Facility for Phaco training

With the visionary efforts of Dr. VK Raju, MD and the Sankurathri Foundation, ‘Srikiran’ was established in 1993, offering quality eye care in the region that was accessible to everyone. During its humble beginnings on January 21st, Srikiran had only 26 beds and a total staff of only 9. With the dedicated teamwork of the staff and firm commitment of the founders, the Institute has been able to grow and become unparalleled in its achievements.
