Keratoconus and severe allergy made my problem double fold. I was using semi solid lens for 3 years which caused conjunctivitis redness watering & swollen eye. That was when I got to meet Dr. Rohit shetty. It was boon for me I would say. Doctor recognised my double fold problem & I got rid of my conjunctivitis problem 100% in a months time. Subsequently he carried out C3R procedure to stop the increasing keratoconus. Now my karatoconus is stable & I have been prescribed a special contact lens with which I feel like any normal eye.Dr. Rohit Shetty is a great doctor & god sent for me. I strongly recommend him for any cornea / keratoconus problems. I respect him for his supreme knowledge & his service to the needy.

I had the Femto smile Lasik surgery at Narayana Nethralaya and had the best experience throughout my treatment span. Dr. Rohit Shetty and his team were very cordial and friendly and explained the procedure very well. Overall a very good experience.

Good professional service provided for LASIK procedure. A number of my family members (who did LASIK procedure here) referred me to Narayana Nethralaya and Dr Rohit Shetty. The hospital and support staff are very good, helpful and highly efficient.
