Description
Aravind Eye Hospitals were started with a mission to eradicate needless blindness. Over the last 30 years, Aravind has contributed extensively to prevention of blindness in the country. In view of the existing backlog of cataract and other causes of blindness, India requires many more institutions of this kind.

Aravind Eye Hospitals has gained national and international reputation for its service orientation, modern ophthalmic techniques and its community-based outreach activities which deliver quality eye care to the rural masses. Its operational research has practical applications in the formulation of effective blindness prevention programmes. To take up the challenge of blindness, Aravind has recognised the need to develop human resources - ophthalmologists, paramedics, eye care managers and support service personnel.

Several training programmes have been designed to develop ophthalmic manpower. Catering to all levels of ophthalmic teaching and training, these are intended not only for ophthalmologists but also for ophthalmic technicians, opticians, clinical assistants, outreach coordinators and health care managers. These training programmes are both long term and short term, and some of these are affiliated to local universities. The postgraduate clinical courses are affiliated to Dr. MGR Medical University, Chennai. The postgraduate courses in Optometry & Ophthalmic Assistance are affiliated to Madurai Kamaraj University. Apart from these, a six week training course in the maintenance of ophthalmic surgical instruments and other equipment for technicians is also offered.

Dissemination of knowledge and skills in eye care will not only satisfy the needs of the institution but also take care of the needs of the country. Aravind has also recognised the need for transition from conventional surgical procedures to state-of-the-art techniques in management of cataracts. It offers short term training courses in IOL microsurgery, lasers in diabetic retinopathy management and glaucoma diagnosis and therapy and also a five day course in instrument maintenance for ophthalmologists.

Continuing Medical Education programmes and workshops are offered on a regular basis. The institution along with Lions Aravind Institute of Community Ophthalmology works with several eye hospitals in India and abroad to improve their capacity to provide high volume, high quality care and enabling them to become financially self-reliant in the long run.

Aravind Eye Care System has extended its activities by expanding the research facilities and has started Ph.D programme in ophthalmology, genetics and immunology for medical graduates in affiliation with the Tamil Nadu Dr. MGR Medical University; Ph.D in affiliation with Madurai Kamaraj University in Biomedical science for non-medical graduates, and Ph.D in Biotechnology and Humanities and social sciences in affliation with Indian Institute of Technology, Chennai.
