Dr. Tulsi Das was the DIRECTOR FOUNDER of PGIMER, Chandigarh Dr. Om Parkash Satyam Netralaya started with a rented building in 1968. It has grown in leaps and bounds keeping pace with the expectations to provide par excellent comprehensive diverse eye care to people from all over the world.

The present set up since 1983 has been great and rapid developments in the different sub specialties of ophthalmology with the Netralaya keeping pace and acting as torch bearer in many Ophthalmologic developments.

The belief lies in providing state-of- the-art equipment and facilities, adopting latest proven technologies and methods for total eye care. We believe in equal focus on the eyes as well as the patient. Patient’s complete satisfaction and well-being through the total involvement of the hospital staff at all the level is what we aim for.

Prof. Dr. Om Parkash, the founder, had to his credit more than 1, 90,000 eye surgeries.

In the early days of Intra Ocular Lens Implantation there were two schools of thoughts. One school of thought in India believed in Anterior Chamber/Iris claw Intra Ocular Lens Implantation where as Dr. Om Parkash had the vision of believing & implanting the Intra Ocular Lens in the Posterior Chamber In the Bag.

How true and perfect was the clinical acumen of this pioneer of “POSTERIOR CHAMBER IN THE BAG IOL IMPLANTATION”? It is because almost all ophthalmologists use this technique nowadays. Dr. Om Parkash left for his heavenly abode on Dec. 21st 1985.

Dr. Rohit Om Parkash who is the third generation into ophthalmology heads the cataract unit. The Cataract unit is one of the most advanced in the world. Dr. Rohit is one of the earliest ones in 1995 to start with phacoemulsification, the latest technique for Cataract removal.

Dr. Om Parkash Satyam Netralaya is the only institution in North India which is using the latest technology of the “TORSIONAL EMULSIFICATION” employing 2.2mm incision micro coaxial technique with IQ Intra Ocular Lens {IOL} / RESTOR multifocal IOL implantation. This is possible because of the installation of INFINITI VISION SYSTEM, which is the most advanced Phacoemulsification unit in the world for cataract surgery. Torsional Emulsification is a much safer & efficient technique than the traditional phacoemulsification technique.
