Trilochan Netralaya is a non-profit charitable eye hospital which was established in Sambalpur, a part of western Odisha by Dr. Shiva Prasad Sahoo in 2008.
Having been born in a low-income family Dr. Shiva struggled a lot to get into medical profession. After completion of postgraduation, he left the opportunity of a luxurious high paid salaried job and decided to stay back to serve the needy and poor people of western Odisha.
Since its inception, Trilochan Netralaya has transformed the lives of more than 1lakh people in around 12 districts of western Odisha by sight-restoring cataract surgery.
Blindness is the greatest tragedy next to death and 80% of this blindness is avoidable. Western Odisha is known for poverty, illiteracy, and ignorance. There is poor access to health care too. People living in a miserable condition can’t even dream of getting basic eye care. Trilochan Netralaya has been working hard since last 10years to reach the unreached for whom health care is just a dream.
Dr. Shiva is not alone now. He is accompanied by another three full-time ophthalmologists and a team of 60+ odd paramedical and support staff.
The three units based in Sambalpur, Bhawanipatna, and Jagatsinghpur cater to the needs of 10million population in areas poorly served with 10000+ sight-restoring surgeries.
This passionate doctor aspires to provide world-class eye care to all classes of people in the community.
