Chiyaan Vikram has joined hands with Dr Agarwal’s, one of the leading eye hospitals in Chennai, to urge people to pledge their eyes, as the country “badly needs a large number of eye donors” to help the visually challenged.

Launching an eye donation campaign in Chennai Tuesday, the actor said, “Dr Agarwal’s hospital is doing a lot of good services. I am happy and proud to be associated with them in this noble cause.”

The actor, who had pledged his eyes two years ago and had asked his fans to follow the suit, added: “I realised the difficulties faced by the visually challenged while acting in Kasi. Let’s add light to their lives by donating eyes”.

Producer Kalaipuli S Thanu, who too was present at the campaign, said he would soon make a short film on eye donation and would present it to the Dr Agarwal’s hospital so that they could create awareness on the crucial issue.

Thanking Vikram and Thanu, chairman and managing director of the hospital chain Dr Amar Agarwal said, “the top actor is not feeling well today. But still, he attended the event just because his commitment for a cause.”
