Rajan Eye Care Hospital celebrated 18 years of helping the people of South India with their eyesight issues, recently. At a programme held to launch several new initiatives, Governor K Rosaiah congratulated the team that had managed to keep their vision of service clear, for all these years. “It is a pleasure to inaugurate the Rajan Retina Foundation, Rajan Femto Lasik Pavilion for Supervision, Novartis Centre of Excellence in Retina and release the book ‘For Your Eyes Only + World Class Eye Care’,” said Rosaiah.
He also commended Dr Mohan Rajan for introducing the state-of-the-art MIVS (Microincision Vitrectomy Surgery System) to facilitate early vision improvement and to make post operative time short. The commencement of Novartis Centre of Excellence for treatment of retinal-macular disorders and Rajan Femto Lasik Pavilion, was also done. “Introduction of these advanced technologies will give an added impetus to the enhanced facilities in treatment and diagnostic eye care offered by Rajan Eye Care,” he added.
Turning his attention to diabetic retinopathy, Rosaiah said, “It is estimated that presently 21.4 million individuals are affected by this deadly disease and it is likely to go up to 63.2 million by 2025 and every 5 diabetic in the world will be an Indian by 2025. Diabetic Retinopathy affects the blood vessels of retina and is one of the major causes of irreversible blindness in old age. Proper diet control and early diagnosis will help in reducing the cause of diabetic retinopathy. Creation of awareness among those suffering from diabetes and on the necessity of regular eye screening is necessary.”
Overwhelmed by the praise, Dr Mohan Rajan, Medical Director and world renowned surgeon, said that he was happy that they had been able to contribute to the wellness of people’s eye conditions and also contribute to society through a slew of out reach eye check camps. Dr Sujatha Mohan and several members of the hospital staff were also present.
