Industry Visit Report Mughal Labs and Mughal Eye Hospital Trust

Lahore, November 23, 2022 (PPI-OT):

Mughal Eye Hospital Trust:

Mughal Eye Hospital Trust is considered to be amongst those hospitals where all eye dis eases are treated under one roof and free of cost. In this global world very few people become the guide line for others by their deeds and character, and remain alive in the history as a great social worker like Haji Bashir Ahmad Mughal (Late) and his brother Haji Nazir Ahmad Mughal (late) was the founder of Mughal Trust who have taken lead in this respect to serve the humanities to build a trust hospital.

This noble cause was strengthened by their brilliant sons, Javed Iqbal Mughal, Mohammad Tariq Iqbal Mughal and Jamshed Iqbal Mughal, who gave the nation, a precious gift in shape of Mughal Eye hospital. With the aim of providing state of the art facilities for the poor humanities. Since equipment has been imported from Japan, USA and Germany, all patients are dealt equally with the latest technology.

Mughal Diagnostic and Research Labs:

Early diagnosis is the key to a successful treatment. With lab test rates increasing day by day, it has become difficult even for middle-class people to afford these tests. Taking social responsibility, Mughal Eye Hospital Trust took the initiative and started a modern, advanced lab by the name of Mughal Labs in February 2020 where more than 700 tests are being offered at non-profit, affordable rates to all.

To extend its reach and efficacy, more than 25 collections centers have been established and free medical checkup in the form of Free Medical OPD has been started at more than 6 locations in Lahore. Early diagnosis and treatment lead to a healthy nation. OPD clinics providing free medical checkups have been started by Mughal Labs at 6 locations in Lahore in August 2021 so that no one remains undiagnosed. Specialist clinics are also being set up so that OPD patients are referred to the appropriate specialist if needed.
