Diabetic Retinopathy-free India initiative
Diabetic retinopathy is asymptomatic to begin with. Most of the people are not aware of the eye component of diabetes and they do not go for routine eye
checkup as they do it for sugar. Most people have the misconception that if the sugar is controlled, they would not have any eye complication due to diabetes.
In that context, to create awareness and to detect damages inside the eye (retina) of diabetic patient early, Tej eye center has signed a MoU with Health
& Family Welfare Department of Govt. of Gujarat during vibrant summit for Diabetic Retinopathy screening. It has been successfully running for last 01 year
in CHCs and PHCs of govt. setupusing high-end Fundus camera.
