Ancilla Catholic Hospital Eye Centre is situated at Odumosu Close, Off Iju road, in Ifako-Agege, Pen Cinema Area of Lagos State, Nigeria.

We are a Catholic Hospital founded in response to the dire need of the common man in Nigeria for quality and affordable eye health care services which though available in Lagos, are very expensive. The hospital is run/managed by  Sisters of the  Congregation of the Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus (HHCJ), a Religious society of consecrated women in the Catholic Church. 

The Eye Centre started at a temporary site, in one of the consulting rooms within the premises of Ancilla Catholic Hospital situated in the Iju area of Lagos State, in January 2003, as an outreach centre of the ECWA Eye Hospital, Kano, with an ophthalmic nurse and a visiting consultant ophthalmologist, Dr. Kirupananthan, who was the then Medical Director of the ECWA Eye Hospital, he visited the hospital three or four times each year to run clinic and perform surgeries.
