Established in 1979, the Contact Lens Research Section and the clinic has state of the art equipment and infrastructure with world class expertise and internationally recognized contact lens clinicians
It has its own well established rigid gas permeable manufacturing lab since 1979 under National Society for the Prevention of Blindness-India.
Contact lenses are medical devices placed on the eyes, they require expert fitting and careful instruction, as well as care and compliance with recommended follow-up examinations to maintain the healthy functioning of your eyes.

Keratoconus is a thinning disorder of the cornea that causes distortion and reduced vision.
A condition whereby the lower cornea becomes thinner and the optic surface of the cornea becomes irregular and the vision becomes blurry.
Laser and Lasik refractive surgery (post lasik ectasia/regression) may result in residual refractive error. In the event that they can not be corrected with further procedures, fitting with specialised contact lenses may be required.
Post corneal transplantation (PK, DALK, LK) post RK results in high irregular astigmatism which requires these special lenses for visual rehabilitation same as in post corneal collagen cross linking/C3r
Lab is fully equipped with contact lens stocks, trials lenses of all types and inventory with self manufacturing rigid gas permeable lenses and contact lens care solutions.
All the trial lenses are maintained in good standards by regular disinfection procedures and replacement procedures. The clinic has well designed hand wash and lens care regimen teaching facilities.
Most of the trial lenses when ever applicable are disposable lenses and are disposed after single use in patient. A consistent record of good clinical practice is maintained which includes approvals by an ethics committee, informed patient consent and systematic documentation.
After care and regular follow up with proper documentation is maintained.
