ABOUT NEORETINA > Why Choose Neoretina

As most efforts and resources for the prevention of blindness in India – including the training of postgraduates – are focused on cataract disorders, the country lacks an effective service delivery model for retinal disorders, ocular trauma and childhood blindness. Due to this lack of focus, Andhra Pradesh has no retinal specialists or services in all the districts of Telengana and Rayalaseema – a large unmet need for specialty eye hospitals.

Corporate eye hospitals are currently busy catering to common eye care issues such as refraction, LASIK and cataract surgery. This leaves little time, motivation and skilled personnel to address complex diseases like diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, age-related macular degeneration and childhood blindness.

The NeoRetina Eye Institute (NEI) aims to bridge this gap by positioning itself as a tertiary care referral eye institute with an emphasis on retinal disorders. NEI aims to be among the top eye institutes in Andhra Pradesh, with the best in infrastructure, equipment, and medical and surgical skills.

NEI is manned by an experienced team of eye surgeons, optometrists, trained nurses and technicians led by a core team of experts. The institute also has a state-of-the-art operation theatre complex equipped with the latest operating microscopes, microsurgical equipment and anesthesia workstations that is designed to handle both routine and complex retinal surgeries. Finally, with a constructed area of 8,500 sft, an inpatient facility, and surgeons and staff on call around the clock, NEI can address the full range of complex vitreoretinal retinal disorders as well as ocular trauma, emergencies, besides providing general ophthalmology services.
