The CURRAE EYE CARE PENSIONER’S CLUB aims at providing eye care facilities to the pensioners at a much reduced cost. The facilities include free consultations with top eye specialists and 50% discount on the Cataract Surgery Charges.

Mr. Suhas Aradhye, MD of Currae Eye Hospital said during the launch of the initiative, “This gesture of ours is to pay tribute to our pension holders in the society for their contribution and effort to the society and government during their active career in a govt. or private organization.” He also added, “We have initiated this scheme as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to reduce their out of pocket expenditure towards their healthcare”

Mr. Aradhye also confirmed their commitment to extend this scheme to any bonafide pension holder from any part of Eastern India. He also said that regular free check-up camps will be organized throughout the year to reach out to as many pensioners as possible. The scheme will be also made available to various govt. departments who provide medical facilities to their retired employees and thus reduce cost to the govt. also.

While the registration process will be open every day, the pensioners can get the benefits of the scheme during 7 to 15th of each month till December 2016.

Veteran Actor, Shri Soumitra Chattopadhyay said, “I get very emotional when corporates and society think of providing any good service to senior citizens and pensioners. I wish most of us should recognize each and every hard working worker or officer in any sector by doing something for them when they retire from their active career. The burden of meeting the healthcare expenses for elderly people is immense. Some of them are covered by some kind of medical insurance but majority have to bear the expenses on their own. I applaud the efforts of Currae Eye care Hospital for this scheme.

Currae Eye Hospital have two facilities – One in AJC Bose Road in Kolkata and the other one is at Madhyamgram.
