TKCI - LVPEI creates a world record!

Tej Kohli Cornea Institute at LVPEI, Hyderabad performed 2000 corneal transplants in a year (April 2016- March 2017). This is the highest number of corneal transplants to be performed by an Eye Hospital/ Institute in the world in a year!!

This record is even more commendable as it comes from India, where organ donations including eye donations is not very common. The cornea surgeons team at LVPEI was ably supported by the Ramayamma International Eye Bank team who collected more than 7000 corneas in the same financial year.
