The Venu Outreach Model
Venu’s three-tier structure is geared towards delivering Community Ophthalmology in the most accessible and effective way possible.
The three levels of delivery comprise:
- The Primary Level: Vision Centres, Fixed Peripheries and Screening Camps
- The Secondary Level: Satellite Hospitals
- The Tertiary Level
The Primary Level
The primary level consists of 13 fixed Vision Centres, which provide primary eye care services including refraction and post-operative care. These Vision Centres operate from both the Base as well as Satellite Hospitals, covering the entire district of each satellite with a varying population of 50,000 to 1,00,000.
At these centres, patients identified for surgery are taken to either the Base Hospital or the Satellite Hospital under the purview of which the Vision Centre is functioning.
For post-operative follow ups the patients visit the Vision Centres.
For areas that cannot be covered through regular peripheral visits, surgical and diagnostic camps help to reach this much needed service to under-served or unserved areas.
Regular screening camps in the district help in spreading awareness about eye diseases.
Additionally, our teams seek out schools for the screening of the young with the aim of reducing visual impairment among children, and enhancing community awareness.
The Secondary Level
There are five Satellite Hospitals at the secondary level equipped to do routine surgeries, including cataract with the phaco emulsification technique. There are well-qualified ophthalmologists and paramedics permanently stationed at each of these hospitals. Specialists from the New Delhi Base Hospital visit these hospitals at least once a week.
