Vision and Philosophy
Our philosophy is very simple, we believe that whatever we are is because of the patients who have invested their faith and trust in us - and what comes from the people must ultimately go to the people many times over completing the full circle and fulfilling the purpose of our E xistence. Our involvement in this process ensures that patients are not viewed as just consumers, or stakeholders or even potential investors, but the very reason for our existence.
Sri Venkateswara Nethralaya(SVN)R is now entering its 16th year and has applied itself towards every aspect of Superspeciality eye care. Worldover, major eye centres are undergoing a transformation where patients are now no longer admitted for overnight stay in the hospital. Large Eye centres requiring Large buildings are now a thing of the past. Internationally, most eye care centres have adopted latest technology & are now getting transformed into small and compact day care centres as advancements in surgical technology enable patients to be discharged for home care 10-15 minutes after surgery after a short admission. Our Hospital takes the concept of "small is beautiful" many steps further and our hospital is not only smaller, but safer, compact, convenient and effective.
WIth the introduction of the in-house surgical facility from jan 2005, induction of Diabetic green laser treatment from May 2005,YAG Laser Treatment for "after cataract" following cataract surgery in 2006, Ophthalmic Ultrasound Facility , Imaging Slit lamp Facility since 2006, Transcanalicular Laser Dacryocystorhinostomy(Laser DCR) in 2007, Nidek Lasik Laser for treatment of short sight, long sight, and Astigmatism in 2009, Optopol Blue on Yellow Colour Short wave automated Perimetry for early diagnosis of Glaucoma, Legacy motorized Zoom Operating microscope with Video recording facility & Assistant Viewing facility for teaching and demonstration purposes to IOL and phaco trainees, Turbo-Vit Combined phacoemulsifier with Posterior Segment Vitrectomy upto 5000 cuts with twin endoilluminator and Diathermy and VFI/FGX capabilities, Reinverter & 23G instrumentation for sutureless Retinal Surgeries all in 2010, TopCon Fundus Imaging and Fluoroscien Angiography System in 2013 for advanced diagnosis of Retinal Diseases, SVN has endeavoured year after year to bring about the latest and the most sophisticated facility from the world over in order to serve its patients in this part of Bangalore. In 2014, we have renovated our entire hospital adding up another floor with additional facilities like conference room, Laser Surgical Suite, Deluxe airconditioned suite (WiFi enabled) and a host of value added services which complements our philosophy of "Small is Beautiful". In 2019, We have introduced yet another diagnostic imaging modality - Optical Coherence Tomography at a cost of over 25000 USD which is useful for imaging a wide range of diseases both in the Anterior Segment (Front Portion of the Eye) as well as the Posterior Segment (Back Portion of the Eye). We have also introduced a Non Contact Tonometer (Reichert Technologies, USA) which is capable of measuring the pressure inside the eye without touching the eyeball. This is extremely useful to measure the Intraocular pressure in patients who may have to undergo repeated measurements at different times of the day to assess diurnal variations.
Indeed, For Patients in South West Bangalore and RajaRajeshwarinagar, the name SVN is quite synonymous with quality and excellence in eye care- a trait which we have nourished and preserved with utmost care. In fact, it is this pursuit of excellence that sets us apart from other competing eye hospitals who also recognize our varied surgical expertise to refer their unexpected surgical complications such as dropped nucleus following cataract surgery, retinal surgeries, Lasik Enhancements etc. As much as our patients are proud of our achievements, we are grateful to all our patients and referring doctors, optometrists, Pharmacies, Laboratories, Opticians as well as various other hospitals for their recognition ,support and partnering us in our pursuit of widening the reach of ophthalmology in this region. We are also empanelled with various insurance companies including GIPSA and offer Cashless services to all Health Insurance Card holders.
In 2015 January 26th, We have also inaugurated our SECOND centre at Ramanagaram on the Bangalore Mysore Highway and we are pleased to announce that this facility too is a stand alone centre fully equipped with a Surgical OT with Operating Microscope, Alcon Laureate Global Phaco System for effortless cataract surgery, Consultation rooms, High End Equipments, Fundus Imaging system for diagnosis of Retinal diseases, Opticals, Pharmacy etc. This centre serves the people of Ramanagara, Magadi, Chennapatna, Kanakapura along with nearby townships at Bidadi and Kumblagodu as well as over 150 surrounding villages.
