The clinical arm of TIO is the Surgicentre. It’s a constant hub of activity with patients forming long lines for service from early morning. From TIO’s inception, interventions and modalities such as modern cataract, corneal transplant, glaucoma, vitreoretinal, orbital, strabismus and refractive surgeries have been offered.
A 24-hour emergency service department ensures those suffering from an eye injury or infection can receive treatment at any hour of the day or night.
The Surgicentre generates 100% of its running costs through patient fees. A cost recovery scheme utilizes tier pricing and cross-subsidy where poorer patients receive indirect assistance from those who can afford to pay for treatment. TIO believes that all patients should receive the same high-quality care regardless of their means and background.
TIO’s Out-Patient Department (OPD) is where modern ophthalmic care is given to the general public. The Surgicentre manages on average about 600 patients each day.
