An expert ophthalmologist, an exceedingly successful entrepreneur, a diligent social worker and a noble individual, Dr. Tejal Dalal had founded Tej Eye Center (TEC) in Gandhinagar in August 2000 with the mission of “Vision for everyone and solo motive of helping thousands of people to avoid the bane of blindness.
With the compassion and ethos of its founder institutionalized in the organization, Tej Eye Center (TEC) does "CARE"for the entire society at large, irrespective of caste, creed, religion, status or geography -
C – Camps – Free eye check-ups
A – Awareness (educational) initiatives
R – Reach (outreach programs to all sections of society)
E – Eye Donation drives
Camps – Free eye and diabetes check-ups
TEC has conducted 3000+ Free Eye Check-up & Diabetic Camps per year attended by more than 1.5 lakh patients across villages, cities, corporate, government sectors across Gujarat.
Dr. Tejal Dalal personally participates and invests in these camps to promote regular eye check-ups, eye wellness guidelines and early identification of problems to avoid blindness in future.
Awareness (educational) initiatives
Dr. Tejal Dalal has conducted 400+ awareness lectures yearly on Avoidable Blindness and its eradication.
School eye screening is conducted at >200 schools across Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar as a part of social responsibility endeavors. We conduct educative programs for school teachers and parents to help detect eye problems at an early age.
Similarly while doing corporate eye screening, we make them aware of Computer Vision syndrome (CVS) and ways to reduce its impact on eye health.
Reach (outreach programs)
TEC’s social initiatives span across villages, schools, religious communities and corporates. Keeping the Upanishad ethos, “Tamso Ma Jyotir Gamaya” in mind, Dr. Dalal and TEC team continuously strive to reach maximum people possible and always inch closer towards the mission “Vision for everyone”
Dr. Tejal Dalal has started an initiative “Vision for everyone” where they encourage people to donate their old frames which TEC can refit with corrective glasses to help needy children and elderly for free. To date, TEC has helped many needy people with such refitted glasses, thanks to strong support and frames’ donation by people
Eye Donation & Enucleation of Cornea
Eye Donation Rally: Dr. Tejal Dalal took initiative and organized Eye Donation Rally on 10th October 2013 in Gandhinagar to create awareness among the public of the need for donating eyes and to bridge the gap between demand and supply of cornea. The rally was joined by more than 1500 people and flagged off by Hon’ble Deputy Chief Minister of Gujarat Shri Nitinbhai Patel. It was a resounding success as it motivated people to come forward and pledge for eye donation.
Enucleation of Cornea: Dr. Dalal has worked with state and central govt. to allow paramedical staff to collect corneas from donors resulting in tremendous increase of eye donations in villages, expanding employment for paramedical staff and enabling eye transplants for many people.
Dr. Dalal believes deeply that “there is no feeling better than compassion which you can fulfill through your profession” and hence, TEC members go beyond their profession to help tens of thousands of people and bring joy to their family! Objective is to eradicate “any avoidable form of blindness”.
