Dr. Sundar Ram Shetty,
From the Chairmanís Desk
I had a vision - Best of eye care to the poorest of the poor even at the remotest place. Globe Eye Foundation was conceived to realize that vision. This Hospital is an important milestone on the path to our goal.
We know that many more such milestones will have to be passed before we rest. Since moving into the new Hospital building in Feb 2005, we have been able to improve and expand our services to the community significantly. We remember all our donors with profound sense of gratitude, who kept company to reach this far. We have been joined recently in our quest by members of the C.P.Bothra trust with the promise to move towards our goal even faster. We have made a promise to ourselves to make eye- care facilities reach the un-reached and we will continue to strive hard to keep it.
Globe Eye Foundation is the vision of Dr. Sunder Ram Shetty, who found the need for an organization to address the need of the poor and the unreachable in the area of eye care service. GEF came in to existence in the year 1995 with the above objectives.
To fulfill the above objectives G E F Eye Hospital was started in a humble way in small rented premises at Hoskote town of Bangalore rural district in the year 1996. GEF with its commendable record in the service activity and wide popularity among the beneficiaries found the need to increase and expand the facility. In the year 2005 the new GEF Eye Hospital came into existence.
This is a facility having 14000 sq. ft. area and complete with out patient department, in-patient department and operation theatre facilities. Presently it is equipped with all the latest equipment to provide not only the basic eye care but also specialty eye care services.
In line with VISION 2020, GEF has adopted 3 tier system to deliver the eye care services to the community. GEF has the vision to develop this 3 tier system by providing the vision centre (primary), tertiary centre and GEF referral eye hospital.
GEF intends to take this service to other districts of Karnataka where there is further need for eye care. The ultimate objective will be to have every taluk of the state covered by vision centre and every district by a base hospital and one referral hospital for the state.
In July 2009 the Hospital was renamed as GEF Eye Hospital & Bothra Institute of Community Ophthalmology.
