Aravind Eye Hospital, Theni

As the volume of patients began to increase beyond capacity, Dr. V and his team decided to expand. Based on the area from where the highest numbers of patients were coming to Aravind, the next place of expansion was decided. Accordingly, the second hospital was established in Theni.  Situated along the Western Ghats 80 Kms west of Madurai, Aravind -Theni was opened in 1985. It serves an area within a 50 km radius, including Kottayam, Pathanamthitta and Idukki districts in Kerala. It has facilities to accommodate 123 free and 40 paying patients. The hospital is an accredited teaching institution.

In the year ending March 2018, Aravind-Theni handled 2,43,184 outpatient visits and performed 15,785 surgeries.

Vision Centres, Aravind-Theni

Vision centres are small, permanent facilities that provide eye care services to remote and rural communities. Manned by ophthalmic technicians, these telemedicine-assisted centres allow patients in rural areas to consult ophthalmologists at the base hospital, thus eliminating the need for patients to travel to hospital (unless more advanced treatment is needed).
