The "100,000 Lives" campaign is raising money needed for the Foundation's 2014 effort in hopes of reaching more than 100,000 people with diabetes in rural India who are at risk for, or may already be suffering from diabetic retinopathy — a condition that often leads to blindness if left untreated. Studies have shown that if diabetic retinopathy is detected and treated early, blindness can be averted up to 90 percent of the time.

Dr. V. K. Raju, founder and medical director of the Eye Foundation of America, said, "The Foundation was able to quickly develop early campaign success, reaching close to a $100,000 in donations, in order to begin efforts to carry out this latest initiative."

Donations are coming in from organizations and from personal philanthropists.  The Eye Foundation of America got a major gift from the Heart and Hand of the Handicapped (HHH of NJ-NY).

Mr. Jay Reddy, President of the Eye Foundation of America said, "Prevention is becoming one of our primary goal's here at The Eye Foundation.  The 100,000 lives campaign demonstrates the foundation's commitment toward a preventative approach as it includes teaching and screening for diabetic retinopathy."

The Eye Foundation has already made funds available for a diabetic diagnostic van that houses new technology.  Part of the technology includes the RETeval® by LKC Technologies.
