Department of Ophthalmology :
Department of Ophthalmology in Holy Family Hospital is one of the best equipped Comprehensive Eye Units in the City.
From Humble beginnings in the early 50s, the Ophthalmic Department has come a long way. The fledgling department was started by Dr. Hari Mohan in 1957 and he was joined by Dr. Dev Raj Raheja in 1963. With the passage of time and ably supported by the management, the department of Ophthalmology now boasts of state of the art technology and is in the capable hand of Dr. Deepankar Bose, Dr. Praveen C. Bhatia and Dr. Gautam Kumar.
