Mr. Himanshu and Mr. Vaibhav from Johnson & Johnson visiting Sushant School of Health Sciences and condusted 2 expert lectures for the optometry students.

The topic focused on Dry Eye Syndrome, diagnosis and treatment options. Students learned about Evaporative Dry Eye and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction as main causes of Dry Eye Disease.

Lifestyle concerns such as nutrition and overuse of screens also contribute to dry eyes eyes. Studebnts also learned about The duifference between Evaporative and Aqueous deficient dry eyes. Students were introduced to Lipiview and Lipiflow technologies. Lipiflow, using Vector Thermal Pulsation rather than Intra Pulse Laser (IPL) therapy. Treatment with Lipiflow actually clears the existing meibomian glands and allows better functioning. This was compared to overuse of lubricating drops which actually only provide easing of symptoms rather than actual dry eye treatment.

Students and faculty alike had a great session of learning and advancement in the field of dry eye therapy.

Sushant school of health sciences student went for an industrial trip to the Mother Dairy largest plant at Patparganj, Delhi on 15th Nov,19. Mother Dairy is one of the largest, liquid milk company in Asia. It started its operations in 1974 under the Operation Flood Programme of National Dairy Development Board.

Students were briefed about the procurement and processing of the milk. They were also explained the testing processes for multiple parameters. Firstly, the presentation explaining in detail all five processes from Standardization to pasteurization was explained with all its procedures and importance. Then students were led to main insulated central area from where they were shown all the chambers in which milk was going through all the processes.

Insights about adulteration also was interesting for the students, how adulterants like urea can be detected from milk sample through basic tests. The students were informed about 25 main tests for which mother dairy is known to maintain its high-quality standards.

At last, all the students were given Mother Dairy flavoured milk and ice-creams. Overall it was an informative as well as fun experience for the students.

Feedback from students

Our Mother dairy visit helped us in many terms. Earlier we used to see milk as a normal product, after our mother dairy visit took place, we got to know the importance of milk in an individual’s life. Earlier, we just had a theoretical knowledge about the technique of pasteurization, but in this visit, we got to see this process practically. Overall a very informative visit!
Vishesh , MLTIII

It was overall a very explorative and nice initiative from Ansal University. We were being practically shown all the process through which milk is being processed and tests to check adulteration.
Harshit Ahuja , OPTOM III

It was an immense pleasure for all of us from the Pharma batch to have such an informative industrial visit to Mother Dairy. We came to know about lot of things that we never pondered on. From the milkman to our home, the journey of milk was explained so well. We would like to have such knowledgeable industrial visit again.
