Went through LASIK surgery few days back. Special Thanks to Dr.Rohit Shetty for giving me the freedom from spectacles after 14years. Entire supporting staff and counsellors were helpful at all stages. I strongly recommend this place for those who are planning to undergo LASIK treatment. Believe in Technology and believe in your doctor.

I got my LASIK refractive eye surgery by doctor Rohith Shetty. I was extremely happy with the result and would recommend others as well. The staff members were really helpful and the hygiene was well maintained. They are happy to help you with all your queries. I was asked to revisit for my routine checkups so that they could guide me through any other problem I would suffer. I was extremely happy with the hospital and the staff there!

As someone who’s been using glasses pretty much all her life, I was looking to get a corrective surgery done. Initially, I went to another popular eye hospital but wasn’t fully convinced with to ahead with the procedure. I then visited Narayana Nethralaya just to get an opinion on the different kinds of surgeries available but was immediately convinced to get my eyes corrected. After a couple of tests, I met with Dr. Rohit Shetty who advised against LASIK due to my high refractive index and suggested ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) surgery instead. I spoke to Dr. Pooja Khamar, who specialises in ICL at Narayana Nethralaya, and was assured that my eyes are in safe hands. Rightly so, the surgeries were smooth and without complications. If you are looking to get a corrective surgery for your eyes, Narayana Nethralaya is the place to get it done.
