Baroda Children Eye Care and Squint Centre is our attempt to provide an exclusive set up for the eye care of the children and patients with squint or other eye movement disorders.
Our centre exemplifies the emergence of Pediatric ophthalmology and Strabismus as a well established subspecialty of ophthalmology. We work endlessly in pursuit of excellence in pediatric eye care and aim to contribute to the science and art of Pediatric ophthalmology and Strabismus. We uphold the principles of high ethical standards and compassionate care at affordable cost. In our centre the treatment will never be denied to a patient with vision threatening disease for the lack of money.
We are steadfast to achieve the international goal of Our Vision - Elimination of avoidable blindness. “The Right to Sight.”
