Mrs. Ujwala Wagh, 75 years old, visited Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute from Pune on 17th April 2014. She came with a complaint of diminished near vision in both her eyes since the last 4 months. She had been using progressive glasses since the last 2 years. She was also diabetic.
She was diagnosed as having cataracts in both her eyes. In fact, the cataract in her right eye had gone on to progress to a brown cataract.
Mrs. Ujwala Wagh's detailed eye test also included a consultation with a Retina Surgeon. She consulted Dr. Yogesh Patil, a Vitreo- Retinal Surgeon at Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute. On examination she was found to have macular degeneration of her retina. Dr. Yogesh Patil advised her to treat her macular degeneration before she underwent Cataract Surgery. After her Retina treatment, she underwent successful cataract surgery for both her eyes on 4th September by Dr. Vandana Jain, Cornea specialist at Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute, Sanpada.
Here is Mrs. Ujwala Wagh's patient experience:
"Everyone made me feel very comfortable here. All staff, including doctors were quite supportive.
The pain and fear I had of losing my vision was well cared for, with love and affection by doctors and the staff of Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute.
When I will go back to Pune I will recommend Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute to all my friends and will tell them that it is worth making a visit here for all eye complaints even from Pune. Dr. Vandana Jain, staff and the environment, everything is excellent."
