One of India’s pioneering and iconic eye health intuitions, Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences is celebrating 50 glorious years of its service.

The Centre has the world's largest residency training program with over 150 residents in training including 109 junior residents, 53 senior residents, 20 postdoctoral students, and various long-term and short-term trainees in different fields of ophthalmology at a given time.

The Center, affiliated to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, is equipped with state-of-the-art technology for patient care, teaching, and research. Various innovative techniques and practices in different disciplines have been described which have made a path-breaking contribution in the management of ocular disorders.

The Centre works in collaboration and coordination with AIIMS which is the apex institute of the country. This augments the comprehensive care of patients who have ocular afflictions with systemic disorders. The Centre is also a World Health Organisation's collaborating center for the prevention and control of blindness.

One of the strengths of the Centre has been its partnership and longstanding work with a number of institutions, non-governmental organisations.

As a part of the Centre’s 50 years celebrations, the Indian Journal of Opthalmology has published special articles and editorial to underline the seminal work that has been done.
CBM has been a longstanding partner of the Centre. This partnership has been recognised by Dr. Atul Kumar, Chief and Professor of Ophthalmology, Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences (WHO Collaborating Centre for Prevention of Blindness), All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India in his special article in the Journal’s March 2017 issue.

CBM has been mentioned, in the article, along with Welcome Trust, Sightsavers, SightLife, ORBIS, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Operation Eyesight Universal and Lions Club International Foundation.

CBM and Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences are partnering a project, titled Disability Inclusive Eye Health Programme, to work towards disability inclusive eye care services. The Centre’s role in training ophthalmologists/ para-medical personnel in the government services will support integrating disability inclusive eye care in government eye care programmes.
