Madurai Eye Center (MEC) located at R S Puram, Coimbatore is a tertiary care eye hospital offering a wide range of comprehensive eye care services. Established on 20th June 1993, MEC is a center of excellence strongly committed to social values and ethical conduct. Our motto – Precision Eye Care, is centred on the belief that eye care of international standards should be accessible to every individual in society. In line with that vision, our doctors are trained in premier institutes in India and Singapore and ably aided by state-of-the-art technology.
Dr A.Srinivasan, a native of the temple city started his journey in ophthalmology at Madurai Medical College in the year 1972. Born to an eye doctor Dr Audikesavan S, ophthalmology has been his passion since his childhood days. Having been brought up in a city that never sleeps (thoonga nagaram) he has deeply imbibed its culture and moorings and hence wanted the name Madurai to be part of the venture he started in Coimbatore in 1993.
With ever-increasing advancements in science, there is a need to constantly upgrade and update technology and knowledge. At MEC we provide eye care of international standards in diagnostics (PCR for viral uveitis, ocular surface neoplasia, intraocular lymphoma panel) and treatment (retinal detachment surgery, macular procedures, corneal transplant, C3R, LASIK laser). To deliver such Precision Eye Care our doctors Dr Nithin & Dr Naveen have undergone training under the masters in their respective specialities in India and abroad.
