Improving Livelihood by skill training and providing employment.


Participants undergo comprehensive training in optometry, covering topics such as vision assessment, eye health evaluation, refractive error correction, and the fitting of spectacles and contact lenses from trained professionals.

Practical hands-on experience is provided through clinical rotations and internships at the EyeMantra Hospitals, allowing participants to apply their knowledge and skills in real-world settings under the supervision of our experienced optometrists.

In addition to technical skills, participants receive training in communication, patient care, professionalism, and ethical practice, enhancing their ability to provide quality eye care services with empathy and compassion.

Career development workshops, mentoring, and networking opportunities are provided to support participants in securing employment or starting their own optometry practices upon completion of the program.
