My problems started with blurring of vision 4 months ago. The blurring was so bad that it hampered my day to day activities. I have been staying in Navi Mumbai since the early 1980s and knew most of the hospitals in the area. Due to my increasing blurring problems I knew I had to consult an eye surgeon and told my son to decide which hospital would be best for eye surgeries.
My son came to know about Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) at Palm Beach Road near Vashi through his colleagues and recommended we visit for an opinion. I came to AEHI eye clinic and met Dr. Vandana Jain, cataract and cornea specialist. I and my husband did hear a great deal about her. She is known as one of the best eye specialist in Navi-Mumbai and works for AEHI which in a short span of time has come to be known to provide one of the best treatments for eye disorders in Navi-Mumbai. Dr. Vandana Jain diagnosed me of cataract in both the eyes with left eye needing immediate attention. I was worried when I heard about it because having a cataract in both eyes meant trouble. Questions like what if I lost my vision in both eyes, can I get them treated together any sooner, will the wait for the next surgery be months apart troubled me but Dr. Vandana Jain assured me that there was nothing to worry about and it is a simple minor procedure that doesn’t take much time and we could schedule the other surgery sooner than I thought.
I underwent cataract surgery on 25th September 2015 for my left eye. I was taken to the O.T where I grew anxious as I am not fond of surgeries. The fact that I would have instruments in my eye made me worry even more. But Dr. Jain is a very good eye surgeon and made the operation feel like a breeze. In less than half an hour my cataract operation was done. The O.T was very clean and hygienic. I was concerned about the cleanliness of the hospital since eyes are a very sensitive part of the body and I didn’t want any sort of complication or infections arising due to lack of hygiene.
Dr. Jain works so efficiently that I wasn’t scared at all at any point. After the surgery my family was waiting for me anxiously. They knew my fear for surgery and were happy to see me happy. I didn’t have any headaches or pain that people often complain about. During my follow-up as well, I was treated with utmost respect and love. The hospital staff always was very helpful and nice to me. Patients are sad to visit a hospital or even go for a follow-up but in my case, I was always looking forward to go to AEHI hospital. AEHI is well maintained round the clock. There wasn’t a single time when I felt any corner of the hospital needed cleaning.
From not being able to see clearly; my vision improved to the level of normalcy. I loved the eye care services offered at AEHI and the management as well. I was very pleased with Dr. Jain. The successful left eye cataract surgery increased my trust to get my right eye cataract operated as well. My right eye was operated on 24th November 2015 for cataract. My family was stress-free by the time I got the surgery for my right eye cataract done. There was nothing that worried us. The overall process for getting rid of my cataract surgery went smooth. There was not a single time when I regretted getting a cataract surgery done.
One of the best things about AEHI eye hospital is the fact that you have outpatient and inpatient at the same place. Most of the hospitals that I visited would request me to go to another hospital for surgery, another for consult and another for follow up which would have taken a toll on me. This wasn’t the case with AEHI hospital.
Now I can see clearly with my eyes and I have Dr. Vandana Jain and the AEHI eye clinic staff to thank for.
