Having consistently maintained high quality standards for decades, today NIO has become the hospital of choice for patients with eye problems in & around Pune
NIO believes in delivering wholistic eye care. Hence, cataract not being the only potentially blinding problem, other eye diseases, like glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy screening is also carried out. Patient education and awareness about both glaucoma and other eye diseases is the first step towards treating these causes of irreversible blindness. NIO conducts patient education lectures on these topics.
Pertaining to paediatric eye care, free screening camps are conducted periodically focusing on children eye care. Problems like red eyes, frequent rubbing of eyes and glasses and squint are diagnosed and corrected.