In the year 2019, June 15th, We have inaugurated our THIRD unit at Kengeri Satellite Town, Opposite Vidhya Ganapathi temple and we are looking forward to cater to the population residing at kengeri, kumblagodu, Malathahalli, Uttarahalli, Bangalore University and nearby residential areas.This centre too is fully equipped to treat patients for eye related ailments along with performing Eye Surgeries. The centre has 3 Consultation chambers, Opticals, Pharmacy, Operation Theatre, Imaging System, Computerized Vision Testing, Cataract Surgical Suite for Stichless, painless cataract surgery by phacoemulsification.
We are also proud that many associated superspeciality services such as Vitreoretinal surgery, Laser vision correction, Glaucoma, etc apart from advanced cataract surgery are also provided under a single roof at our centre. No other centre in South West Bangalore provides in house Lasik Laser treatment or VitreoRetinal Surgery or Advanced Cataract surgery by advanced phaco techniques. All other centres provide Basic Cataract surgery only, while referring difficult / demanding cataract patients who demand good near normal post operative results to Advanced & dedicated Ophthalmic surgical centres . In this region, SVN (Sri Venkateshwara Nethralaya) is the one & only dedicated surgical eye centre to provide total eye care solutions under one roof starting from Lasik to Advanced Vitreoretinal surgery to Cataract Surgery by Advanced Phacoemulsification. In fact, in this region we are the only centre to provide Multifocal IOL implantation to our elderly patients to achieve spectacle free eyesight. In fact we are the first centre to implant Carl Zeiss MF4 Multifocal IOL in Karnataka as well as the first centre to install NIDEK Excimer laser for Lasik Laser treatments imported from Japan.
Our Inhouse Optical facility, Contact Lens trial facility (Soft, Semisoft, RGP, SemiScleral, Mini Scleral and Full Scleral Lenses), Day care surgical facility, Lasik treatment suite, Vitreoretinal surgical facility, along with various advanced diagnostic equipments for detection and treatment of Glaucoma and other sight threatening disorders can be compared with the most advanced tertiary care centres anywhere in the world.
It is also a matter of enormous pride that we have been consistently providing these facilities at a reasonable cost that is almost 35-60% economical when compared to similar centres not only in Bangalore, but also in other metros like Mumbai, Hyderabad, New Delhi etc.
HOW IS THiS POSSIBLE?
WHY HONEST PRICING IS IMPORTANT?
In fact when compared, many charitable eye hospitals charge much higher rates for paying patients depending on their paying capacity as they tend to cross subsidize their free surgeries for camp patients through the targeted excess revenue generated from paying patients. This leads to artificially high/inflated prices to patients who pay on their own with their own resources. In India, more than 75% of patients pay from their own pockets and this artificially inflated prices leads to financial misfortunes for many families. Even Insurance Companies are alleging fraud when hospitals overcharge paying patients. But, Most Hospitals perform a few free surgeries and free treaments and overcharge the rest in the name of cross subsidization.
So, We do not perform free surgeries by charging more from paying patients as we feel it is not a good practice in the long run exploiting cash paying patients without their consent. For Poor patients, we do have a list of voluntary patients who have expressed their wish to sponsor a surgery to provide vision for poor blind patients as a good will benovelence measure for having recovered well in our hands. Sometimes many patients / good samaritans also request us to identify deserving candidates to be operated upon in the memory of their departed family members. We allow the patient to contact these "angel sponsors" who then decide if they will partly/fully fund the cost of the surgery on a case to case basis after verifying the credentials. The surgeries are also scheduled on the death anniversary of the departed family member if such a wish is expressed. After the procedure utilising the same infrastructure and skills given to paying patients, Pre Operative Photographs, Surgical Video as well as post operative Photographs with patient testimonials expressing gratitude to the concerned angel sponsor ..is given to the sponsoring family. This helps in creating a "Family Bond" between the hospital, poor patient as well as the angel sponsor which lasts for an entire lifetime and provides immense satisfaction to all the stake holders as the quality of surgery &/ results is never compromised in the name of "Free Eye Surgery / Mass Camp Surgery". Angel Sponsors also get due credit and recognition from the poorer sections of the society. However they can wish to remain anonymous to the patient if they so desire.
Our Charitable programmes Nethrodhayam, Sudarshanam,and Pavithrajyothi ensure that the less privileged sections of the society are not left behind in this rapidly advancing field of medicine and our approach is thereby ensured to be all encompassing and wholesome.
