Mr Vinod Daniel, CEO of IVI shared the recent developments and the various programs conducted by IVI post the session. 

“It was an honor to be the part of hosting-team for Prof. Naiddo’s talk on “Integrating Public Health with Eye care Systems”, at Dr.Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital on 18th Feb’15.The audience has now many reasons to think about eye care more holistically from the Public Health prospect and a reason for respecting, recognizing & expanding the contributions of all eye care-personals in a country, which is looking for an accelerative need of providing eye care for an aggressive and effective outcome. 

Prof. Kovin was an excellent speaker. I extend my special thanks to Mr. Vinod Daniel and the entire IVI-team by making us feel fortunate for making us a part of their drive for developing eye care resource in the country.”- Prem Kumar Singh, In charge of Optometry sciences.
