Most of the staff are being recruited locally and trained at LV Prasad Eye Institute to build local competency. Full-fledged out-patient care will be offered from Saturday and a few weeks later, eye surgeries will commence.

In the inaugural address, Dr. Kalam shared his views on developed and developing countries. Marketing products to other countries competitively by ensuring quality of products, cost effectiveness and timely supply would make a country, an empowered nation.
