It was Late Dr. Bharat Prasad Kashyap, Professor and Head of the Department (Eye) R.M.C.H Ranchi who realized the grave situation of corneal blind people. He met Dr. Peter Anderson of Australia in one of the blind relief camps and the ball started rolling. With the help of the Australian doctor Late Prof. Kashyap could procure six corneas from Australia. Prof. Bharat Prasad Kashyap grafted those four corneas on 1st Jan. 1979. Looking at the positive results a number of efforts were made to revise the corneal grafting but for some or the other reasons nothing actually materialized. Though Lot of Eye banks came into existence and but all of them remained defunct for years.
Later in the year 1991 Dr Birendra Prasad Kashyap and Dr Bharti Kashyap formed The Kashyap’s Memorial Eye Baank and charitable trust, which got associated with Eye Bank Association of India. The very first Life member from the whole Eastern India Kashyap Memorial Eye Bank and charitable trust received its membership no. LEI. As the time passed the working personnel headed by Dr. Bharti Kashyap, the managing trustee and medical director of the eye bank trust increased and the Eye Bank got the Institutional membership in 1996.
In the year 1995 after a long gap of 16 years the eye bank got the 1st locally retrieved Pair of eyes of Mr. H.N. Prasad who had already pledged his eyes before his demise. Since then the Eye Bank Trust has kept on receiving donors responses. Presently the eye bank has 315 eye donations to its credit. To promote people to come forward donating their eyes for the noble human cause the trust regularly organizes several programmes. Netra DaanMahadaan is one to name with.
