraction of the cost, we have played a leading role in exploring how new and emerging technologies can assist our work. Today, this ranges from compact, portable camera systems for remote screening of patients, without an ophthalmologist being physically present, to working once again to make the most-used medication in eye care available at a much lower cost.

With your support, we can bring the best technology to the hardest-to-reach communities across the globe.

Help us provide eye care services to the most remote communities in the world.

Seva's Drivers for Success

Vision Centers

Vision Centers are local permanent establishments that can address up to 80% of all eye care needs. They make basic eye care accessible to a community, no matter how remote, while also spreading awareness and serving as the foundation of a larger global referral network.


Technology is utilized and developed throughout our programs to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of outreach initiatives, vision screenings, hospital flow, complex surgical procedures, and to multiply the efforts of in-demand eye care specialists around the world.

Eye Care for Children

Eye Care for Children focuses on providing kids with comprehensive pediatric eye care. Awareness building and eye screening services are embedded into schools and communities, developing referral networks so that children get the care they need to thrive.

Training & Job Creation

Training and Jobs Creation expands access to eye care by scaling up the training and use of ophthalmic support staff and developing sustainable programs which create jobs for local women and men and stimulate the economy in their communities.
