About Yaima College Of Optometry
There are significant challenges for eye health care with ever increasing avoidable blindness and visual impairment. These mainly include insufficient number of competent healthcare professionals at the primary as well as at tertiary levels, non-rationalization of available resources and the inability to afford treatment. India currently has around 12 millions blind people against 39 millions globally – which makes India home to one third of the world’s blind population. Out of this population 80% of blindness can be prevented if better eye care services could be provided. This trend holds true for every part of the country including the Northeastern side where the geographical terrain is different from rest of the country too. Addressing the pressing need to cope with such challenges, the “Yaima College of Optometry” under the guidance of Yaima Mission for Vision as well as of Yaima Eye Care is offering a four year professional degree in optometry. The college is located at Khagempalli Pankha, Mayai Lambi Road, Imphal West, Manipur – 795001. From invaluable clinical works to vibrant classroom discussions, we take pride on preparing exemplary optometrists who would advance in the field of eye care thereby creating a promising as well as a brighter future.
