Hisar: The Department of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology of Lala Lajpat Rai Veterinary and Veterinary University has established a special department of Veterinary Ophthalmology for the treatment of various eye diseases in pets and animals. Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Vinod Kumar Verma officially inaugurated the Department of Veterinary Ophthalmology on Saturday.

Vice Chancellor Dr. Vinod Kumar Verma said it was a double pleasure to launch this unit on the occasion of the platinum jubilee celebrations of the college and the 14th foundation day of LUWAS. With the establishment of this department, cataract surgery is carried out here using the advanced phaco method by inserting lenses without stitches. This is the first case of its kind in Haryana. This unit of Luwas will be a center of excellence for the clinical services it offers as well as the training of aspiring and current veterinarians. A separate special unit with state-of-the-art animal eye infrastructure will be set up at the new Luvas campus and at PAMC Panchkula. This department will also act as a central training center for other faculties and veterinary officers in the field of ophthalmology. For this purpose, the Animal Husbandry Department of the Government of Haryana will provide financial assistance of about Rs 323 lakh.

Now pet owners in the state and surrounding areas no longer have to travel to major cities and can avail the latest diagnostic and therapeutic facilities at Luwas at a very low cost. Pet owners and livestock breeders can easily protect their animals’ eyes. Dr. RN Chaudhary, chairman of the department, said the unit was equipped with latest ophthalmological equipment required for diagnosis and treatment of common animal diseases, including facilities for cataract surgery.
