The L V Prasad Eye Institute (LVPEI) was established in 1987 at Hyderabad as a not-for-profit, non-government, public-spirited, comprehensive eye care institution. The Institute is a World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Prevention of Blindness and a Global Resource Centre for VISION 2020: The Right to Sight initiative. LVPEI has ten active arms to its areas of operations: Clinical Services, Education, Research, Vision Rehabilitation, Rural and Community Eye Health, Eye Banking, Advocacy and Policy Planning, Capacity Building, Innovation and Product Development.

The LVPEI pyramidal model of eye care delivery currently includes a Centre of Excellence in Hyderabad, 3 Tertiary Centres in Bhubaneswar, Visakhapatnam and Vijayawada, 20 Secondary Centres, 4 City Centres and 206 Primary Care Vision Centres that cover the remotest rural areas in the four states of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and Karnataka. Its teaching eye hospital is an exemplar of high quality service provision through cross-subsidization between the paying and nonpaying patient categories.

This book provides insights into the ideas, diligence and commitment that went into the making of the institute – from hospital-based service provision to community eye care, from epidemiological studies to basic research and clinical research.
