The Tej Kohli Cornea Institute, a partnership with the LV Prasad Eye Institute, focuses on preventing and controlling corneal blindness. We aim to accomplish this through the creation of a global network of resource centres. We are developing a network of cornea Institutes regionally and around the world using prevention and treatment strategies, human resources development for the care of corneal problems and research. This will encompass direct impact through service delivery and education and indirect impact through the outcomes of education, research, models, advocacy, plans and policy. This interlinked network will have a global impact on preventable and curable blindness in the world.
The Tej Kohli Cornea Institute, a partnership with the LV Prasad Eye Institute, is an eminent institution for R&D, preventative medicine and corneal transplants. Since 2016 we have seen more than 220,000 outpatients and carried out more than 22,000 cornea replacement surgeries, largely for free. The Institute also delivers prevention, treatment and cures for corneal blindness within some of the world’s poorest communities in remote and rural areas.
The Tej Kohli Foundation is a multi-disciplinary global centre of focus for the scientific development and advancement of an affordable, scalable and accessible technological solution for preventing and eliminating avoidable corneal blindness worldwide by 2035.
Started in 2005 by Wendy and Tej Kohli, The Tej Kohli Foundation has, for many years, supported projects at the heart of communities that have been neglected, especially when interventions help to combat a lack of education, poor health or prejudice.
