Aravind Eye Hospital’s Aurolab which produces Intra Ocular lens (IOL) and other surgical instruments, is set to get a new manufacturing facility in 1,10,000 sq ft area at Veerapanchan in Tamil Nadu. The new facility of Aurolab will conform to the international standards set by United States Food and Drug Administration. This new facility will help Aurolab increase its production capacity by five times. Aurolab which had received ISO 1999 and CE certification for its high-quality products, will continue to provide its products to eye care institutions at cheaper rates. About 60 per cent of its IOL produced is used by eye care hospitals across the world. It is also keen to introduce new technology in the manufacturing process while ensuring quality products. The new facility will bring the manufacturing of various products under one roof and help faster growth of the organisation.
