A FEW WORDS ABOUT OSB EYE HOSPITAL


From the very beginning, the ophthalmologists of Bangladesh cherished the wisdom of professional development along with elimination and prevention of blindness from Bangladesh. This wisdom led them in the formation of a platform namely Ophthalmological Society of Bangladesh (OSB). OSB has worked as a pioneer in fulfilling the dream by establishing a central hospital of their own to accomplish their cherished goal; both academic and professional development of its members.

Having this in the back ground, OSB under the leadership of the then Minister of Ministry of Public Works as well as the President of OSB, Late Prof. M.A. Matin managed to secure a piece of land from the Govt in 1985. At the same time a project was undertaken under the umbrella of "OSB Eye Hospital and Foundation for prevention of Blindness" project. The Hospital of the project was being managed by a trustee board. In 2003, OSB EC was empowered to look after the hospital video a decision of AGM held in 1998 instead of a trustee board.

Since then, OSB Eye Hospital is being supervised by a committee formed by the EC OSB. By this time, the OSB building has been converted into a four storey complex accommodating hospital OPD with 12 consultants and an average daily turnover of nearly 400 patients. The building also accommodates an OT complex and indoor, OSB Laser Vision Centre, BAO office as well as OSB central office. In the mean time a PP for a centre of excellence was prepared in 2006 and is under process with the Govt. Once accomplished, this will incorporate facilities for training of different categories of manpower needed for ophthalmic care in the country, development of subspecialties, facilities for research in ophthalmology as well as development and integration of ophthalmic curriculum in under and post graduate medical education as well as eye care policy in the country.

OSB Eye Hospital is aimed to initiate outreach programs for treatment and prevention of blindness, school eye care programs and looking forwards to have a good network of communication with different local and international NGOs to enhance the program of not only prevention and treatment of blindness but also rehabilitating the beneficiaries.
