There are very serious societal and human implications for retinal degenerative diseases of the eye. Most of these diseases start at an early age and only a very experienced retinal specialist can discern the ones that are bound to progress slowly vs. the ones that do not. That is why I am delighted that Dr. Rajani Battu has started this non-profit venture. She is one of the most qualified retinal surgeons I have known and I am sure the clinic will be a boon for patients and their families in India. I wish her the very best in this new and brave venture.

People with sight impairment caused by degenerative diseases of the eye need highly specialist care. I am delighted that Dr. Battu is opening a dedicated clinic for their benefit. Dr. Battu is an internationally recognized expert who is able to offer invaluable management for affected people and their families, both in India and abroad. I am confident that in the years ahead, the clinic will not only be a center of excellent clinical care but will also offer to facilitate important research for the development of treatments.

Comprehensive Genetic Testing:
More and more genes have been identified recently as the cause of eye disease. Genetic testing of the family members of a patient can give a lot of information and guidance for the future. The link between knowledge and its effective application is so much essential to reduce the burden of genetic eye disease and needless blindness. I am very glad that such a much needed ‘Centre for Eye Genetics and Research’ is taking birth in Bangalore. It will be a great service to patients in this part of the country given the small numbers of such centers presently available in the country. I wish Dr. Rajani Battu the very best in her initiative and pledge my full support to the cause. I am confident that she will steer it to make it a center of excellence in the coming years
Dr Praveen R Murthy
Congratulations on setting up the Centre for Eye Genetics and Research. It is a much-needed service which was lacking in our city. Being a stand-alone center it is likely to focus exclusively on giving comprehensive genetic testing and counseling for patients with inherited eye disorders which individual practitioners can access. Knowing your commitment and experience I am sure this center will make a mark in scientific excellence and will also serve patients with empathy. I wish you all the best.
