Rochiram Thadani School for the Hearing Handicapped is a school for hearing impaired students consisting of 225 students. Since most of these students come from poor socio-economic background, their primary health care is often neglected. Dr Nita Shah and her team organized a free eye screening camp for all the students. For students needing further check-ups, she provided the same at her clinic. She also addressed parents and teachers about the various issues related to vision problems, eye care and exercises for good vision. Dr Nita Shah was also instrumental in arranging a donation for hearing aids for 31 students, each costing almost Rs 30000-Rs 35000.
Dr Nita Shah has been treating members of the Sion Wadala Kurla Chembur Mahila Mandal free of charge for the last 20-25 years for any eye related ailments.
