The Story

In the year 1998, Dr. Anand Saxena founded Shri Aurobindo Nethralaya (SAMRC) with a motto to eradicate blindness and make this world a beautiful place to those who are still in darkness. They realized the necessity of a team, an organization to overcome the insurmountable load of blindness in our country. Today, we are a leading non-profit organization dedicated to provide eye-care and rehabilitate people of all ages suffering from ophthalmic problems. In this journey, Shri Aurobindo Nethralaya (SAMRC) has proved itself as one of the best tertiary eye care institute in South Eastern India.

In the year 2001, Shri Aurobindo Nethralaya (SAMRC) used to serve only 25 to 50 OPD where as in 2016 it inaugurated 3 storied building to reach out more OPD. We converted our first building into IPD department generating 150-200 patients per day with 10-25 patients in IPD per day .

Now, in current years we have served around 300 OPD with 25-45 IPD per day including outreach patients.

Beside these we have a state-of-the-art infrastructure which complies with the Latest International Standards.
