What We've Done
The cost of performing a corneal transplant operation falls drastically when using human-donated cornea rather than synthetic ones.
The Tej Kohli Cornea Institute supported the build of, and relied heavily upon, this eye bank infrastructure, which now serves as a sustainable template model that can be adopted elsewhere.
We committed to building a UK research network which was dedicated to 'maintaining the surface of the eye in a clear and transparent state'.
We also funded and supported groundbreaking new research and treatments in the United Kingdom which can then be transferred into the poor and developing communities where needless corneal blindness remains highly pervasive.
Mission To Cure
The latest effort in curing blindness across the developing world comes from an alliance formed between Tej Kohli and world renowned optometrist Dr. Sanduk Ruit.
