Our Founder

Our journey began more than 30 years ago with a quest for excellence when Dr Subodh Agarwal our founder who after working for two years in Kanpur Medical College realized that he needed to venture out in the private sector to deliver high quality eye care to his patients. With this dream he established a clinic in the busy area of Naka Hindola Lucknow. That place became synonymous with his clinic and he practiced there for 25 years before moving to a much bigger state of the art premises at Hazratganj Lucknow. In the early 80’s eyecare was in its infancy and there were no lenses available in India for patients after cataract surgery. He was the first one to start lens implantation in the state in the late 80’s. In the early 90’s he introduced Modern Phaco surgery in Lucknow and also introduced the YAG laser system in UP for after cataracts. In 2006 he introduced Lasik Laser surgery in Lucknow. Honesty, ethics of the highest standard and dedication towards his patients is what drove him for more than two decades in Ophthalmology until his untimely demise in 2010.
