Elite School of Optometry installed its fifth Tamil logmAR chart
The Elite School of Optometry installed its fifth Tamil logmAR chart in the Lakshmi Narsimha Navaneethakrishnan temple in Nanganallur on 13th May 2013 between 10.00 am and 11.00 am on the auspicious occasion of Akshaya Trithiya.
The chart was inaugurated by the Councillor, 167th Ward, Nanganallur Ms.Hema and Mr Bharaniprasad, Social activist. Mr Raghavan, Secretary of the temple graced the occasion. Mr Bakthavatchalam, Father of Ms Malini, Intern helped in installing the chart in the temple. Archaeologists estimate that this temple belongs to the the eighth century and the foundation of the gopuram was laid in 1998 by the seer of Ahobila Mutt.
The local residents who gathered during the occasion expressed their happiness and appreciated the effort of the institution in raising awareness about eye care among the public through innovative methods. Few of them also recalled with admiration the door to door awareness session conducted recently by the ESO on World optometry Day. The logMAR chart drew instant and enthusiastic response and a good number of attendees to the inaugural started testing their vision right away with the help of the instructions printed in the chart.
It would be noteworthy to add at this point that the ESO has also installed its logMARcharts at the Anjaneya temple in Ashok Nagar, Anjaneya temple in Nanganallur, Jeeva park in T Nagar and a marriage hall in Bodi which are rendering good service to the locals by enabling them to check their eye sight in a simple way.
