Aradhana Eye Care was started in Trivandrum in the year 2000 by Dr. Philip Kuruvilla and Dr Mrs. Sara Kuruvilla as an expression of their Christian faith, in accordance with the principles of integrity, love and service.
The word “Aradhana” means worship, and work here is done as an act of worship to God.
Until 2000, both were working as Ophthalmologists in the mission field in Punjab for 10 years, followed by another 15 years in Mettupalayam, Tamil Nadu. At both places, they provided extensive service and performed thousands of eye surgeries, becoming highly accomplished Ophthalmologists with extensive experience..
In Trivandrum, they started with one base at “Aradhana Eye Hospital” at Fort. Aradhana Eye Institute at Manacaud was built in 2010, and many of the premier services, including the Operation Theatre, Lasers and Sophisticated Diagnostic Equipment were moved there. The Outpatient Clinic still functions in both Manacaud and Fort..
Aradhana Eye Clinic was started as a rural outreach clinic at Vattapara in 2012. .
Aradhana Eye Care is under Aradhana Trust: all doctors and staff are paid fixed salaries, and profits go to the Trust Fund..
