Consultancy, Capacity Building and Training

Eye care services do not operate in a vacuum. Rather, it should be viewed in the broader context of the society for which it is intended. Hence, development of skilled manpower oriented to the needs of the community is vital in our crusade against needless blindness. In contrast to an individualized health-care system, a community approach to eye care aims at improving the eye health of the entire community.

– Dr. G. Venkataswamy
