Akshara Eye Hospitals is partnering with IIM Bangalore to conduct free eye screening camp for the underprivileged. Please pass on the message to people you see in your neighbourhood who can benefit from the same.
Eye screening and correction camp conducted on 2nd October 2014 at BTM Layout,Bangalore with Rotary Club.. First in a series of outreach programs to be powered by Akshara Eye Hospitals.
“Screening camps for eye diseases is key”, “Differentiate through quality of service”, “Follow your vision of social outreach and education”, “A class surgeons for A class clinical outcomes” .. these were some of the messages conveyed by the guests of honor at the inauguration of our maiden center in Bangalore. A big thank you to all those who turned up to back the hospital and the promise it holds. For those who could not make it, some photos and videos will soon follow, but for now we have a snippet from the media coverage.
Startups are great…for everybody! Startups re-energize, change perspectives, create new value propositions, raise the bar for incumbents, challenge conventions and better the systems. And so starting up, though exciting can be challenging, even unnerving at times. Perhaps more so in healthcare where age old practices and value systems need serious rethinking and pushing back. Its not easy, but no change has ever been..and that’s what drives this new kid on the healthcare block.
Akshara Eye Hospitals conducts free screening for South Bangalore police and traffic police teams.
DIABETIC EYE DISEASE:
What is it?
It refers to eye problems people with diabetes may have, which include:
DIABETIC RETINOPATHY: Damage to the blood vessels in the retina. This is the most common complication.
GLAUCOMA: Damage to the optic nerve.
CATARACT: Clouding of the lens of the eye.
THERE ARE OFTEN NO EARLY WARNING SIGNS !!
The longer you have diabetes, the higher your risk of getting diabetic eye disease.
This can be detected very easily by a comprehensive dilated eye examination by your Eye Doctor.
