Aravind Eye Hospital, Theni

As the volume of patients in the first hospital at Madurai 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 the second hospital was established in Theni in 1985. It has facilities to accommodate 123 free and 40 paying patients. The hospital is an accredited teaching institution.

In the year ending March 2019, Aravind-Theni handled over 254,650 outpatient visits and performed over 16,300 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).
