L V Prasad Eye Institute is a comprehensive
eye health facility located in Hyderabad, India.
Founded in October 1986 by eminent ophthalmologist Dr Gullapalli
N Rao, the Institute has
evolved into a world class organization, with six main areas
of focus: comprehensive patient
care, clinical research, sight enhancement and rehabilitation,
community eye health, education,
and product development.
From the beginning our focus has been on extending equitable
and efficient eye care to the
underprivileged. The Institute's charter aims at providing
50 percent of its surgical services
free of cost to the economically disadvantaged. In collaboration
with the World
Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for
the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB),
we have designed and implemented many innovative community
eye health programs. Each day, 200
people who cannot afford eye care, receive care from some of
the best eye health professionals,
while hundreds more benefit from LVPEI's rural affiliates and
satellite clinics in urban slums.
The cornerstone of progress in medical science is research and
LVPEI collaborates with premier institutions globally in this area. Our research program takes
pride in putting cutting edge
technology, like stem cell transplantation, to clinical application.
We have also developed
innovative applications of lasers to treat corneal and retinal
diseases, while evolving
unconventional approaches to glaucoma treatment and conducting
frontline research into
the molecular genetic basis of eye diseases
