India Vision Institute (IVI) India Vision Institute is a not-for-profit registered trust with a vision to promote excellence in a vision care delivery in India.

It is a joint initiative of the LV Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad and Brien Holden Vision Institute, Sydney. IVI is an independent, not-for-profit registered trust established in 2012, It is focused on supporting and promoting eye health awareness, research, education and technological development in Indian optometry to advance capacity in vision correction, and prevention of eye disease and blindness. One of its priorities is “preventable” blindness through timely intervention, particularly in disadvantaged communities. Eye see & I Learn is its initiative to screen the vision of underprivileged children from schools across India. In India, vision impairment for refractive error is a serious problem, affecting 1 in 20 children. That’s over 1 million children who need glasses. Many underprivileged children go untreated due to the lack of awareness and lack of access to eye care services. This is a huge problem, but there is a solution. In most cases, a pair of spectacles is all it takes to correct a child’s vision and help them see well. The programs of IVI identify the children with uncorrected refractive error and provide them with free spectacles. For more information please visit www.indiavisioninstitute.org
