AIM

The Kashyaps’ Memorial Eye Baank is one of the best and NABH accredited eye bank in east region of India. This eye bank was established with the purpose of disseminating the importance of eye donation and to facilitate the collection, processing and distribution of eyes to the needy, i.e., to help people with corneal blindness. There are 1.5 million corneally blind people in India. Statistically we should get approximately 1 lakh eyes per annum. There are 400 eye banks in India, which collect only 22 thousand eyes per annum. The aim in 2005 was collect 22 thousand eyes while target for 2020 is 4 lakhs eye donation. There are many cases which go unreported and hence the corneally blind people are likely to be much more than what is reported and hence the situation is much grave. Till date the treatment of the corneally blind people is corneal grafting. Corneal grafting means that the blind person’s opaque cornea is exchanged with the transparent cornea which is donated by the generous dead people and their next of kin. Since the treatment is only possible by the donated eyes, it is essential that there should be an “eye donation awareness”, actual eye donation and performing the corneal grafting programme in this area. It is world wide accepted that the non governmental voluntary organization have a pivotal role to play. So our registered charitable trust is a step in this direction.

HISTORY OF EYE BANK
It was Late Dr. Bharat Prasad Kashyap, Professor and Head of the Department (Eye) Rajendra Medical and Hospital now RIIMS Ranchi who realized the grave situation of corneally blind people. He met Dr. Peter Anderson of Australia in one of the blind relief camps and the ball started rolling. With the help of the Australian doctor Late Prof. Kashyap could procure six corneas from Australia. Prof. Bharat Prasad Kashyap grafted those four corneas on 1st Jan. 1979. Looking at the positive results a number of efforts were made to revise the corneal grafting but for some or the other reasons nothing actually materialized. Though Lot of Eye banks came into existence and but all of them remained defunct for years.  

Later in the year 1991 Dr Birendra Prasad Kashyap and Dr Bharti Kashyap formed Kashyap Memorial Eye Bank and charitable trust, which got associated with Eye Bank Association of India. The very first Life member from the whole Eastern India Kashyap Memorial Eye Bank and charitable trust received its membership No. LEI.

As the time passed the working personnel headed by Dr. Bharti Kashyap, the managing trustee and medical director of the eye bank trust increased and the Eye Bank got the Institutional membership in 1996.

In the year 1995 after a long gap of 16 years the eye bank got the 1st locally retrieved Pair of eyes of Mr. H. N. Prasad who had already pledged his eyes before his demise. Since then the Eye Bank Trust has kept on receiving donors responses. Presently the eye bank has 192 eye donations to its credit. To promote people to come forward donating their eyes for the noble human cause the trust regularly organizes several programmes. Netra Daan Maha Daan is one to name with.

ACTIVITIES OF EYE BANK

Blind Relief Camps
Every year we hold blind relief camps in different areas along with different organization.
Initially we did simple cataract operation without intra ocular lenses. But we stopped doing simple cataract operations without IOL since 1998. Now all the cataract operations are done with IOLs.
Lately since 1999 all the operations for cataract are operated with no stitch technique which the latest in cataract surgery of course with IOLs.

At. Blind Relief Camps -- At Blind relief camps we not only screen the patients for cataracts but we also prepare a list for corneally blind people. We also make them aware of eye donation and the importance of eye Donation.

Now in blind relief camps -- We make people aware of Eye Donation. We prepare the list of Corneally Blind People. Take their full  postal Address and Telephone No. if possible or any contact phone number. We bring all the Cataract patients in groups of 10s and operate them with Phakoemulsification with intra ocular lenses. It has really revolutionized the visual rehabilitation of the every poor people. After all, why a poor person should have an inferior visual recovery just because he is economically weak?

School Screening
School screening has received much importance these days and truly it should have  been. In school screening we train the school teachers to take the vision of the students which is of prime importance. Less vision because of refractive errors, other congenital ocular abnormalities, trauma. Vitamin A deficiencies were found to be the cause of concern and they were treated accordingly. Students were given speeches for the Diets to avoid Vitamin. A deficiency. They are told about the precautions while playing to avoid eye injury. They were made aware of Eye Donations. We have received tremendous response not only from the student but also from the teachers and principals alike.

Diabetic Retinopathy project with IAS Wives Association
We have treated 20 poor patients suffering from diabetic retinopathy with Laser treatment and Costly Intravitreal Avastine injections. We have targeted Diabetic population in slum areas, as it is the avoidable blindness and priority area in VISION 2020 Project.

Rural Areas
When we say rural areas, we mean really remote areas where poor people having the eye care facility like in urban areas is just unthinkable. And we love to help this kind of poor people. We also mean the area which is supposed to be terrorist infested areas and many Government Aids remain very difficult to reach them.

Association with Other NGOs
We are in close association with different associations  for the noble cause. They  help us in locating the rural areas and the poor people. They contribute with the man power at the site and for organizing the different groups of patients for the cataract. They also keep the tract of the corneally blind people. Many have also contributed with cash and kinds,  mostly with kinds.

Blind Relief Camps

Every year in association with different organization the trust holds blind relief camps in different remote areas. In Jharkhand we have pioneered yet another socially obligatory move in the field of eye care, the base hospital phaco cataract eye surgery camps. Here the poor and needy are taken care of with phaco cataract treatment, a surgery where minimal postoperative care time duration is needed and which gives maximal protection against trauma with great wound stability. It has been quite helpful move for them as they are the one who need the utmost care. Since 1999 all the operations for cataract are operated with no stitch technique which the latest in cataract surgery of course with IOLs.

We bring all the cataract patients in groups of 20 and operate them with Phakoemulsification with intra ocular lenses at base hospital It has really revolutionized the visual rehabilitation of the poor people and cut down the risk of post operative infection and other complications to zero level.
At Blind relief camps we not only screen the patients for cataracts but we also prepare a list for corneal blind people. We also make them aware of eye donation and the importance of eye Donation.
