Observing World Pathology Day
Aravind Eye Hospital, Madurai observed World Pathology Day with an awareness exhibition for general public and staff in the hospital premises. Dr. G. Natchiar, Director Emeritus, AECS inaugurated the same. The exhibition aimed to showcase role of pathology in eye care and how the department evolved at Aravind over the years.
Eye is the window for mind as well as general wellbeing. In some diseases, eyes show first signs before they are manifested in other parts of the body. Creating awareness about this and understanding such changes help us identify many diseases in the initial stage itself. The exhibition had many posters, models and charts with relevant information for the public. The exhibition was well received both by the patients as well staff . The entire event was the result of a collective effort put in by the staff of Ocular Pathology, Orbit, Ocular Oncology and Laboratory services.
