For and on behalf of the entire family and my own behalf thank you once again.”
I am feeling high as if I had a bottle of Bacardi. The operation wasn’t painful. Indian doctors are renowned the world over, so I thought coming here.
Centre for Sight is the one of the best places offering the latest technology for all eye related problems and with implantation of Crystalens, now my world is so clear that I can do all the things I wanted to without reaching out for my glasses.
I had undergone a cataract operation in childhood after which I became blind due to corneal opacity. I could only see faint lights, could not differentiate between colors and had to depend on my brother for even moving around the house. After my surgery at Centre for Sight, Delhi now I can see, eat on my own, chat with friends, write and can also drive a car by myself. I am very happy that I am able to do all these things and become fully independent, thanks to Centre for Sight team.

Underwent Standard Laser
I liked the environment at Centre for Sight. The staff is very supportive and co operative. I got to know about Centre for Sight from my friends and relatives. I had an eye power of around 3 D in left eye and 3.5 D in the right eye. I faced a lot of difficulty due to my glasses and wanted to get rid of them. I chose Centre for Sight because I knew I am in safe hands. I would definitely recommend the hospital to my relatives and friends.
I am absolutely satisfied and happy with the way Centre for Sight works. The staff is highly cooperative. I had been using glasses for the last 16 years and was highly irritated because of them. Finally, I got rid of them! My hearty thanks to CFS who made this happen.
I had been using glasses for the last 10 years. I wanted to get rid of them so my family doctor advised Centre for Sight as the best place for getting the procedure as the equipments and facilities are of best quality and latest technology. Now I can see clearly without any hindrance between my eyes and the beautiful world.
I came to know about Centre for Sight from the internet. CFS’s website was very good and informative. Information about the procedure and its advantages was given in detail. The surgery itself was very smooth and short. I could even talk while the surgery was going! Moreover it cost me a meager amount of money as I would have been paid in UK. My experience at Centre for Sight was very good and after the surgery I am very happy and satisfied.
I had very high Myopia due to which I had to use glasses all the time. I just wanted to get an off from my glasses. I got to know about CFS from the internet. I found the staff very satisfactory. They explained me about the procedure in detail. After the surgery my vision is 6/6. I am very happy and thankful to all doctors and staff here. I would advice everybody to go for Centre for Sight for any eye ailment.
I had been wearing glasses for the last 22 years. I was having a very high myopia and very high cylinder number i.e. +10 in both the eyes and +5 cylinder. I had visited almost all the leading doctors in India and everybody denied to operate on my eyes as surgery could not be done on my eyes. My friend told me about CFS. So I came here as my last hope of leading a normal life.On my first visit I was quite worried about what doctors would say…but thanks to Dr. Sachdev who was confident that iLasik can be performed on my eyes. He made me relaxed. His confidence really gave me a hope of getting rid of glasses.
I got the iLasik procedure done from CFS. I have been wearing glasses for the last 9 years. Earlier I had lack of confidence because of my irritating spectacles. I needed my glasses as soon as I would wake up. But now after iLasik, I feel amazing as if some magic has been done on my eyes. I am highly thankful to Dr. Sachdev for giving me my new world which I can admire, feel and see without the hassles and hindrance of glasses in between.
I Think I have seen the Best Eye Hospital with all facilities. My all wishes with Centre for Sight.

“Very Modern, Very Well equipped. One should say ultramodern, the patients would be given the best of treatment. It may graduate into a place, where not only treatment would be given to the patients, but R & D would be done. I wish the doctors and those who work here, all the best. May it develop into an institution which gives physical and spiritual vision. Spiritual vision would flow out of the dedication with which the institution is built and run.”
We are a small family of professionals from Nagpur. We had been blessed with our first child, the apple of our eyes. We first saw a twinkle in the eye of our newborn son when he was a few months old. We were so happy thinking of it as a spark of brightness and never thought that anything would go wrong.
When our baby grew up to be a year and a half old, we detected the sparkle in both his eyes. I felt this was not normal and took our son for a check-up with an ophthalmologist in our city. The doctor checked my boy and wrote a prescription advising a consultation with Dr. Santosh G. Honavar of CFS immediately. The very same evening we, that is my wife, my son and I flew to Hyderabad and got an almost immediate appointment with Dr. Santosh. After various tests our son was diagnosed with "Bilateral Retinoblastoma" meaning cancerous tumour in both eyes.For a layman this means tumour in both eyes in children.
We were completely shattered. After the initial shock, we realised that we had to be strong and tackle the illness. We learnt that this is common in children but the causes for this kind of cancer in children are not clear. I checked my family history up to three generations- myself, my father and my grandfather, but there was no history of the disease. So, it was possible that my son contracted this during gestation.
The treatment plan was drawn out by Doctor Santosh. He is a very experienced doctor in his field.His expertise made us feel more confident. Soon, the treatment to eliminate the tumourstarted. Early detection byDr.Santosh and timely intervention made the treatment easier- withuse of chemotherapy and laser.
In the Centre, we met parents of other children undergoing the sametreatment. It was really an eye opener to find how other people dealt with this issue. We would exchange experiences on how to cope with the situation, like being prepared for eventualities, handling emotions etc.
