Arasan Eye Hospital is offering cataract surgery training to trainee doctors since its inception in 1997.
Every week, free eye camps were conducted for the benefit of the rural community. A separate charitable wing, Save Sight Foundation was established in the year 2000 to streamline the outreach activity. Arasan is the only institution in Erode accredited by NBE.
Rapid changes have happened in the field of Ophthalmology . Technological innovations are happening at a faster pace. Every Ophthalmologist has to keep abreast with this change .
