Our History


Dr Parveez Ubed started ERC Eye Care in June 2011, as a standalone clinic with regular community outreach camps. Before starting ERC, the founder has been working for almost four years in an NGO Eye set-ups/ government facilities, and realized the need of eye care, which inherently had the following characteristics:

  • Dignity to the patient irrespective of economic background
  • Accessible services
  • Quality of services provided
  • "On demand" Eye Care - Eye Care that is available

ERC Eye Care thus came up with a model of affordable, accessible, inclusive "on demand" eye care. The main components of our service delivery are: (Hub & Spoke model)

  • Vision Centers
  • Mobile Unit
  • Hub Hospital
