We recently treated a case of Mr. Arif (name changed), 22 year old young male working as a mechanic in a car showroom at Alibagh. Cars have always been his dream. He loved the servicing and repairing of cars. His clients appreciated him for his work as it was the best and no one could guarantee the best quality better than him. Off late, few clients complained regarding his work and he started second guessing his abilities. He was hurt by his criticism for he as a dedicated man and that is when he decided it’s time for a specialist’s opinion.
He was worried about his vision for he was the sole bread winner in the family. The eye hospital in his vicinity checked his eye and gave him few eye drops. Thinking that the problem is taken care of he resumed his work. But days passed by and he still couldn't see things clearly because of which his work was getting compromised.
His boss called him one day to discuss an important issue related to a client's car. Arif was worried that he would be fired and with a heavy heart walked to his boss. To his surprise his boss suggested he visit Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) located in Navi Mumbai. He said it is the best eye hospital in Mumbai and has the best eye specialist who can help him with the right treatment.
Mr. Arif spoke to his father about it and they both decided to travel to Navi Mumbai. The journey was a long tiring one, but they wanted a solution for his blurred vision.
After a travel of long bumpy 5 hours, they reached AEHI. Arif underwent series of tests for his eye before he met Dr. Vandana Jain, Cataract and Cornea Specialist. Dr. Vandana Jain checked his eyes and diagnosed him to have Advanced cataract in his left eye while the right eye was normal. Dr. Vandana Jain described how the treatment option for advanced cataract would be carried out and what to expect.
His cataract eye operation for left eye was scheduled. Dr. Vandana operated on his left eye (Phacoemulsification with PCIOL), and in less than 30 minutes Dr. Vandana Jain finished with the operation. He underwent cataract surgery and was happy that it didn't have any sutures. He was discharged the same day and was very grateful to Dr. Vandana Jain. He was advised some eye drops and medicines to prevent infection and early healing of his eye.
