Bansara Eye Care Centre (BECC), Shillong, Meghalaya
BECC started as a small vision centre in 1980 by the first local ophthalmologist to supplement the single government department. In 1992 a formal charitable society was formed by the group called – Society for Promotion of Eye Care and Sight (SPECS) focusing on eye health for everyone with equity and quality.
Bansara Eye Care has, over the last few years, made giant strides into alleviating the problems of blindness. The reason BECC have been able to make a contribution to healthcare and to the people of the state is because of BECC’s efforts at eradicating avoidable blindness by bringing state-of-the-art technology to the common man and by combining a holistic approach with the motto.
