Founding Years

Khairabad Eye Hospital, one of the pioneer institutes dedicated to a state of the art eye care services in North India, was originally established in Sitapur in the year 1942 by Late Dr. P. N. Mahendra.


With the aim to serve the rich and poor alike with most modern technique of ophthalmic medicine and surgery under one roof the Kanpur Centre was later established and developed by Dr. Y. K. Mahendra in the year 1975. It has been providing excellent eye care facilities to the affording and non-affording since then. Dr. Y. K Mahendra was trained and work extensively in England and Japan for a period of 10 Years, after which he returned to his motherland with a burning desire to serve his own country especially to provide world-class eye care services to the poor and the downtrodden through outreach programmes in rural and slum areas. He has been working relentlessly to pursue his dream since then.
