More than 65% of India lives in rural areas. Men, women and children do not have access to primary healthcare and even more primary eyecare. Under such circumstances, villagers have to travel long distances and endure hardships to access basic eye care.
Nayantara skills local rural youth by training them in basics of eyecare and screening methodology. We call them Visioneers. Using a cloud based technology platform and associated technologies, these local rural youth, organized in small teams, are able to deliver expert supervised eye screening and refraction testing in their neighbourhoods, villages and towns. At the end of the test, they provide with affordable glasses to those needing them. For those needing advanced eyecare are then guided to partner eye care institutions and Ophthalmologists using the envoy referral service.
The entire information is available on the cloud. Using the information, individual visioneers/customers/cases can be monitored for quality and analysis.
