Students Testimonial

I really loved the discipline, faculty members, and infrastructure of Sankara College of Optometry. Also, the college within the Sankara Eye Hospital premises provides the extensive clinical exposure to build and enhance our clinical skills. I would like to specially thank Aparna mam, Namratha mam and Tapas sir for guiding me throughout my UG Research. Their supervision helped me to develop a keen interest in Optometry Research, a road very less travelled specifically in India.
