Smart Vision& Diabetes Clinic is a health initiative from the Hindustan Group of Institutions founded by Dr Susan Marthandan, Medical Director. She is also the Director, Hindustan College of Arts & Sciences, and the daughter of Dr KCG Verghese, founder of the Hindustan Group of Institutions.
She is one of the leading ophthalmologists in Chennai, and identified the need for a centre to meet the growing demand for both comprehensive eye care and diabetes, one of the main causes of degeneration in vision. India also has 69.2 million people living with diabetes (8.7%) as per the 2015 data. We aim to increase awareness about the rise in diabetes, and its staggering burden and consequences. Smart Vision & Diabetes clinic was founded to meet this need.
