OPHTHALMOLOGY

Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with the diseases and surgery of the visual pathways, including the eye, brain, and areas surrounding the eye, such as the lacrimal system and eyelids.

  • A CD library has also been established for them to learn new, innovative surgical procedures.
  • Several CMEs are conducted by the department in the field of Neuro Ophthalmology, Oculoplasty, Immunology, Paediatric Ophthalmology, Orbit, etc.
  • PG students are also posted to higher learning centres.
  • The staff of Ophthalmology is actively involved in developing integrated ophthalmic care, catering to patients through various camps.
