Vision Centres, Aravind-Tirunelveli

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).
