Dr Agarwal's Eye Hospital

Dr Agarwal’s eye hospital is a global eye care that operates out of 100 branches in 11 countries, across the world. In 2010, we established our first branch in the African continent in Mauritius. Since then, we have set up almost 15 branches across nine countries in Africa.  The institution has given birth to many modern-day inventions in the field like Glued IOL (to treat patients with complicated lens problems) and PDEK (an ultra-modern form of eye transplants).

We conduct regular camps in many remote locations to eradicate vision loss due to non- treatment of easily curable eye diseases.

Our mission is to become the world’s most prestigious health care organization that always stands a class apart through its continuous innovation and use of cutting-edge technology. We plan to collaborate with successful channel partners and to deliver maximum return for all stakeholders. We are a safe and dedicated team of people who strive to be transparent in both our work and our services. To sum it all up, we believe in profitability with a heart. And wish never to compromise on any of our principles.

As part of our strategy to expand and make our services more accessible, we are hereby inviting applications from suitable, qualified and experienced individuals to fill the position of Optometrist.
