The adaptation of specialist education to meet the challenges of rural health has become an emphasis and a major need.

The main objective of this Institute of Opthalmology is to impart education of the highest standard in the art and science of Ophthalmic Medicine and Surgery in a holistic approach to equip the persons involved with the spirit of service in curing blindness and promoting the eye health in full recognition of the moral and spiritual basis of life, in relation to eye health.

The training that is offered in the Institute of Opthalmology is so designed, that when the candidates graduate, they are able to provide total medical and surgical eye care independently, either in a rural area or in our urban Institution. They are enhanced to evolve strategies for outreach programme to implement community eye health care to prevent blindness among infants and adults in addition to restructuring the life-styles of the incurable blind.
