Vision Trust is a non-profit organization, running on donations, providing quality eyecare for the visually impaired in Pakistan.
A great number of common people in Pakistan, as perhaps in any developing country, suffer from curable blindness due to lack of adequate, decent and accessable eye care facilities.
Vision Trust therefore aims to bridge these gaps to whatever extent we can, by providing quality Eye Care for the Visually Impaired, at all levels, that we may be able to reach.
Vision Trust was providing these services, at a humble level at Bahadurabad, Karachi, Pakistan, in its 12th of year of operation thousands have benefited. This has provided us a firm foothold in society and a step for us to move on. It also reflects in a way our unvavouring resolve, persevearence and the results speak for themselves.
We have moved our clinic to better and bigger premises, near Islamia College, Karachi Pakistan, courtesy K&N Foundation. Our new address is as follows:
Khairun-Nisa Eye Hospital,
49/4 Dr. Tharani Road, Gujrat Colony,
Jamshed Road, Karachi, Pakistan.
In Khairun-Nisa Eye Hospital, the following facilites are available under one roof: computerized eye checking, A Scan Biometry, B Scan, Pachymetry, Keratometry, OCT, Argon Laser, YAG Laser, Laboratory, Medicines, Optics and others. The operation theaters are equipped with latest tools and machines where various operations are done including Cataract Surgery which is done by experienced surgeons without any injection, stitching and bandage.
We are planning to start school health services. Our objective is to provide eyesight screening to all the school going children of our country starting with the union councils of Jamshed Town.
We intend to empower the schools by training their staff to conduct a simple and routine eye sight screening tests. This will be followed by our mobile eyesight testing setup, adequately staffed and equipped to test and dispense glasses.
Long Term Plans
This is to be followed by expanding the scope to entire city, and adjoining areas.
