Kashyap Memorial Eye Bank, Ranchi, is devoted to combat blindness in the State of Jharkhand, by raising awareness on Eye Donation, holding Eye Screening camps, Cataract detection and surgery camps, Diabetic Retinopathy camps and restore sight to millions.


The mission of Kashyap Memorial Eye Bank translates to be:

Public education and Breaking taboo of organ donation: The Eye Bank shall strive to break the taboo of organ donation by organising Eye Donation Awareness Programs, each year to coincide with the National Eye Donation Awareness Fortnight, celebrated all over the country .

Organising Eye Camps :The Eye Bank shall on its own or in association with voluntary organisations, public and private sector companies, departments of the state government, trade and professional bodies and others, hold eye screening camps particularly for the more vulnerable sections of the society.

Creating a pool of trained manpower to reduce blindness : The Eye Bank shall strive to provide training to teachers working in government schools all over the state, in primary detection of refractive errors, detection of Vitamin A deficiency, squints, lazy eyes and cataracts.

Base Hospital Concept: At all Eye Camps conducted by Kashyap Memorial Eye Bank, patients would only be screened. Later they would be brought to the base hospital, Kashyap Memorial Eye Hospital, Ranchi, in batches, for surgery, to cut down the risk of post-operative infection and for early rehabilitation.


In 1991, Dr Bharti Kashyap and Dr Birendra Prasad Kashyap, formed The Kashyap’s Memorial Eye Bank and Charitable Trust, which got associated with Eye Bank Association of India. In 1995, the Kashyap Memorial Eye Bank got its first locally retrieved pair of eyes of Mr. H.N. Prasad who had already pledged his eyes before his demise and the First Cornea transplantation of the State was done. As early as 1996, the Eye Bank realised the need to focus on detection and removal of cataract in children, particularly those residing in the remotest parts of Jharkhand. Since then, the Eye Bank has been organising Cataract Detection Camps in the remote areas of the state and operating them with the latest technology available. The organisation started base hospital cataract surgery camps in Jharkhand in 1996 for which the Eye Bank has been rewarded by Hon’ble Governor of Jharkhand.

Message From The Director

Kashyap Memorial Eye Bank

Dr. Bharti Kashyap

Results of Cornea Transplantation have improved over the years with better technology and knowledge. Lamellar Keratoplasty advances have further increased the chances of longevity of graft and early rehabilitation of patients.

Bioengineered Corneas are now being developed and their behaviour in human eyes is being tested, but until then Human Donor Cornea is the only available option for Cornea Transplantation. Kashyap Memorial Eye Bank has continually motivated the people of Jharkhand for Eye Donation.

We are abreast with the latest technologies and procedures of Cornea Transplantation with a mission to provide expert services to the people of Jharkhand within the state itself.


Cornea is the most anterior part of the eye. It is transparent like glass and acts like a window for passage of light into the eye.
In Cornea transplantation the diseased cornea from the patient is removed and cornea received from donor after death is transplanted on the patient’s eye.
There are different layers of the cornea -
Sometimes all the layers need to be replaced – full thickness keratoplasty
Sometimes only the anterior layers need to be replaced like Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK)
Sometimes only the posterior most layer needs to be replaced like in Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty and Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK and DMEK)
• Hereditary corneal dystrophies • Keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration • Corneal decompensation • Endothelial dystrophies • Chemical injuries • Congenital corneal opacities • Non healing infectious keratitis • Corneal perforation or thinning • Post traumatic or post infectious corneal opacities Corneal blindness is one of the major causes of blindness in our country. We have more than 1.5 lakh corneal blind people. Every year more patients get adding to this list. The only way to reduce blindness is by doing corneal transplant.
The number of corneal transplants performed are much less than the actual requirement due to the insufficient number of corneas collected.
