Columbia Asia Hospital, Mysuru, has associated with Ismail Opticals to provide comprehensive eye care services to patients.

The Ismail Opticals Centre was launched at the hospital premises by S N Sandesh Kumar, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mysore.

By partnering with Ismail Opticals, the hospital adds to its existing state-of-the-art facility for eye-related treatments. As a part of the inaugural offer, the hospital is offering free eye check-up from March, 13 to 31 and is offering a 20% discount on spectacles, a 15% discount on sunglasses and a 10% discount on contact lenses.

Speaking on the occasion, Sandesh Kumar said “I am glad to be a part of this inauguration at Columbia Asia Hospital Mysuru. With this new facility at Columbia Asia Hospital, patients can now purchase spectacles right at the hospital after their eye screening sessions. Moreover, this launch has made the eyewear accessible for the patients inside the hospital premises, everyone should get a preventive eye check-up done regularly, treating the ailment at grass root level when diagnosed at an early stage, a preventive health check is better than remedial cure”. Sandesh Kumar was the first one to undergo the eye check at the newly set up optical centre.

Dr Jayaram B N, Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Columbia Asia Hospital, Mysuru, said “Columbia Asia Hospital Mysuru has entered into a partnership with Ismail Opticals to enhance the hospital’s eye care offerings for its customers. Usually, people tend to delay buying their spectacles even after being advised by the doctors. If they begin wearing spectacles right after the doctor’s advice, damage can be minimised to a great extent. Also, in many instances, people tend to ignore going for regular eye check-up or change their eyewear even after the power has changed. By delaying to wear spectacles or ignoring to change, it will eventually lead to complications. Hence, it is crucial for all to take care of their eye health and take adequate measures.”

During the launch, Sadiq Sait, Proprietor, Ismail Opticals said, “Ismail Opticals is the trusted optical chain in Mysuru. We are pleased to associate with Columbia Asia Hospital as it is the trusted healthcare provider in the city. As a launch offer, we are providing free eye check-ups and discounts on eyewear at the Columbia Asia outlet with an intention to make eye care accessible to one and all.”

The new facility provides a wide collection of affordable eyewear and specialised services such as primary eye examination, refraction, contact lens assessment, eye pressure diagnostics and other related services.
