Miriam Hyman Children's Eye Care Centre
Partnership with the L V Prasad Eye Institute, Bhubaneswar, India
Miriam discovered in her teens that she was slightly short-sighted. She said that clarity of vision was a revelation to her when she first wore glasses. Being a lover of nature and art, she very much appreciated her own eye care services, and their impact on her quality of life.
The Miriam Hyman Children’s Eye Care Centre (MHCECC) was inaugurated on 3rd July, 2008 within the two-year-old L V Prasad Eye Institute, Bhubaneswar (BLVPEI), Odisha, India (lvpei.org). The MHMT donated essential equipment and the new Children's Eye Care Centre was named after her.
The MHMT continues to support the MHCECC and its Outreach programmes.
The MHCECC is committed to providing high-quality comprehensive eye care to children, irrespective of their families' ability to pay.
The MHCECC is making a significant impact on prevention and treatment of eye conditions and rehabilitation of patients. It will continue to do so for thousands of children who would otherwise have little access to eye care.
The MHCECC celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2018, when LVPEI produced this short video: 10 years of Miriam Hyman Children’s Eye Care Centre
