Departments - RLMC



Eyes allow us to appreciate the beauty of the world and experience the joy of learning new activities and undertaking new adventures. Hence, the cost effective and comprehensive evaluation and management of eye diseases is a key factor in modern day life. With high aims and objectives, the Ophthalmology department of Rashid Latif Medical College was established in 2010, under the supervision of Prof Naeem Ullah. Since then, the OPD is open for 6 days a week with provision of outdoor and indoor facilities along with our dedicated team of experienced faculty to help and guide along the way, possessing the expertise to treat a wide range of patients with various types of vision impairments. Their expertise is further supported by cutting-edge laser technology of YAG and Argon. Besides providing tertiary care services for patients, the department is actively involved in teaching FCPS trainees, medical students, optometrists and ophthalmologists and in research activities. Research projects are designed in collaboration with other renowned centers of Lahore, the current research scope of the department includes Anti-VEGF therapy for retinal pathologies, pro-angiogenic biomarkers in diabetes and case reporting of rare ocular diseases. Free eye camps are arranged twice a year for one entire week to provide state of the art facilities to the ailing, non-affording community. Peripheral camps, such as in the far-flung areas of Kasur, are also arranged to provide medical and surgical management at the doorstep of patients. We thrive to strengthen our department in all fields of ophthalmology and our scientific goals for the next five years include;

  • To work on preventable blindness which mostly affects old population
  • To expand surgical services in all sub-specialties
  • To start small research projects for the undergraduate students to involve them in writing and publication.

Clinically, we thrive to provide best care for our patients. Aim is to become one of the leading eye centers in Punjab.
