scope through micro cataract surgery and support services for cataract
patients. It is considered as the next big thing after Ayurveda and

efficiency, after 24 hours of this surgery, patients are able to return
to their normal life. And what more; this quick recovery period
inspires many to opt for holidays in God’s Own Country.

Mulamoottil Eye Hospital uses 0.9 mm tip inside the eye. Patients enjoy full

Jacob, Medical Director of MEH, which has a tradition of 125 years in eye care.
Mulamoottil Eye Hospital is the largest eye hospital in Kerala and is located at
Kozhencherry, a small town in the Pathanamthitta district of Kerala, India. MEH is
also the pioneers in Customized Cataract Surgery. The hospital also offers precise
surgeries for presbyopia, myopia (short-sight) diabetic eye disease etc. with
shortest post-surgical recovery period. It also conducts research and training
activities in ophthalmology.
By virtue of its location, Mulamoottil Eye Hospital is close to some of the
captivating travel destinations in Kerala that include Kumarakom, Alappuzha, Fort
Kochi, Munnar, Periyar etc. And this makes patients from outside Kerala and
non-resident Indians to club holidaying in Kerala, popular as ‘God’s Own Country’
with their visit for eye treatment; especially after undergoing micro cataract and
customized cataract surgeries.
MEH is about 100 km from the Cochin International Airport and about 120 km from the
Thiruvananthapuram International Airport. The nearest railhead is Thiruvalla railway
