Naee Nigah Program


Pfizer partnered with HelpAge to conduct 7500 cataract surgeries in 2002-2003.
This program aims to empower the infirm elderly, by restoring their independence and dignity, to enable them to continue earning their livelihood with renewed sight. The project funding covers the cost of creating awareness, conducting surgeries, the intra-ocular implants, medicines, food, spectacles, stay and post operative care.

Free screening camps for senior citizens are held in different states across India.  Patients identified with operable cataract are then referred to pre-identified base hospitals where the cataract surgeries are conducted by a team of ophthalmologists and paramedical staff.  A team of dedicated health workers from the base hospitals later provides supportive services to the project beneficiaries who reside in the peripheral villages.
