Asirvad Development Foundation (ADF) as part of its charity activities to the community has given priority to eye related diseases in the health sector. In a mutual understanding with Uma Eye Clinic, Annanagar, Chennai, ADF envisages to perform free eye screening and treatment to the deserving poor community in the slums of Chennai city. Vision Foundation, a charitable trust of Uma Eye Clinic has joined hand in hand with ADF and has agreed to conduct eye screening camps at no cost.

In the morning hours of 04th December 2010, the Managing Trustee of ADF and CMD of AMPL, Mr. S. V. Raja Vaidyanathan by lighting the lamp opened the charity services at Chindadaripet, Chennai.
