Netravidya Practitioner


  • Netra means Leader, Guidance and Eyes

  • Vidya means science, learning, Philosophy, knowledge and scholarship, any knowledge whether true or false. Its root is Vid which means “to reason upon”, finding, knowing, acquiring on understanding.

  • Sankara Netralaya has always been a pioneer in knowledge dissemination in the fields of Ophthalmology, Optometry, Ophthalmic Dispensing and other Allied Health Sciences as a teaching and training institution since its inception in 1978. The first full-fledged four-year degree program in Optometry was started at Elite School of Optometry in the year 1985. The first M.Phil degree in Optometry was started in the year 2000 at Elite School of Optometry (ESO). ESO holds the highest number of Ph.D holders in the science of Optometry till date.

  • The Sankara Netralaya Academy (TSNA) was established in the year 2010 to offer 4 programs in the field of Allied Health Sciences including Optometry, Lab Technology, Management and Nursing. In keeping with modern times many short-term courses were introduced for the busy healthcare professional to update their knowledge and skills in their chosen areas to keep abreast with latest innovations and advancements in technology. Many Certificate level, Fellowships, blended learning programs and one-day continuing medical/professional education programs have been regularly introduced in the past decade.

  • The present age of pandemics and epidemics have forced us to restructure learning through virtual platforms. In keeping up with its reputation of a trail-blazing trend setter in these times of pandemics and epidemics, Sankara Netralaya has once again come up with a panacea, the Netra Vidya e-learning platform for the benefit of healthcare sector professionals. Launching Netra Vidya with panache and poise Sankara Netralaya promises and rededicates its commitment to the upliftment of society through upgradation of knowledge.
