Eye Care You Can Trust

The beauty of a sunset. The smile on a child’s face. The pages of a good book. Vision is an irreplaceable gift. Divya Prabha Eye Hospital is dedicated to the protection and preservation of vision. For children, who have a world to discover and explore. For adults, who desire to live independently and with dignity, at any age.

Divya Prabha had a small beginning as an Eye Clinic in 1998. Surgeries were performed at a nearby multi speciality hospital. Work on the new hospital building and Operation Theatre Complex was started in 1999. Mr. Subramaniya Iyer, former Chief Engineer PWD, was the person chosen to plan, coordinate and execute the project. The theatre complex was inagurated in March 2001 by Mrs. Vijayamma Gangadharan, founder chairman of Divya Prabha Medical Trust. The theatre complex was designed with a sterile air corridor with separate theatres for Cataract and Glaucoma surgeries, emergency surgeries and septic procedures. The theatres are equipped with UV lamps, fumigators, water and air purifiers for added safety.

To meet the exacting NABH, ISO and Kayakalp standards we planned a new building in 2020. It was envisaged was to be a perfect combination of form and function to offer the utmost in patient care, comfort, and convenience at an affordable price
