The Optometric Education Society (O.E.S) was formed in 1995 with the main objective to promote optometric education in Mumbai. The world looks upon Mumbai as the business capital of India, but till the year 2000, it lacked an institution offering a degree program in Optometry. When the world was celebrating the end of the millennium in December 1999, an enthusiastic group of optometrists toiled hard to establish a school of optometry in Mumbai.
The College of Optometry was established on the premises of the Ramwadi Eye Hospital in August 2000. The Lotus College of Optometry (formerly H.H.K) now occupies the third floor of the hospital covering 3000sq feet.
