A private institution with a reputation for excellence, Kasturba Medical College was founded by the late Dr. T.M.A. Pai, who established over 40 educational institutions and teaching hospitals. The college provides a wide range of training programs, and students specializing in care are only a small part of total enrollment. The college also services as a hospital, providing excellent service to the people in the Manipal area.
Operation Eyesight became involved in 1977 when our donors purchased a vehicle for the college’s outreach program for surgical eye camps. We also helped fund a remodeled out-patient department, allowing for the treatment of all kinds of blindness.
