To be a truly global healthcare organization with best practices from different sectors while relying on continuous innovation and cutting-edge technology to win.
Dr. Agarwal’s Eye Hospital was founded by Late Dr.J. Agarwal (recipient of the Padma Bhushan award) and his wife Dr. T. Agarwal in Chennai, India, in 1957. What was initially an eye clinic and their home evolved into a modern eye hospital in 1976. The founders used their creative vision to build the first Agarwal Eye Hospital in the shape of a human eye and it soon became a prominent landmark on the city map. Years later, their unique effort received global recognition when it was mentioned by the American franchise “Ripley’s believe it or not”.
The flagship centre at Chennai soon became one of the premier institutions for globally recognized eye care and treatment serving patients from around the country and beyond. The Hospital also attracted doctors from around the world who wanted to learn from the experienced teams about the latest advances in eye care. The institution gave birth to many modern day inventions in the field like Glued IOL (to treat patients with complicated lens problems) and PDEK (an ultra-modern form of eye transplants).