The treatment was not as expensive as we thought it would be. We were also given the option of paying in instalments- through easy EMIs. This was Godsent because it is very difficult for a middle-class familylike ours to raise fundsquickly, includingtravel expenses. Ultimately when my son started getting better, I alone accompanied him for treatment. The interactive and efficient staff also made it easier to manage our son during treatments because only I was accompanying him. The staff at CFSis very child-friendly and more importantly,they know what exactly an unwell child needs.
As my son's condition improved, the frequency of visits reduced. From visiting once in every three weeks, to once in a month, then once in two months and then gradually to once in a year. An annual check-up is still required.
Thanks to Doctor Santosh and his team, my son, now 9 years old, leads a very normal life. He just needs to take care that he does not hurt his eyes, but he goes to school regularly, plays games like basketball and does everything any normal 9 year old would do. I would give all credit for my son's recovery to Dr. Santosh and the staff at Centre for Sight.
I am a 23 year old post graduate,a very studious and a hard working girl. All through my school and college life I had to wear glasses. I was called names like “four eyes” “book worm” which gave me such a complex that I started seeing myself as seriously boring.
After my post-graduation I decided to unwind, to have fun in life and also get a job. The first on my to-do list was to get rid of my soda-bottle glasses. I checked out the available technology and got to know about Lasik treatment. Lasik surgery is a popular procedure to correct sight problems like short sight, far sight and astigmatism and verypopular with the youngsters who do not want to wear spectacles.
After checking out with friends, I zeroed in on Centre For Sight (CFS), as it was closest to my residence and had the best reviews. I took an appointment for consultation with the LASIK specialist. I was impressed when I came in for the first meeting.I stepped into a clean and pleasant atmosphere. As they say, first impression is the last impression. I met with a consultant and after checking my eyes he said I was short sighted. I asked the consultant if there was a procedure which could restore my eyesight and get rid of the grandmother glasses. He suggested LASIK surgery.
He explained that it was a very short procedure, performed under local anaesthesia. In this procedure the cornea is adjusted to let light enter and get perfect vision.
We fixed on a date, and I went through some blood tests. The day of the procedure arrived. After an early dinner the previous day, I went to the Centre on an empty stomach for an 8 am procedure. The surgeon put eye drops which numbed the area and did a quick procedure in no time at all.
I was asked to come for review the next day and was very pleased because now I had 20x20 vision. I was thrilled. No more glasses, no more nick names.
Not only did I recover my vision but I also got back my self-confidence.
Armed with my confidence and my degrees I am ready to take on the world. Thank you Centre For Sight.
At age fifty (50) I started having problems with my eyes. My vision started blurring and sometimes I even had complete but momentary loss of vision. I was very concerned and immediately contacted my friends and family who had recommended Centre for Sight.
After I came to know that the Chief Minister of Telangana got himself treated here, I had no doubt that this was the best place to get my Cataract treated.I got an immediate appointment for consultation. After checking my eyes the doctor asked me whether I had any more concerns about my eyes. I thought back and reported that of late I could not see in dim light and I was also sensitive to bright lights. I thought I was imagining haloes around bright lights. I knew I was not colour blind but colours seemed all faded and dull.
The doctor checked my eyes and opined that I had developed cataract in both my eyes. My first question was “how could this happen”. The doctor patiently explained that this condition is very common in people above the age of 45. There is no cause for this condition.Cataract is very common and means "clouding" of the eye's original lenses which results in obscuring, and, if not treated in time, loss of vision. It is more commonly an age related condition. Sometimes it also affects children and young adults. It is completely treatable with no side effects.
I asked for treatment options and the doctor explained that with surgery they would replace the affected lenses with new eye lenses. Medication would be of no help in clearing the vision. There would be a gap of a few days between each eye surgery. After discussion with the family we finalised a date for the surgery.
I am scared of surgeries and asked the doctor if we could delay the procedure. Patiently the Doctor advised that the procedure would get more difficult if delayed, because the cataract would thicken further and make it more difficult to remove. If treatment got delayed then I could lose my vision completely and become handicapped, making every day routine of life difficult. I understood the pros and cons( although hardly any) and agreed to go through the procedure.
A few days before surgery, I had to undergo various blood tests and eye measurements. I also met the surgeon and the anaesthetist. Meeting the attending doctors gave me a lot of confidence, as they explained that it as a non-complicated, bloodless surgery under local anaesthesia. I was advised to have an early dinner on the day previous to the surgery and nothing to eat or drink on the day of the surgery as it was scheduled for 8 in the morning. On the day of the surgery the anaesthetist gave a small injection so I would not feel anything. The procedure of changing the lens was done in no time at all. I was out of the theatre in no time with a protective bandage put on the eye. After being on observation for a couple of hours I was allowed to go home.
Going home was wonderful but I needed a lot of care. I had to keep the bandage on till the invisible sutures were removed. I was given protective dark glasses and eye drops to be put at regular intervals. Bright light and pressure were to be completely avoided. After a few days the same procedure was performed on the other eye. A week after the second surgery I had crystal clear distant vision. No scars or marks.
All in all it was a pleasant experience. The Centre, the doctors, the nursing staff were all very patient, polite and well informed about their work. I would definitely recommend Centre For Sight to everybody.
