Keratoconus and severe allergy made my problem double fold. I was using semi solid lens for 3 years which caused conjunctivitis redness wateri
ng & 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 just want to let you know that today, 5 days from 1st noticing the monster bubble on my eye, I woke up with it bigger than ever and decided to go to a local eye hospital, Narayana Nethralaya, here in Bangalore, India.  The service that I received was perhaps the best that I have ever been privy to, this is a world-class facility and I was treated like a king.  Cynthia Roy, the Manager of the International Division, catered to all my needs and hosted me through all the processes and medical steps.  What I was lead to believe was a blood-blister, was nothing of the sort.  I have what is known as a benign neoplasm of my right lacrimal gland and duct, I believe that is what the Oculoplasty Doctor, Dr. Roshmi Gupta said.  She is a renowned expert I this field and was wonderful.  I have photos of my eye and the medical report attached, please review at your convenience. Although this is not a critical issue that requires any further actions here, I was instructed to see an Ophthalmologist back home in Vancouver, Washington when I return after 4/13/18.  I asked my wife to make me an appointment, the Dr. here believes that I need to get a CT Scan of the area to see what is going on behind the scenes and then take it from there.  She would have done the continued treatments here, but since I am leaving in 6 days, I will not have enough time to complete the required treatments that she is recommending. Anyway, it looks like I’ll live, but all the feedback internet information that I got from family and friends was way off (thanx for trying everyone, I know you did your best to comfort me) and I am very happy that my wife insisted that I go to the hospital today to get it assessed.  I will not be taking any more meds here, the ones I received from the Marriot Dr. only made me light-headed and dizzy and did not have a tangible effect on this swollen gland.But, I must say, today was an “eye-opener”, pardon the pun.  The medical treatment services and staff here are top-notch and the total bill was RP500, which is ~$7.5 USA, that’s right, ~7 bucks!!Cynthia, I love you, thank you for taking care of me and getting me hooked back up with my transport driver from the hotel.  She wouldn’t leave my side until I got back into my car, this treatment just doesn’t happen very often in the USA, we have a lot to learn!  You guys at AIG have also been excellent, thank you all for the love!

Lasik surgery is the best treatment available. All thanks to god for getting back my eye sight back and the next person would be Dr Rohit Shetty. Well Experienced doctor and god bless him. 10/10, would surely recommend NN for Lasik. Surgery was finished within6-7 minutes just a time taken to listen a song. Boom 💥 6/6 eye sight with no pain… awesome experience and already sharing with lot of my colleagues and already 2 more persons got their eye sight corrected.

I am Ahmed naveen from Maldives.
I was looking for a place to do Lasik eye surgery because I need 20-20 vision for joining pilot course. So my friend referred me to narayana Nethralaya.
I was welcomed really well by Ms Cynthia Roy who is the head of international department. She helped me throughout the entire process and made sure that everything I needed was available. After all the tests and approval for surgery by Dr. Rohit Shetty I was counciled by Ms Girija who explained all the do’s and don’ts of the surgery. The surgery was very painless and the results are really good. Over all the experience was really good.

As we came to India for a short duration, our concern was if the procedure will be helpful, however staff and doctors were very co-operative and motivating. I would like to thank wholeheartedly mrs girija and mrs Shruthi for all the support and help. Lastly, my humble thanks to Dr.Rohit Shetty for the fantastic performance of the surgery. Having vision with out using specs is out of the world feeling which cannot be expressed through words.:-):-):-):-)

Narayana Nethralaya has a great team of doctors and technicians. Very efficient and smooth process. I have been a regular patient of this hospital for 15years now, for regular eye checkups, etc. And just yesterday, I got LASIK done to both my eyes. It went smoothly and now I have more than perfect vision. I am very happy with their post-operative care too. Their staff are very friendly and took good care of me. Dr.Rohit Shetty

It was a pleasure interacting with the staff and doctors of Narayana Nethralaya. The support staff were really helpful at every stage of the procedure. During the actual procedure Dr Rohit Shetty and his staff made it a very smooth and stress free experience.

I recently underwent LASIK and it was performed by Dr Rohit Shetty. My Cousin was the one who referred me to Dr Rohit Shetty. He is very renowned in the field of refractive surgery. He’s one of the best doctors in this field. The hospital itself is very research oriented, so they will perform all sort of test before they agree on performing LASIK. They are also very up to date with the technology and equipments. I am very satisfied with my LASIK results. Dr Pooja, Dr Harsha and the entire Staff were very helpful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who’s planing for a LASIK.

My experience with Narayana Nethralaya began with Cynthia Roy, their international coordinator. She was very helpful and kind to our entire family. From there, the process moved very quickly and efficiently as the competent staff performed many tests to determine if I was a good candidate for lasik surgery. After evaluating my results, Dr Rohit Shetty thoroughly explained the procedure that was most appropriate for me. I was excited to discover that the equipment used here is state of the art and allows them to perform more advanced corrections than current practice in my home country. I received very good care and while the full affects of the procedure can not yet be felt, I am confident that I will have near perfect vision after recovery. I am very pleased with the improvement even after less than 24 hours and am grateful for the individualized care I’ve received.
