Mungale Eye Hospital (MEH) was established on 24th June, 2007 in Vadodara, Gujarat, India. Presently MEH is well-equipped with entire range of state of art diagnostic, curative and latest technology surgical equipment required to treat eye patients.
Mungale Eye Hospital is a joint venture by two young ophthalmologists Dr Meeta Mungale and Dr Sachin Mungale.
MEH was started in the year 2011 on the auspicious day of Vijayadashmi at a new location. The location of MEH is in the heart of Baroda city at Kothi which was decided due to the referral patients it caters to from various areas of Gujarat and neighboring states of MP and Rajasthan.
Ophthalmology which deals with the study of eye diseases has made dynamic advances in the last century. It now has expanded to various subspecialties which deal with various parts of the eye e.g. cornea, retina, glaucoma, squint, pediatric, oculoplasty etc. This concept is novel to our country which lacks even the primary care. To cater to the requirement of dealing with complicated cases these doctors were inspired to undergo world class training at accredited institutes in the country. One of these is the prestigious L.V.Prasad Eye Institute at Hyderabad where both have done a rigorous long term fellowship.
MEH is always there to serve each and every patient by providing the same standard of eye care.
It is managed by highly qualified, skilled, competent and motivated eye specialists Dr. Meeta and Dr. Sachin Mungale with the support of staff members who play active role in treating walk-in-patients every day.
Dr Meeta is a corneal surgeon and deals with all corneal and anterior segment problems whereas Dr Sachin is a glaucoma expert.
MEH is a referral centre for complex cases of cornea and glaucoma, providing quality eye care at affordable prices.
Honesty, compassion and excellence are the values which drive us in the pursuit of the goal of “SIGHT FOR ALL”.The motto of ‘vision for all’ is the principle that guides us in helping all our patients including the needy ones.

The eye needs light in order to work, but too much bright sunlight may be associated with damage to the retina (age related macular degeneration). It is sensible therefore always to wear a hat/cap with a brim or dark glasses when out in bright light.
The most important environmental factor associated with eye disease is smoking – smoking is bad for retinas. Yet another reason to give up the habit!
Diet is also important – dark green leafy vegetables (spinach, kale, and broccoli) contain micronutrients that are important for the health of the retina. A balanced diet is sensible for all sorts of reasons.
Vitamin and mineral supplements in the form of pills or powders have a limited role in protecting the eyes in someone eating a balanced diet. There are some forms of age related macular degeneration that can be helped by these pills – consult your doctor if in doubt. Remember that too many supplements can also be harmful so always only take the recommended dosage.
Cornea, the main focusing part , is the clear front surface of the eye. Like a window, it allows light to enter the eye. Vision could be markedly reduced or lost if the cornea becomes cloudy or scarred. This condition is known as corneal blindness.
Injuries to the eye, birth defects, malnutrition, infections, chemical burns, congenital disorders and complications of eye surgery.
Persons with AIDS, Hepatitis B and C, Rabies, Septicaemia, Acute leukemia (Blood cancer), Tetanus, Cholera, and infectious diseases like Meningitis and Encephalitis cannot donate eyes.
The eye bank is a nonprofit organization and obtains, medically evaluates and distributes eyes which are donated by humanitarian citizens for use in cornea transplants, scleral reconstruction, research and education. To ensure patient safety the donated eyes and the donor’s medical history are evaluated by the eye bank staff in accordance with the Eye Bank association of America’s (EBAA) strict medical standards.
The most important action you can take is to tell your family and legal representative. Most states now require that families be offered the option of donation when a loved one dies. Families may give consent for donation. It is most helpful if they know how you feel in advance. A donor card can serve as an indication to your family, your legal representative and hospitals of your intention to be an eye donor.
