We welcome patients from all social and monetary backgrounds
Bringing affordability through the charitable trust:
We firmly believe that advanced medical ophthalmic care should not remain the preserve and privilege of the rich. We welcome patients from all social and monetary backgrounds and offer highly subsidized ophthalmic care and procedures through the aegis of the Smt. Naliniben Chhaganlal Dedhia Charitable Eye Institute. A mobile eye van goes to the less priviledged areas of the city for administering regular eye check-ups and other eye services free of cost every week.

Dr. Chhaganlal Nanji Dedhia (Dr. Niteen C Dedhia’s Father)
Seven decades ago, the main occupation of our forefathers in the native place of Kutch was farming. Very few courageous people had ventured to the city of Mumbai to earn a livelihood. Most of them were traders of food grains. During those days the opportunities for higher studies were limited.
One young boy at a tender age of 12 years having completed his primary education in village Gadshisha came to Mumbai with a vivid dream to become a surgeon and with his self confidence, hard work & diligence made it a reality!
This was none other than Dr. Chhaganlal Nanji Dedhia who succeeded in passing his M.S. (General surgery) from K.E.M. Hospital, Mumbai in 1956.
In his quest to achieve more knowledge, he went to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Edinburgh, U.K. in the year 1957 to procure his F.R.C.S. degree.
He worked in England for about six years to gain more experience in the field of medicine and Surgery and returned to India to serve the society at large.
He was offered Honorary Surgeon’s Post at B.Y.L. Nair Hospital, which he accepted and lent his services from 1962 to 1978. He also served at many Charitable hospitals like Sarvodaya Hospital and Kothari Hospital. He had his private practice at Bombay Mutual Terrace Building at Opera House, Mumbai.
He was a gifted man and was successful in treating a number of complicated cases. People to this date remember him & bless him for his good deeds. He was a humble person and inspite of his busy career had managed to establish strong and lasting friendship with many people.
Smt. Naliniben Dedhia (Dr. Niteen C Dedhia’s Mother)
He was encouraged and supported by his better half Smt. Naliniben Dedhia.

Before her marriage Naliniben was an active social worker. She was a gifted singer and was invited to sing at All India Radio (AIR), Mumbai. After her marriage she became more involved in family & spiritual activities.
