Mahatma Gandhi Eye Hospital & Research Institute, a unit of Antyodaya Chetana Mandal (ACM), is serving a population of four million in the districts of Mayurbhanj, Balasore, Bhadrak and Keonjhar in North Odisha as well as needy ones from neighboring states of Jharkhand and West Bengal..
Our hospital was inaugurated by Sj. Krishna Kant (Former Vice President of India) and Sj. Naveen Patnaik (Chief Minister of Odisha) on 28th December, 2000.
Set up in an Ashramic environment of a tribal inhabited village Rangamatia, 3kms away from Rasgovindpur block headquarter in Mayurbhanj district, our eye hospital has managed to reach the doorstep of the needy ones in remotest parts with the help of outreach screening camps.
Mainly, the high ratio of blindness among the people of North Odisha has inspired us to face complicated eye care challenges and help decrease the number of visually impaired by providing necessary & immediate treatments.
With 19 years of existence in the rurals, we have proudly treated over 10,00,000 patients in our hospital’s OPD and have helped more than 85,000 visually impaired patients in retrieving their vision through cataract surgeries and medications.
Mahatma Gandhi Eye Hospital & Research Institute is a symbol of ‘Gram Swaraj’-
the basic value premise of Mahatma Gandhi.
“Right to Sight and Reaching the Unreached”.
By means of high quality modern instruments and equipment as well as high commitment and sincerity, Mahatma Gandhi Eye Hospital & Research Institute has earned the reputation of being an apex eye care institution in the North Odisha.
We believe unawareness and ignorance to be among the prime reasons leading to high density blindness in rural areas. Hence, apart from offering curative measures at our base hospital, we also emphasize in spreading awareness about Blindness among the people in the interiors of Odisha.
To serve the community in control of blindness through preventive, curative and promoting measures by establishing eye care services in rural areas of Odisha.
