Community Ophthalmology Programme

The eye department has been very much involved with the community through programs such as ‘crusade against childhood blindness’, which is a pediatric eye program aimed at elementary school children and inaugurated by former President APJ Abdul Kalam. Children are screened in their schools free of charge and brought to KGH if they require further treatment. In addition to this, the department also runs free eye camps and conducts free surgeries.
