We are a catholic Hospital founded in response to the dire need of the common man in Nigeria for quality and affordable eye health care services which though available in Lagos are very expensive. The hospital is run/ managed by Sisters of the Congregation of the Handmaids of the holy Child Jesus (HHCJ), a Religious society of consecrated women in the Catholic Church.
The Eye centre started at a temporary site, in one of the consulting rooms in the main Ancilla Catholic hospital in the Iju area of Lagos State, in January of 2003, as an outreach centre of the ECWA Eye hospital in Kano, with an ophthalmic Nurse and a visiting consultant ophthalmologist, Dr. Kirupananthan, the then Medical Director of the ECWA Eye Hospital who visited the hospital 3 or 4 times a year to run clinic and perform surgeries.
In June of 2008, Sr.Dr. Jane Ogie, an Ophthalmologist, took over running of the eye centre. Thus it began to be run as a 32-bed hospital, with daily outpatient (OPD) clinics and surgeries twice a week. We also undertake weekly free eye screening outreaches to churches , mosques, schools, markets and local communities all over Lagos , and (monthly ) outside of Lagos, on our own and in conjunction with none governmental organizations , local governments, and philanthropic organizations who invite us.
