My son had very high power in his eyes and was wearing glasses. Like every young man he wanted to have life without specs. I explored about the place to go for treatment. Then got to know about Narayana Nethralaya, Banglore. I contacted the hospital and was told about the whole procedure very nicely. Reshma madam and Gaytri madam were so polite and nice to us. Dr Rohit Shetty who is supposed to be one of the best in country for Lasik surgery performed the operation which took just 5 minutes. It was done and treated so nicely that I feel this is the right place to undergo any treatment related to eye. We are going wth smiles on our face. Thanks NN.

It’s been a great experience coming this hospital. Everything was well organised and clearly explained. The whole LASIK surgery was painless and done within 15 mins. I will recommend this hospital to my friends and family. Although I do wish I got some more time to talk with Dr Rohit Shetty, who I understand was very busy.
