VISION
To provide sight to visually impaired through collection and distribution of corneas from volunteer eye donations.

MISSION
To educate people about the importance of eye donation. To register and maintain a database of eye donors, To recover corneas posthumously from registered donors, and To distribute the corneas to the needy people.

The Chiranjeevi Eye Bank was started in the year 1998 to fulfill the service vision of its founder, the well known Telugu film star Mr. Chiranjeevi. The first ever appeal for eye donation to the public through media by Chiranjeevi resulted in an overwhelmingly spectacular response of over fifty thousand people pledging their eyes for posthumous use to provide vision to the visually impaired.

The Trust through the intensive efforts of the Eye bank has collected 775 pairs of eyes from the deceased donors who had pledged their eyes and provided vision to 1550 people who were visually impaired.

The Trust wishes to appoint counselors in each district to create awareness about eye donation and encourage the immediate family members of those donors who pledge their eyes to extend their cooperation to collect the eyes on the demise of such donors.

The Eye Bank along with the Blood bank is administered by the Chiranjeevi Charitable Trust, located at Jubilee Hills,  Hyderabad .
