I have first visited hospital when they provide free check up for students.Its the great effort. I remember many of my friends first identified their eye defect that time only. They also provide free service and conduct many camps throughout the year.They also perform surgery at low of cost. The hospital provide ample environment and awsome hospitality that makes us forget that we are in a hospital.
