I am a retired mechanical engineer but always believed in staying active. That is my mantra of well-being. With my son living in London, I keep commuting between Mumbai and London time to time. In recent times, besides my social charity work I developed an interest in gardening. I used to love gardening which led me to my passion of being a volunteer to beautify our environment.
During one of my gardening sessions, I accidently pricked myself while planting an Aloe Vera plant. At first, I thought it’s not a big deal and was just my carelessness. But this kept happening repeatedly. I did have glasses, but my vision never troubled me.
I thought its best to get an eye specialists’ opinion as I could tell something was wrong with my vision. I had visited a doctor in London and he diagnosed me of cataract. With just 2 days left to be back in Mumbai, I thought its best to get myself operated in Mumbai.
My son was very concerned about my cataract, but he did some online search and found out about one of the best eye hospitals in Navi Mumbai. The more he dug deeper in his pursuit of finding the best eye hospital for cataract; his search always would lead him to stumble on Advanced Eye hospital and Institute (AEHI) near Palm beach Road, Vashi. He was pretty impressed with the feedbacks of patients; the blogs doctors write to create awareness and various eye check camps that they conducted. He called AEHI and discussed with the staff and set an appointment with them.
Since I reside in Navi Mumbai; it was an icing on the cake situation for us to have one of the best specialty eye hospital in Mumbai to be in Navi Mumbai.
I went in on my set appointment date. Everything was well disciplined with happy smiling staff that saw to my comfort. They made sure all my needs and queries were attended to. One of the best things about AEHI is the fact that the staff believes in interacting with all their patients. At AEHI the environment is not only friendly but also methodical.
I was escorted by the staff to Dr. Vandana Jain, cataract and cornea specialist. She checked my eyes and discussed some of my medical history and informed me about my cataract. My right eye cataract was too advanced. I had to undergo cataract surgery as soon as possible to avoid any complications. I was explained about the cataract operation very well from all aspects including the type of lens available, what is their recommendation, the cost for the overall operation, the after-care of cataract operation and many more. It felt like I didn’t have to ask anything as all my cataract questions were put on plate for me.
Dr. Vandana Jain, cataract and cornea specialist had scheduled the right eye surgery. She guided me through each and every step of the cataract operation. First, she mentioned about the eye drops that she would add in my eye to numb them. Then an eye instrument was used to keep my eyes open for the surgery. I did get a little nervous but the constant talking with the nursing staff and Dr. Vandana Jain helped me deal with it and therefore I didn’t need any unnecessary medication.
My cataract surgery went great. The results were amazing. Dr. Vandana Jain truly is one of the best cataract surgeons in Navi Mumbai. She is blessed with amazing surgical skills and strives hard to do best for the patients. Now, I am back to my gardening and haven't sustained a single prick.
AEHI was one such eye hospital that won my heart. It has one of the best eye doctors, best eye staff and best technology. Today, I can see clearly with my vision and every day I thank Dr. Vandana Jain and AEHI for giving their heart and soul for doing best for their patients.
