The World is so Beautiful and Narayana Nethralaya made this world once again beautiful for me. I was wearing glasses from last 16 YEARS and was really struggling even after wearing glasses as I was suffering from high Cylindrical power. I had visited multiple eye hospitals and always got negative feedbacks which made me feel that my life is over and I will never see this world as beautiful as it is. I play sports, love to travel and due to this issue I had never enjoyed 100% and had always thought that people without glasses are so Lucky. But today after 16 years I am ready to enjoy my new life again. I had checked in Google for the best eye hospital and came to know about Narayana Nethralaya. I came and explained regarding my eye problems to Dr. Rohit Shetty and then based on his recommendations went through different scans using world class machines. After all scans/reports I met Dr. Pooja, she explained me completely about my eye condition and suggested me to go for ICL which is a painless procedure. I had read about ICL before but was still having lots of doubts which Dr. Pooja clarified. After that I met Mr. Sunish from Counseling department who explained me once again the complete ICL process. He was so kind to answer all my stupid questions as well with a smile. The best part was Dr. Pooja and Sunish explained me all negative points as well related to ICL which definitely helped me a lot to decide whether to go for this surgery or not. Finally I took the decision. The surgery went very smooth and it was of hardly 7-10 mins. Dr. Pooja kept talking to me during the complete surgery which gave me lot of confidence. I am so so happy that I can’t explain everything here otherwise I will end up writing whole day and still that will not be complete. Thanks to all the Staffs of NN, there were lot of scans and process but it was so smooth that I never felt that I am lost and not sure where to go and what to do. So, once again THANKS A LOT DR. POOJA, THANKS A LOT NARAYANA NETHRALAYA. 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
