    Description

    I am an Optometrist by profession, graduated from Bausch and Lomb School of Optometry (BLSO) in affiliation with L V Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad in the year 2008. I am a self-taught photographer since 2012 & my work earned recognition and publication in iconic magazines such as National Geographic Daily News, EarthSky etc. I have been awarded Gold Medal from Royal Photographic Society, London for one of my photograph captured during Yi Peng Lantern Festival, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

    I have been traveling to many places and witnessed incredible beauty of nature since 2013. As a Photographer I cherished all those moments in my camera but would like to contribute to society as an optometrist through my art. So I came up with this fundraising campaign "See the World through My Eyes". All the funds raised through this campaign will be donated to Non Paying division of LVPEI to perform free cataract surgeries and treat other eye ailments for patients below poverty line.

    According to UNESCO, year 2015 was declared as the “Year of Light” and my photograph’s represents exactly the same theme from the field of optometry, as ‘light and lenses’ are common in both fields of Photography and Optometry.

    I have started this Initiative with my First Solo Fundraising Photography Exhibition in May 2015 where I had displayed all my award winning photographs at Art Gallery of L V Prasad Eye Institute’s (LVPEI) Kallam Anji Reddy campus in Hyderabad. The exhibition was launched on 02 May 2015 by the honorable Chairman of LVPEI, Dr Gullapalli Nageswara Rao and my parents. It was not a wonder as nearly half of the displayed work vanished in just 10 days and the idea of course is that all the funds raised through this exhibition were donated to non-paying division of LVPEI to perform free cataract surgeries and treat other eye ailments for patients below poverty line as to prevent "Avoidable Blindness" in the country.

    Why L V Prasad Eye Institute ?

    I chose LVPEI and the reason is that I was graduated from BLSO to which LVPEI is the parent organization. I knew that LVPEI delivers world class eyecare services to their patients and also offers such services at no cost to patients below poverty line. That is why the title given to this campaign “See The World Through My Eyes” is just right for such a noble cause.

    India is now home to the world's largest number of blind people. Out of 37 million blind people across the globe, 15 million are from India and 75% of these are cases of Avoidable Blindness.

    Thus this campaign is targeted to raise funds to treat Avoidable Blindness in India for the unprivileged population.

    As a token of appreciation for your generous contribution to this social cause in preventing Avoidable Blindness, every donor who donates INR 6000 and above will receive a Print of one of my Award Winning Photograph on a High Quality Fine Art Paper.

    Looking forward for all your generosity and let us stand together to fight against Blindness in the country.
