The eye is called the window to the soul. But people rarely admit to deficiencies in their eyesight until it's too late. The Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences at SRM Medical College Hospital & Research Centre is spearheaded by Prof. Dr. S.V. Swamy Raj, an experienced and qualified Ophthalmologist, with his able team of faculty.

The 24th of July 2014 was a historic day for the Department of Ophthalmology; as it was on this day that we forged a landmark MoU for Stem Cell research, with NCRM, Japan. In addition to corneal blindness, blinding retinal conditions such as Retinitis Pigmentosa and Age-related Macular Degeneration have become some of the leading causes of blindness in millions of people across India; for which stem cell therapies hold the key for a cure; for which the SRM-NCRM tie-up aims to endeavour.
The Department of Ophthalmology is well equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure to meet the requirements of our patients and students; comprising of dedicated consultation suites, optometrists, lecture halls, demonstration rooms, surgical wet lab, comprehensive investigative modalities, eye bank, etc.
