President’s Address

President’s speech

Respected teachers, elders, professionals, friends, well-wishers, seniors, my family members, dignitaries on and off the dais; a very good evening to one and all.

Let there be light – let there be vision.

It is a great pleasure and honour to stand before this august gathering as president of one of oldest, dynamic and prestigious ophthalmic associations in our country. I like to thank all the members of TNOA for reposing faith in me and electing me as the president of the society.

I start with an excerpt from the physician’s prayer – “Give skill to my hands, clear vision to my mind, Kindness and Sympathy to my heart”.

As a citizen of Tamil Nadu, a state with a rich language and cultural heritage, it is pleasing to note that our state is now the Mecca of Ophthalmology. Together, we perform over 4 lakh cataract surgeries a year. Our institutes are well known for the highest quality patient care and research. It is indeed prestigious that companies such as Google are collaborating with our institutes like Aravind and Sankara Nethralaya to harness the benefits of artificial intelligence for health care.Read more…
