Dr.R.P.Centre's Units and Sections
Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences is an integral part of AIIMS and was created in 1967 as a National Institute of Ophthalmology within the precincts of the AIIMS to ensure maximized interdisciplinary benefits and holistic patient care. As the Apex Institution under the National Programme for Control of Blindness ( NPCB ), it was the first Centre of its kind started at the AIIMS more than 38 years ago, followed by the other super-speciality Centres later at the Institute. The diverse patient and therefore the ancillary work load at Dr. R. P. Centre (a WHO Collaborating Centre for Prevention of Blindness) has been steadily and continuously increasing especially so in the last few years with the advent and application of latest technologies in sophisticated investigative and operative ophthalmology so important for overall patient care, both in the erstwhile laboratories as well as in our newer facilities at the Centre. To promote research in all directions of Ophthalmology this centre is having super-specialty departments to support extensive basic and applied research in ophthalmic sciences.
