  • Dr. RohanChariwala who was sent to International Centre for Eye Health, London did a survey of blindness in the area as a part of his thesis work. This survey shows that the need for eye care is comparable with other parts of the country – though Gujarat has done better in eye care, this area is still underserved and the other major finding is that corneal blindness is double then other parts of the country. So in effect, this means that the need in the area is tremendous and we will need to focus on corneal transplant work also.
  • Dr. Rohan Chariwala who has been sent to International Centre for Eye Health, London is here in Mandvi for one month for a aurvey of blindness in the area as a part of his thesis work. This survey will tell us about the present blindness situation in the area and will give us a guideline about the work that needs to be done and so we will be able to plan the work better.
  • Dr. Rohan has come back upon successful completion of his M.Sc. course in Oct. 2011 and has joined the team. We have started research activities also.
  • Medicines and spectacles are also made available at subsidized rates in the hospital itself. Good no. of patients are taking benefits of the facility
