Welcome

Islamia, as it has been known for over 50 years, is the largest multispecialty eye hospital in Bangladesh. The emphasis is on quality eye care for all socio-economic sections of society. The treatment for every patient is of the same quality, though the facilities vary according to the choice the patient makes. There are general facilities at very low cost, as well as private facilities, which are more comfortable and upscale.

Mr. M.A. Ispahani, when he founded the hospital, wanted to ensure that facilities were available for those who cannot afford to pay. This basic tenet remains the essential and leading inspiration and motivation for the present management committee, executive team, and all members of the staff. This is one of the underlying tenets of the hospital, and these patients are covered by cross-subsidization – funds from those who pay more go to offset the costs of treating the poor.

 





The Commonwealth Eye Health Consortium will fund a number of fellowships at Ispahani Islamia Eye Institute and Hospital

The Commonwealth Eye Health Consortium will fund a number of fellowships at this Institution as part of a 5 year Clinical Fellowship Programme. More information will be made available from June 1st when applications will open and the numbers of fellowships are confirmed. The Commonwealth Eye Health Consortium, in recognition of Islamia’s service and contribution to the care of eye patients, has established a Clinical Fellowship program and will fund a number of international fellowship training positions at the IIEI&H.
