Mission, Vision, and Values

We are making the world a brighter place, together!
Living in darkness is a reality for millions of people across the world. Ironically the burden is disproportionately borne by vulnerable communities, perpetuating a cycle of disadvantage. In India, limited access to quality eye care, socio-economic factors, and insufficient awareness contribute to the prevalence of preventable blindness. However, amidst these challenges, there is hope as 80% of these cases are curable. That is why Sankara Eye Foundation, USA, strives at offering a beacon of light and break the chains of curable blindness through our constant efforts.

Sankara Eye Foundation, USA's mission is to provide quality eye care services FREE of cost to the needy and disadvantaged in India.
Sankara Eye Foundation, USA's vision is to help eradicate curable blindness in India.
We respect human dignity, believe in genuine compassion & hope for a future without curable blindness.


Our mission is to reach out to the rural poor and provide quality eye care free of cost to the needy by building operationally self-sufficient super specialty eye care hospitals across India.


Our vision is to eradicate curable blindness in India.


SEF derives its strength from its values, and they form the core of our functioning and all our undertakings. In 2019, SEF USA was able to support over 215,000 free eye surgeries


Creating the world’s largest free eye care & surgery initiative!
It all started by supporting one hospital in Coimbatore. Today we have evolved into a robust network of 26 eye hospitals spread across 15 states in India. This metamorphosis was possible with our 60,000+ US donor base, and 1,000+ volunteers and families all over US.

The seeds of compassion were planted in 1998 by the visionaries Mr. Krishnamurthy Muralidharan, Mr. Krishnamurthy Sridharan, and Mr. Khushnood Ahmad, which have blossomed into a beacon of hope for millions of Indians.

Today, we all are fueled by a shared dream to help eliminate curable blindness in the heartlands of rural India.
