Who we Are

Mission & Vision

The idea and need of a charitable trust was born out of the necessity of providing vision to all sections of the rural and urban population who are unable to access any primary eye care. As we know, eyes are meant to appreciate the beauty of the world, experience the joy of learning new activities and undertake new adventures, but there are medically-deprived population, comprised of young school children, who wouldn’t have normal visual & personal development without early diagnosis & treatment.

Aim & Objectives

Nayonika Eye Care Charitable Trust (NECT) is committed to provide comprehensive, affordable/costless and quality eye care services to the neediest and to make India a better nation with complete eye care for all citizens by marching towards achieving various goals discussed and raised by the World Health Organisation (WHO).


We strive hard to provide quality healthcare by considering”Your Good Vision as our Mission” to restore patients’ sight and transform their life for betterment.


By marching towards “Vision 2020”, we aim to accomplish “Good Vision for all”.
