  • The Shrunk Blind Eye Of A 25 Year Old Man Restored To Normal
    The Shrunk Blind Eye Of A 25 Year Old Man Restored To Normal

    Dr. Anina Abraham

    September 29: At just 25 years old, this man’s blind eye was restored to normal! Doctors say that this is a miraculous case and a testament to the power of modern medicine.

    Read more about this amazing story here.

    Venkat Reddy, a 25-year-old man, lost vision in his left eye without any prior history of trauma or injury to the eye. His left eye began to shrink until it was the size of a marble. He sought out the help of many eye specialists, but each one refused to operate on him. They all said that the chances of his sight returning post-operation were very slim to none.

    Dr. Anina Abraham is a very renowned retina specialist who has treated many cases that were once thought to be impossible. She completed her retina fellowship from LV Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad, in 2008 and has been helping thousands of retina patients since then. In 2014, she founded Advanced Retina Care – a highly specialized retina hospital located in Panjagutta, Hyderabad.

    Dr. Anina Abraham has a very positive approach to managing her patients, even in difficult cases. While most doctors say, “I cannot guarantee you will see again”, Dr. Abraham says, “Let us believe you will see again”. With this approach, she has helped many patients recover from seemingly hopeless situations. Dr. Anina Abraham has also developed a very smooth technique for silicone oil removal surgery to ensure that no complications occur during the procedure. She presented this technique at the Asia-Pacific Association of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons Conference in Singapore in 2013.

    Dr. Anina Abraham has had great success as an author in the field of ophthalmology, with both of her books becoming best sellers. Clinical Ophthalmology Made Easy and Retina Cases Illustrated are both excellent resources for anyone interested in learning more about this important subject.

    On July 2022, Venkat Reddy underwent a surgery that has left him smiling ever since Dr. Anina Abraham, who performed the surgery, describes it as one of the most difficult and challenging surgeries she has ever done. Within an hour, she managed to attach the detached retina and choroid and injected silicone oil into the eye. To minimize any inflammation, Venkat was given intravenous steroids. The operation was a huge success, and his vision has returned to near normal. His eye now almost looks as big as the right eye.

    Avani Institute of Design announces ‘The Bachelor of Architecture Undergraduate Program (B Arch)’ for 2022 -23

    October 1: Avani Institute of Design, a Centre of Excellence in Architecture and Design education announces ‘The Bachelor of Architecture Undergraduate Program (B Arch)’ for 2022 -23. The Institute promotes a holistic approach to design education which seeks to develop well-rounded professionals equipped with the sensitivity, empathy, social and technical skill sets to address the ever-evolving concerns of our environment. With the Bachelor of Architecture program, Avani aims to expand into an interdisciplinary Art and Design program exploring new horizons in education, collaborative research and creative thinking.

    Ar. Tony Joseph, Chairman and Principal, Avani Institute of Design said “Architecture and design do not exist in isolation but are closely integrated with the visual and liberal arts, social and cultural norms, philosophy, and technological advances. The design has to evolve as a collaborative endeavour to engage with the unique challenges of contemporary society. Avani’s interdisciplinary curriculum and facilities empower the graduates with the critical thinking to confidently approach and tackle these concerns, to achieve their creative potential, and become thought leaders on their respective fields.”

    The five-year undergraduate program in Architecture aims to develop a comprehensive understanding of the concepts and methods for planning and design of buildings, settlements, and habitats that are responsive to the contextual forces derived from the culture, history, and physical attributes of each site. This is further reinforced by exposure to environmental and social awareness that is an integral part of such a broad academic program. In addition to the core subject of architectural design, the undergraduates are exposed to a range of disciplines like history and theory of design, social studies and visual arts, which aim to mould creative intellectuals and responsible citizens, who will confidently tackle the ever-evolving concerns of our built environment.

    One of the core strengths of Avani is our students’ constant interaction with practicing architects, artists, theatre personalities, designers, and business leaders of national and international repute, who are actively involved with the Institute in various capacities. The interaction between academia and professional practice is critical in evolving professionals with a wide and practical perspective. To develop a close understanding of the context and the design practice, Avani is associated with some of the best practitioners from India and abroad, who provide expert guidance to the students as they progress through the rigorous program.

    The Institute is affiliated with the University of Calicut, approved by the Council of Architecture, and governed by a Council chaired by Ar. Tony Joseph and some of the best-emerging practitioners in India namely Ar. Tony Joseph (Chairman), Ar. Vinod Cyriac, Ar. Brijesh Shaijal and Ar. Vivek PP. The Institute has a very hands-on Advisory Council consisting of some of the best national and international architectural, design, and art practitioners and educators namely Ar. Neelkanth Chhaya, Ar. Dean D’Cruz, Ar. Karan Grover, Ar. Sanjay Mohe, Ar. Bijoy Ramachandran, Artist Bose Krishnamachari, Ar. Chitra Vishwanath, Ar. Peter Rich and Dr. Varkki Pallathucheril.

    Avani Institute faculty includes architects with bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees from such illustrious institutions as CEPT, SPA, the University of Texas at Austin, National University of Singapore, National Institute of Technology Calicut, University of Edinburgh (UK), Bartlett School of Architecture (UK), IAAC (Barcelona, Spain), University of Leuven, University of New South Wales, Delhi University to name a few. Guest lectures and workshops with national and international experts form an integral and continuous part of the curriculum.
