From chairperson's desk
Optometrists are primary healthcare practitioners of the eye and visual system who provide comprehensive eye and vision care, which includes refraction and dispensing, detection / diagnosis and co-management of disease in the eye and the rehabilitation of conditions of the visual system.
We take immense pleasure and pride to announce that, the Yaima College of Optometry (YCO) is commencing its 4th batch this year (2021-2022 session) under Manipur University. With increasing demand and need of the optometrists in the state, we are also happy to announce that the Manipur University has increased the intake capacity to 20 students per batch from this session.
It may also be noted and appreciated that, despite the Covid-19 Pandemic, the College administration and its teaching faculties together are putting its best efforts to continue the regular classes strictly adhering to the SOPs given by the State Government so that the students do not have any gap in timely completion of their course.
I firmly believe that, YCO will not only enhance delivery of eye care services but will also serve an exemplary role in opening new vistas in the field of Ophthalmology in our state.
