Laxmi Charitable Trust Eye Hospital (Panvel) was established in the year 2000, to cater to the need of an affordable, sustainable and high-quality eye care for the indigent population of rural Maharashtra. It is ably managed by the Laxmi Charitable Trust under the guidance of the Chief Trustee, Dr.Suhas Haldipurkar, who has been practising in the field of Ophthalmology since 1981.
The existing facility served those sections of the rural population that didn’t have access even to primary eye care previously and had to travel to distant locations for the same. With the vision to provide comprehensive, affordable and quality eye care to more number of patients, our client wished to revamp the existing facility for space optimization. The goal was also to exude warmth and a friendly vibe by re-planning the interiors of the facility.

Our Approach for Executing the Project
The client’s vision of making a functionally optimized facility was achieved by redesigning and renovating both floors in a manner that increased their patient-handling capacity by nearly 50%. Contrasting colour palette for the interiors and clever placement of furniture were used to create a welcoming atmosphere within the facility.
4 OPDs, an Optometry room with 3 cubicles, a Diagnostic room, Reception area, Waiting area and Pharmacy.
2 Operation theatres with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters, Recovery area, TSSU, Waiting area and Reception.
Salient Features of This Project
Floor-wise segregation of public and private spaces thereby, enhancing operational efficiency.
Being a facility operated by a charitable Trust, the challenge was to make the space lively, keeping the budget in perspective. Hence, colours were infused into the space through patterns and assorted furniture, to embellish the interiors.
Our Achievements through This Project
An eye clinic, with optimally planned spaces, with simple yet welcoming interiors, that provides top-notch eye care to the needy.
