Appasamy Eye Hospital

Poor eyesight that is left untreated can cause blindness, forcing adults into unemployment. Vision Care Opticians has established a vertically integrated operation that includes its appasamy eye hospital, complete with digital eye examinations and surgeries, an optical dispensing unit and a complete ophthalmic spectacles manufacturing unit.

Vision Care Opticians conducts a number of eye camps and monthly eye clinics. Vision Care manages to conduct 10 to 30 surgeries per day in its out-patient department. From experience, the number of patients requiring medical attention is 20%, those requiring cataract surgery is 40%, whereas those requiring corrective eyeglasses are about 60%.
