The rock garden at LVPEI Hyderabad

As you enter the new patient care building, at Hyderabad, the granite stone in the rock garden that greets you is at least 2500 million years old. This granite is faithfully sitting all this while, watching many thousands of generations of people (probably 7500 generations) go by. The stone is thus our "Old Faithful" – one who guards our Institute and us who work here.

Take Care of Your Eyes
Smoking Can Harm your Eyesight

Smoking can even cause vision loss. Studies show that smoking increases the risk of Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD), Cataract, Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy and Dry eye. Smoking during pregnancy may result in Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP), a potential blinding disease in new born babies. Passive smokers are at a risk for developing Dry Eyes, Thyroid Eye Disease and have double risk of developing ARMD.
