::: ASSOCIATED INSTITUTIONS : Regional Institute of Ophthalmology

INSTITUTION HISTORY
 
The Regional Institute of Ophthalmology, Government Ophthalmic Hospital is the oldest Ophthalmic Institute in Southeast Asia. It was established in the year 1819. It is the second oldest eye hospital in the world next only to MOORFIELDS EYE HOSPITAL, London established in 1818. Chennai may well be proud of this Institution and its world wide reputation.
 
PRE-INDEPENDENT ERA
 
Dr. Travers, who was holding the appointment as surgeon in London to the East India Company in 1819, drew the attention of the Directors of East India Company to set up an Eye Infirmary in India similar to the one in London. Dr. Robert Richardson, one of the company’s surgeons came to Chennai (then Madras) and established the Madras Eye Infirmary in July 1819 at Royapettah, in Madras. 
 
During the period of Lt. Col. E.F. Drake Brodeman, FRCS in the year 1844, the present site was chosen and the foundation was laid. The Eye infirmary was rechristened as the Government Ophthalmic Hospital in 1888.
 
 
ELLIOT’S SCHOOL AND MUSEUM
 
Lt. Col. R.H. Elliot, FRCS, MS was the superintendent of this hospital from 1904 to 1913. The hospital saw great expansion under his stewardship. Vast improvements were brought about in the organization. Plans were laid and up to date apparatus were sourced on an extensive scale for the practice and teaching of Ophthalmology. By this period the hospital attracted distinguished visitors from abroad. The exterior of the hospital as it stands today, took shape during his tenure in office.
 
The plans laid by Lt.Col. Elliot materialized during the tenure of Lt.Col. Kirkpatric who succeeded Lt.Col. Elliot.
 
A school of Ophthalmology was constructed at a cost of INR 93, 120/- and the construction was completed at the end on 1919. The block was named “Elliot’s School of Ophthalmology” and was inaugurated on 16th Feb.1920.
 
Lt.Col. R.E.Wright succeeded Lt.Col. Kirkpatric and he held the office for the longest period of 18 years until 1938.  He was an eminent Ophthalmologist and a great pathologist as well.
 
The museum in Elliot’s School, acclaimed as one of the best in the world by distinguished Ophthalmologists visiting the Hospital owes its conception and inception to the tireless work of Dr. R.E. Wright & Lt.Col. Kirkpatric. The hospital attracted and attracts until date many postgraduates from across India and abroad.
 
The museum contains the manuscripts written by Superintendents in 1819, 1910 & 1920. The case sheets written, the charts and diagrams presented by these great supervisors on all tropical diseases of the eye are a good collection. It continues to be well maintained and new precious collections are being added regularly. A heritage building like the Elliot’s School is an asset not only to the nation but also to the International Ophthalmic Community.
 
In 1926, Licentiate course in Ophthalmology was started for the first time in India.
 
The First Indian to hold the Office of the Superintendent was Diwan Bahadur Dr.K. Koman Nayar, in 1940.
 
Post Graduate Diploma in Ophthalmology was started in 1942.
 
POST-INDEPENDENT ERA
 
In 1947 Dr. R.E.S. Muthayya became the Superintendent of this hospital.
 
The current pattern of training Ophthalmologists was established during his time.
 
The first Eye Bank in India started off in the year 1948 during his tenure of office.
 
Post Graduate Degree M.S. Ophthalmology was instituted in 1949.
 
In 1960 “SHAWFIELD”, the spacious premises opposite to the old building, was acquired for further expansion of the hospital.
 
In 1962, the “SCHOOL OF OPTOMETRY” was established. It was built in shawfield with a provision to enroll 30 students every year for a 2 year Diploma Course in Optometry.
 
During 1966-1975, the period of Dr. J.E. Abraham, the Xenon-Arc Photocoagulator (MEYER-SCH WICKERATH) was installed for the use of the poor.
 
In the year 1969, the 150th Anniversary of the hospital was celebrated with scientific sessions and exhibition.
 
In 1972 the Mobile Ophthalmic Scheme was reinforced along with another Mobile Ophthalmic unit.
 
In 1977, during the tenure of Dr. E.T. Selvam, all efforts were made to regain the past glory of the institution and to also equip it on modern lines.
 
The hospital was elevated to the level of Regional Institute in 1985 under the National Program for Control of Blindness.
 
In 1994, the 175th anniversary of the hospital was celebrated under the Directorship of Prof. Dr. V.M. Loganathan.
 
Achievements were made in the area of academics. Hi-tech Ophthalmic equipments like Argon Laser, ND:Yag Laser, Phaco Machine, Imported Operating Microscope (Wild) for Cataract Surgery were installed. The A/C Auditorium with wonderful Audio visual arrangement was also inaugurated during the tenure of Prof. Dr. V.M. Loganathan. P.G.

Elliot's Museum.
  For a unique reason, the Regional institute of Ophthalmology and Government Ophthalmic Hospital is exceptional in ophthalmic arena. With its unsurpassed Elliot's museum , the institute asserts itself as the saviour in evolution of the practice of ophthalmology.

Conceived by an eminent pathologist and ophthalmologist, Lt. Col. R. E. Wright (Former Superintendent., Mar 1920 – Nov 1938 ), the museum had its inception in the pre-independence era. Aptly named after Lt. Col. R. H. Elliot (Superintendent., Apr 1904 – Apr 1913 ), who had contributed greatly to the field of ophthalmology, the museum is a treasure house of ophthalmic teaching and practice over the last century.

Renovated in the year 1979 under guidance of Dr. E. T. Selvam , the museum stands well preserved to date, demonstrating the roots and history of ophthalmology for students to revere and learn.
Currently the museum is sited in the first floor of the Elliot's School of Ophthalmology on the old hospital grounds and is spread over an area of 6000 Sq. ft. and is accessible to individual on the
 
 
authority of the Director.
The museum houses a repertoire of:
Hand drawn clinical pictures artistically rendered clinical portraits in the Artists Corner'.
Extraordinary collection of time-honoured
textbooks written by revered authors.
A rare display of Eye replicas from Germany which date beyond 120 years .
Top
Well preserved ophthalmic specimens
of rare and common eye diseases.
Case records written in the initial days, as early as 1873 .
Diagnostic and Surgical instruments of
yesteryears.
  Phoropter
 
An extraordinary exhibit of optical devices such as Old Slit Lamps, Keratometer, Phoropters, ophthalmometer.
Ophthalmometer   Olden day Slit lamp
 
Acclaimed as the finest by several distinguished ophthalmologists who have visited the museum from all around the world, the museum stands modestly in the modern world to reminisce the splendour of ophthalmology.
