Healthcare network Oxxy offers free eye tests in Bengaluru

Bengaluru, Aug 8 (IANS) Leading healthcare network Oxxy has begun offering free eye test in the Karnataka capital under the “Swastha Bharat” (Healthy India) platform.

“Our free eye screening, dedicated to former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, can be availed at home or at our centre in the city, with free pick up and drop facility,” Oxxy founder Pankaj Gupta said in a statement here on Friday.

The Delhi-based healthcare provider has so far screened 12 million people in 200 cities across the country through free camps

“Anyone requiring eye checkup can dial our number (0-99990-00102) anytime to avail the facility free of cost,” Gupta said.

As Kalam, who died on July 27 at Shillong in Meghalaya, favoured eye donation, the network’s initiative was intended to make healthcare affordable for all.

With one-lakh medical centres as part of its network across the country, Oxxy has tie-up with taxi aggregator Uber to provide free health check-up to its riders.
