The Standard-chartered-Shroff Eyecare Academy had been established with the sole purpose of developing and nurturing professional human resource needed to prevent blindness and provide quality eye care to society.
Training and education are recognized as key factors that influence the reach, range and quality of eye health service delivery. Therefore, the Institute strives to provide the highest quality of training and education through the committed faculty, complemented by the most advanced technological and methodological tools.
Over the years, the academy has expanded the scope of education to train not only various cadres of ophthalmologists and optometrists but also paramedical staff and allied ophthalmic paramedics.
Since its inception, the education centre had trained 120 ophthalmologists coming from various parts of the country and abroad under the long-term programmes and more than 600 ophthalmologists have benefitted through various short term training programmes.
