Your problem that we solve

Cataract surgery is  the most commonly performed surgery in ophthalmology, and   all ophthalmologists are expected to be reasonably proficient in this surgery at the end of their training.

The need for better curriculum and well-structured goals for surgical training during residency training cannot be overemphasized.

Our  solution to your problem 

Sri Sankaradeva Nethralaya offers short term training course in SICS surgery. Sri Sankaradeva Nethralaya has a Structured Outreach Programme and under these we frequently conduct eye camps in rural areas where we detect patients requiring surgery and subsequently bring them to our hospital for surgery. The entire cost of treatment (including investigation procedures and surgery with Intra Ocular Lens implant) is borne by our institution.

Postgraduate Course in Ophthalmology – DNB (Diplomate of National Board) with affiliation of National Board of Examinations, New Delhi under the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare of Govt. of India, is conducted by the Institute every year. It also offers 1-year Fellowship in General Ophthalmology to Postgraduate students.

The Institute got its DNB accreditation in the year 2000 and since then its alumni awarded with DNB have been engaged in the respective departments of the institution as well as in other institutions in India and abroad.

The institution has also set up a state-of-the-art Wetlab for surgical training. It is providing technical training in different surgical procedures to doctors of various departments of the State Governments of the Northeast and other States under National Programme for Control of Blindness (NPCB) of Govt. of India.
