Community outreach programmes are the integral part of the day today activities of Dr. Tony’s Superspeciality Eye Institute. Inspired and motivated by the words of our chairman Padmasree Dr. S Tony Fernandez, that “no person should be deprived of any essential eye care services due to his poor economic conditions or because of the inability to access the services”, the community out-reach department of the hospital is actively engaged in availing the eye care services at the lowest cost to the poor sections in the community. The main objectives of our outreach programmes are to eradicate the avoidable or needless blindness in the society, to promote the eye health education in the society, to create awareness about the modern eye care services and its scope, to introduce the services and facilities of our hospital and also to promote the interpersonal and leadership skills of the staff.
