I suffered from nearsightedness for which I have been wearing glasses for the past 13 years; and as an accountant I always had to have to make sure the numbers are correct. But with constant hours in front of the computer It was difficult to manage my professional life. My eyes would constantly go dry and turn red and itch. Not to mention the eye pain that followed it. I tried using the lubricant eye drops but with more 10+ hours in front of the computer things took a toll on me. I tried contact lenses but they never helped either. I had to always get rid of them after a couple of hours and having to carry my case, glasses and solution meant extra luggage.
I was looking for a permanent solution for my eyes but never thought there was any. I was discussing my eye problems with a friend of mine who is a science major and she mentioned about LASIK. Since i had never heard about it, i decided to look into it. As a resident of Navi Mumbai; I wanted something that was in Navi Mumbai so that I could manage myself. After a lot of research I came across Advanced Eye hospital and Institute (AEHI) located at Palm Beach Road, Sanpada, Navi Mumbai. The reviews I read about AEHI were amazing and is known to be one of the best eye hospitals in Navi Mumbai.
I booked an appointment for the following week with Dr. Vandana Jain, Cornea, Cataract and LASIK specialist at AEHI. I had read about how Dr. Vandana Jain is the best eye specialist in Mumbai for LASIK. I was happy to have found someone who could heal me of my troubles. I visited AEHI on my set appointment date and was amazed to see the humble caring staff. The hospital is well maintained not to mention that every nook and corner is clean. I was made to undergo a series of eye test where they ask you to see the vision chart and color charts etc and then was sent to consult with Dr. Vandana Jain. Dr. Vandana Jain was so loving that I forgot I am in a hospital for surgery. She made so feel so comfortable.
I described as to why i wanted to opt for LASIK and also discussed how my vision is affecting my life. She heard me out and after testing my eyes said I was fit to undergo LASIK. I was described the whole procedure and asked whatever questions I had to and got them cleared.Dr. Vandana Jain is pretty straight forward. She never gives one false hopes and tells them exactly what should be expected and what can be done. This is one of the many qualities that I admired about her.
On the O.T day i was anxious but Dr. Vandana Jain made me feel comfortable by handing over a teddy bear and said hold on it for a bit and it would make you forget your worries. Though i thought it was childish at the moment but it did work. I held on to the soft cute teddy bear and the anxiousness did reduce. She again described the whole procedure which began with numbing my eyes by adding numbing drops. Then an instrument was put to keep my eyes open so I don’t blink during the LASIK procedure. All i had to do was stare at a red light and that was it. At first I could see the red light well and then it became blurry in between as Dr. Vandana Jain had mentioned and i was back to seeing it again. The whole surgery took like 10 minutes only and that was it. After the LASIK surgery, I was moved to the recovery room for about half an hour and sent home and asked to come back for followup the very next day. I had antibiotic eye drops and other medications to take which I followed religiously.
I can see clearly today without any dry eyes or pain. I can not thank you enough Dr. Vandana Jain and AEHI for all that you did for me. Dr. Vandana Jain is the best eye surgeon in Mumbai and a great person. Also the staff at Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) does make it the best eye clinic in Navi Mumbai.
