[ Message from the conference Chair ]

Dear friends and supporters,

I am delighted to announce and invite you to the first ever virtual International Conference ‘Eye Health in a Changing World’ from 3-4 October 2020.

The conference will feature an interesting mix of keynote addresses, panel discussions, parallel tracks, networking opportunities, and an online trade fair. What’s more, you can access the exclusive platform and attend this interactive live event from the comfort of your home.

We are working with a number of world leaders and organizations to make the event as exciting and futuristic as well as inclusive of current developments. A lot is changing around us and we approach every aspect of our life differently.

The conference will host visionaries who can think beyond the current circumstances and discuss and deliberate on the future direction of the eye care sector. The conference will have several distinguished keynote speakers and participants from India and the world. Dr NG Rao, Founder-Chair, LV Prasad Eye Institute, and Ms Yvonne Holden will open the conference on October 3.

There will be plenary and parallel sessions with talks, panel discussions, workshops on clinical ophthalmology, clinical optometry, public eye health, practice trends in various disciplines and paper presentations. We will very soon invite abstracts and will update the program developments from time to time. So, watch out for announcements.

You could be a part of this landmark event as a sponsor, exhibitor, presenter or as a delegate. We are making every effort to make this experience seamless, relevant, and individualistic.

[ About Us ]

India Vision Institute is an independent, not-for-profit registered trust (with section 12A, 80G and FCRA of IT Act clearance) established in India in 2012. Our approach to advance the optometry and eye care sector in India has been through conceptualizing and implementing programs and strategically addressing eye health awareness, continuous education, building leadership, and promoting the research culture. We also focus on addressing avoidable blindness, especially uncorrected refractive error through our vision screening programs and access to free spectacles in disadvantaged communities and remote areas.

Our strategic focus for 2020 - 2025 will be:

  • Develop and assist with the human resource needs of the Primary Eye Care Sector
  • Support continuous education and research in Optometry
  • Provide accessible vision screening services and spectacles for less privileged children and adults
  • Advocate for and implement programs to raise awareness about the need for good eye health practices and help prevent avoidable blindness
  • Be a Thought Leader and encourage self-sufficiency of the Indian optical industry for providing good vision care and excellent eye health.
  • Provide leadership in developing innovative ways of working.

We have conducted 277 capacity building programs, 55 research grants and 17 travel grants benefitting over 11, 000 eye health professionals across the country. Our 846 vision screening programs across India (Andhra Pradesh, Goa, Gujarat, Haryana, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, Mizoram, New Delhi, Odisha, Pondicherry, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and West Bengal) has benefitted over 3,20,352 individuals from the underprivileged communities, including 2,54,406 school children. We have so far distributed 49, 848 free spectacles through these programs.
