From MD’s Desk
Four decades ago a philanthropist and a great visionary laid the seed of what is today known as Venu Eye Institute & Research Centre. Late Dr. R.K. Seth, an eminent ophthalmologist and Founder of the Venu Charitable Society, realised the limitation of a private practice. His desire to spread its reach to the needy, overarching social and economic hurdles, created Venu.
Today, as we look around, we see a proliferation in health care and related sectors, with the government, the insurance sector, as also the private sector creating a health industry. With our burgeoning population, it is definitely the need of the hour. Most sectors have kept pace with technology and have kept themselves abreast of the best in the world – but unfortunately the availability of services is skewed. Despite the tremendous growth in eye care service delivery, the services are limited not just geographically, but also in affordability, to a few. The irony is the needless suffering of the vast majority of patients. It is this gap that Venu seeks to address.
Venu currently has 5 Satellite Hospitals and 8 Vision Centres in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Uttranchal and Rajasthan. The Base Hospital at New Delhi is a referral and teaching hospital for all cadres of eye care personnel.
Venu Eye Institute & Research Centre is recognised as a leading Eye Hospital in India. It has continued to make quality eye care available, accessible, affordable and sustainable for four decades.
All this has been possible because of the trust and faith of our patients and donors and the hard work and dedication of our staff.
I sincerely thank all and hope their guidance and support will grow with each passing year and help us realise our Founder, Late Dr. R. K. Seth’s dream that no one need go blind because of the lack of quality eye care.
