Aurobindo Eye Bank at Shri Aurobindo Nethralaya (SAMRC) holds a very special place; it was here that the journey toward bringing light into the lives of millions began. Today, Aurobindo Eye Bank, a model for the Chhatisgarh State, gets a pair of donor eyes almost every day. Thousands have benefitted from this gift of sight, through corneal transplant surgeries. ‘Paropakarartham idam sareeram’ (This body is meant to serve others) -- this is the guiding principle for Aurobindo Eye Bank.
The Aurobindo Eye Bank is one of the largest provider of sight restoring corneas in Chhattisgarh. Since its establishment in 2007 , Aurobindo has greatly increased the collection of donor corneas and has increased the performance standards .
