Public Awareness Programs
The RIEB conducts a two-week eye donation awareness program aimed at increasing awareness of eye donation and corneal blindness in August-September every year. During this period, special events are held at the Institute and in several public locations around the city of Hyderabad.
Pledge cards are distributed and collected, with several public personalities signing pledges at highly publicized events. The eye bank also distributes posters for public display, holds seminars and lectures for different groups, and distributes public awareness literature in several Indian languages as well as in English.
