About The Eye Foundation - RS Puram

This eye care organization has clinics in Coimbatore, Tirupur, Sungam - Coimbatore, Mettupalayam, Ooty & Bangalore in the State of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka in South India. The best technology and medical skills are used to provide blade free and pain free eye laser based surgery for patients. Overseas patients are welcomed and airport transfers, interpreter services and comfortable accommodation are arranged by the organization. LenSx, Smile, LASIK, Zyopotix and Intralase refractive surgery using laser technology are performed at the clinics. 

Traditional LASIK involves the use of a microkeratome for the creation of corneal flaps. The microkeratome is a hand held blade that moves across the eye, cutting the corneal flap as it goes. While LASIK is extremely safe, if complications do occur the microkeratome is often the cause. Our hospital is one of the few in India to offer the advantage of the Femto Second – 

method that enables the surgeon to create your corneal flap

 ever touching your eye.

Optilasik is a customized laser ablation, specific, tailor made to each individual eye. Your eyes are as unique as you are, why should they be treated with the exact same procedure everyone else gets? If you are thinking about laser vision correction, choose the procedure that was designed to work with your eyes unique attributes. We have the best EX500 OptiLasik for vision correction.


Cataract surgery is considered to be one of the safest surgical procedures in the world. However, advancements in technology has led to the evolution of Laser Refractive Cataract Surgery which further ensures more absolute precision and accuracy, with better visual outcomes for the patient.


The Eye Foundation has sought milestones which rates its thirst to be the first in technological acquisition to optimally provide for its patient community. Listing a few of its highlights would be …. Scoring the Maximum number of Multifocal Implants in Asia Pacific at one point of time SMILE – Experience the next generation Laser vision correction First to Introduce LENSX – Laser Refractive Cataract...

Teamed with a young, proficient group of doctors and optometrists, Dr.D.Ramamurthy, Chairman along with his wife Dr. R. Chitra, Medical Director continue to bring state of the art eye care to this regions and strive to maintain The Eye Foundation as a world class Eye Care center.

A medical procedure or operation does not involve doing the surgery and taking a few tablets. It takes more than that. It takes a lot of care and concern. Here, at The Eye Foundation, you will get a feeling of home away from home. Visit us and see a brighter and better vision. The experience of our old patients stands testimony to the fact.
