It was a commendable.job by Dr Prashanth at Narayana Nethralaya Ashok Nagar who performed cataract surgery in my both eyes recently. I experienced good level of comfort during the surgery. I am happy with the outcome of the surgery that resulted in significant improvement in my vision Procedures went well despite the fact that I am a diabetic for 40 years and had undergone laser treatment on few occasions. Dr Ptashanth is dedicated experienced and was helpful in guiding me with right choice of procedures and lenses best duited to me.His well versed team of support made me feel at ease..The rest is now in my hands to maintain the improvement in vision. The hospital has a professionally managed counselling desk as also an efficient corporate desk to.help and guide the patients. The hospital also has experienced personnel running with the daily chores.
