Honourable President Dr Ram Baran Yadav in the presence of many distinguished guests, like the German Ambassador and representatives of CBM Germany, European Union (EU) and Standard Chartered Bank (SCB) as well as the partner organisation NNJS.
Biratnagar Eye Hospital was started as a branch of Sagarmatha Choudhary Eye Hospital, Lahan in rented premises in September 2006. Under the dynamic leadership of Dr Sanjay Singh this hospital has grown very fast. In 2010 alone more than 35,000 eye operations have been performed.

Biratnagar Eye Hospital provides high quality eye services and all sub-specialities in eye care at an affordable cost to the population of eastern Nepal and adjoining districts in India.
