Work and Achievements
Dr Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital (SCEH) started in 1914, with the purpose of providing free eye care to the poor patients. While remaining committed to eradicating avoidable blindness and deafness, the very core of it’s being, in the last few years, the organization has been following a parallel charter to evolve into a tertiary eye and ENT care institute.

Mathura (Uttar Pradesh), 3 satellite clinics in Gurgaon – (Haryana), Meerut – (UP) and Karol Bagh (Delhi) and 30 vision centers (primary eye care center) in the communities around its network.
For achieving self sufficiency while serving the community with best quality and international standards our hospital works on cross subsidy model. Introduced in mid 90’s, the model offers staggered rates, allowing patients to pay for the services according to their paying capacities; doing more than 50% of all surgeries, free of cost for the underprivileged population.
