ARAVIND EYE HOSPITAL - TIRUPUR
Aravind's community centre has been functioning at Tirupur since 2006. The centre catered to around 30,000 outpatient visits a year and provided both basic and advanced ophthalmic services. The need for a complete ophthalmic unit to provide better delivery of services was felt and moreover, a sizeable number of patients who come to Aravind - Coimbatore are from Tirupur. This paved way for the opening of a new facility at Dharapuram Road K. Chettipalayam, Tirupur on October 17, 2010. The hospital complex including the residential facility extends over an area of about 22000 sq.ft and has a bed capacity of 23. The centre is targeted to serve 55,000 outpatients and almost 5000 surgeries a year. Services available include management of refractive errors and cataract, Yag Capsulotomy, Medical Retina and glaucoma. In addition to this, a well equipped optical processing laboratory to deliver world class spectacles and contact lens is available.
Aravind - Thirupur handled 67,826 outpatient visits and performed 4,779 surgeries from April 2016- March 2017
