Abhishek Nethradhama made a humble beginning on 2nd Dec 2001 with 300 sq.ft.area clinic in Arsikere, Hassan (Dist.). It was the first exclusive private eye hospital for the taluk. With the constant support and encouragement of well wishers, it later expanded to present premises with 1300 sq.ft. fully equipped eye hospital with operation theater in the heart of Arsikere town in 2005. It was a single doctor clinic at Arsikere managed by Dr.Hareesh KV.
In association with Prabha Eye Institute, Jayanagar, Bangalore, the tertiary services for glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy were initiated in Jan 2006 through the "Nayana" Van.
We are proud to saythat Abhishek Nethradhama started for the first time at taluk level of Hassandistrict, a suture less, bloodless, micro incision phaco surgery for cataract in 2007.
This was inspired by Dr.APJ Abdul kalam’s concept of “PURA” (Providing Urban Facilities in Rural areas)
Dr.Hareesh KV was also a consultant in Rotary eye hospital, Arsikere for 9 years. Hence he had the opportunity to conduct nearly 500 eye camps in rural areas, schools and NGO.
Abhishek Nethradhama extended its services to the native place, Doddaballapur in 29thAug 2010.We started to evolve as a team of eye specialists to deliver the services.
To fight the battle against corneal blindness, we joined hands with Narayana Netralaya, Bangalore and started the Dr.Rajkumar Eye collection center in Aug 2010.
We are actively involved in the eye donation collection since 2010. Our team are successful in collecting 1560 eyes as on 13/08/2021.
Abhishek Nethradhama is happy to open the state of the art eye hospital at the most green, popular and most happening area of the North Bangalore, Yelahanka new town in November 2011.
