Picture an eye-care facility in a remote rural town in India. Do you imagine it having obsolete equipment, dirty ambience, rickety furniture and an inattentive staff? A visit to Maddur taluka, near Channapatna in Karnataka, can prove you wrong. The city’s per capita income is a mere Rs.46,049 — way below the state average of Rs.126,976. But its 800 sq mt vision centre, managed by Drishti Eye Care, leverages telemedicine technology that is both high-end and impressive.
