Annual Free Eye Operation Camp

The ideal of service followed in the Ramakrishna Movement is based on the principle, `Shiva-jnane-jiva-seva`, to serve man  as potentially divine. For the last 20 years the college has been organising a free eye operation camp(IOL) as  a part of the National Service Scheme (NSS) in collaboration with the Disha Eye Hospital, Barrackpore.
For the last 18 years the college has been organising a free eye operation camp as a part of the National Service Scheme (NSS).The Free Eye Operation Camp involves a systematic process of preliminary eye examination and medication, surgery for operable cases, power correction and sheltering the patients in the college. On the first day of the camp, patients are admitted and placed in the college to begin the process of initial health checkups. Patients who are advised further investigation and surgical corrections are shifted to the Disha Eye Hospital, Barrackpore. From cataract removal to micro surgery with Intra ocular Lens Implantation, all sorts of medical procedures are accomplished by the experts to improve the vision of the patients. The intense help and cooperation rendered by The Disha Eye Hospital in this regard is worth mentioning. The patients, after the operation are returned to the college camp and sheltered for post surgery medical assistance and nursing.
Thus, the NSS Free Eye Operation camp proves to be a significant step towards eradicating blindness from the country and rendering healthy vision to a large section of people. Unfortunately, it is not, however easy to provide this facility to everyone. Hence, only old, impoverished, disabled or helpless people of the nearby areas are facilitated. The college students and staffs including the monastic members give their best effort to serve these people passionately. Since, all these works are done as a part of worship, and only the best things are offered to the lord, the members of the of the college try to accomplish this task in the best possible way.

Like every year Free Cataract Operation Camp was organized in the College by the NSS wing of the college from 16th  December, 2017 to 18th  December, 2017. All total 44 patients (18 Male patients and 26 Female patients) underwent the surgery at Disha Hospital, Barrackpore. Pre-operative screeing and check up and Post-operative medical care,  check up and spectacles were provided at the College by the students, teachers and other volunteers. Needless to say that all the patients came from needy backgrounds.
