Mission and Vision Eye Bank Facts Program Location Faq

 

   Sandhani International Eye Bank is one of the Associated Organizations of SNEDS. The Eye Bank Along with SNEDS was launched to ensure the involvement of the people of every walk of life with the posthumous eye donation movement of Snadhani. SIEB is the only one modern eye bank of the country. In the year 1984, the Rangpur Unit of Sandhani Encountered an approach for cornea for an 18 years adolescent girl named Tuntuni. The girl was blind from her early childhood. SNEDS appealed to Dr. Hudson Silva of Srilanka for a pair of corneas for Tuntuni.Dr. Hudson Silva visited Bangladesh during 23 to 25 of November, 1984. At that time on November 25, 1984, Sandhani International eye Bank was launched. From there Eye bank under the able leadership of SNEDS works for restoring the sights of blind people. In the year 2003 SNEDS took a four-year project for increasing the collection of corneas. The partner of the project is Strengthening the Eye banking Capacity of SNEDS. At present the Eye bank of SNEDS is working under the project.

  
    It was revealed from the statistics that the requirements for corneas can be fulfilled in Bangladesh with the corneas of only 1.5% of the dead people every year. So, we gave importance to convince the people for posthumous eye donation. In this process the relatives of the deceased are requested to donate the eyes of their beloved. The process is known as Grief Counseling. We have grief counselors who attend the patient for all the time. Their duty is to dedicate themselves for the service of the patient and show sympathy to the patient's relatives. The counselors in the suitable time make approach to the relatives of the patients for collecting the corneas of the deceased. In this process we follow the existing law of Bangladesh. It is found that the Grief Counseling method became successful in the U.S.A, India, Nepal, Myanmar and even in the in the survey of SNEDS at Chittagong Medical college. Besides the Grief counseling method we use Hospital based retrieval programs to motivate the staffs, doctors and nurses of the hospital for collecting more corneas. To Know more about us Click here
