I have been working towards spreading awareness about eye donation since 1981, inspired by an article in the Reader's Digest. After months of research involving visits to eye banks, initial steps towards reaching people were taken at Kalpakkam in Tamil Nadu, where I was posted then. A desire for increasing the footprint resulted in me asking for, and getting, transferred to Mumbai in 1991. All my spare time is devoted to the cause and currently, I deliver lectures, conduct poster exhibitions, put up stalls/table spaces at public places for creating the awareness.

On Apr.21,2011,an artificial cornea was grafted on a garment warehouse worker,Shri.Kedar of Bhosari,Pune,Maharashtra.This was brought from Massachusetts eye and ear infirmary , United States Of America and was grafted at K K Eye institute. The eye is responding well to the treatment.
I think this is a ray of hope to some of the corneal blind persons of India.
