Good Institutes for Eye Care
In our last meeting with activists and sympathizers of ‘Swasthya Siksha Unnayan’, some of our friends from North Bengal have suggested to publish names and addresses of the institutes where common people get proper treatment with cheap or reasonable rate instead of spoiling their precious money to ‘dishonest treatment nexus’.
You know that ‘Sramajibee Hospitals’ located at Belur, Srirampur, Sarberia, Ukhra, Ranaghat and Kopai; ‘Sramajibee Swasthya Udyog’ at Chengail; ‘Vaskar Rao Jana Swasthya Committee’ at Agarpara; ‘Amader Haspatal’ at Chatna; ‘Bhalopahar Dispensary’ at Bandwan etc. pro-people initiatives are going on. Here I am discussing on treatment of very sensitive eye related problems and diseases.
In pursuance of popular model of ‘Sankar Netralaya’, Chennai and ‘Arvind Eye Care System’, Madurai, different Eye Hospitals are established with all modern facilities under a single roof. ‘Disha’s experiment was successful at Barackpore, after that, it spread all over the state. ‘Susruta’, ‘Silverline’, ‘Netralay’, ‘Priyanbada Birla Eye Hospital’ etc. are coming up. Most of them are corporate type. ‘Dr. Nihar Munshi Foundation’ etc. shared large clienteles from upper-middle class section. RIO and other Medical Colleges have advanced facilities and superb experts but they remain overcrowded, shabby and patient–unfriendly. Here I am naming three institutes who are working with reputation on patient care and satisfaction.
