The clinical arm of TIO is the Tilganga Eye Hospital. 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.
24 HOUR EMERGENCY SERVICES
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 Tilganga Eye Hospital 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 Hospital manages on average about 900 patients each day.
