Pushpagiri Eye Institute is dedicated to contributing towards the eradication of preventable blindness by providing appropriate and compassionate high quality Specialty Eye Care for all and especially to those who cannot afford it.

Innovation Description

PVRI also organizes outreach clinics (currently, approximately 10 per month), mobile screening units, and treatment camps in rural areas throughout the region, as well as provides in-house care. Targeting agricultural workers and students in particular, PVRI provides fee-based services as well as serving all low-income patients. The latter are either treated for free or covered through the Sri Rajiv Aarogyasri scheme of the Government of Andhra Pradesh. PVRI is the only eye care facility in the state accredited to provide vision care to below the poverty line (BPL) Aarogyasri members.
