Department of Ophthalmology aims to provide comprehensive quality medical and surgical services to the rural and underserved community. Our eye care services are aligned with changing demands and technology.

Vision:

Working together to provide world class compassionate comprehensive ophthalmic care to the people of our community, to transfer knowledge and skill to future health care professionals and to translate research into novel innovations.

The department comprises of one functional unit offering free ophthalmic consultations, general health check-up and free cataract surgeries under District Blindness Control program since 2008. Daily average OPD is about 80-85 with 12-13 operations (Major and minor) are performed in a day.

We organize regular outreach eye camps in the community where people are screened for eye disease free of cost and referred to hospital if they need surgical intervention or IP care. As institutional social responsibility, every year we screen school children including orphanage schools nearby for refractive error and other eye disorders.  As a part of community training industrial visits are organized to create awareness on eye protection from chemical and other industrial injuries. Blindness prevention awareness programs on glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy for public and hospital staffs is conducted frequently. Eye donation awareness campaign is being done as a mission to motivate people to donate their eyes after death.

The department has necessary teaching learning facilities for undergraduates as well as postgraduates as per MCI norms. The department is running speciality clinics to widen the department profile. Every Friday, a vitreo-retinal surgeon extends his speciality services in between 10 am – 12 pm in Retina Clinic. Other speciality clinic such as cornea clinic, glaucoma clinic & squint clinic are conducted by the experienced faculties of department.

Research aptitude of undergraduates is encouraged by undertaking ICMR-STS project. In last 3 years, two ICMR-STS projects have been accepted from our Department.
