A Carefree Attitude with Contact lens Damaged My Eye But AEHI Saved it


A summer hot day always calls for a nice dip in the pool. Being an avid swimmer, I could never stay away from the pool. Since high school I have always loved heading to our clubs pool and swimming.Unfortunately due to my high power for which I have glasses; I opt for contact lens during my swim period.


After a few sessions of swimming; one following week, I noticed my eyes began to turn red and was accompanied with pain, sensitivity to light and a lot of tearing was present. Then ext day while I was attending one of my mechanics lectures, I noticed I couldn’t see clearly. Disposing it as a timely thing due to lack of sleep or a change in the power of my glasses, I didn’t consider visiting an eye specialist. 2 days later the eye pain grew worse and I couldn’t see anything clearly. Everything was hazy. My eye too looked different than usual creating a stir in me and my parents and we decided to get an eye specialist’s opinion.

As a Navi Mumbaikar; the first name that comes to mind for an eye hospital is Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) for it is the best eye hospital in Navi Mumbai. My parents rushed and took an appointment with Dr. Vandana Jain, Cataract and Cornea Specialist.

As I stepped in Dr. Vandana Jain’s consulting room, she seemed concerned just by looking at my eye. As we sat down, she asked a couple of questions about how it all began. I was asked to sit in front of a machine through which Dr. Vandana Jain, Cataract and Cornea Specialist analysed my eye. She mentioned that I have an infection caused by an amoeba in the eye which has eroded the transparent layer of the eye called as cornea. Dr. Vandana Jain mentioned I would need to undergo a few more tests for it which would require samples of the infection.An anesthetic eye drop was added to my eye and sample was taken by brushing over my eye. Dr. Vandana Jain works with such precision that one wouldn’t feel that she has touched the eye. After she was done taking samples, she explained how the infection was caused because of an amoeba that crawled into my eye because of swimming and the use of contact lenses hygienically worsening it. She mentioned the damage was deep mandating an eye operation.


I couldn’t believe that my swimming and careless attitude with contact lens led to a serious problem in my eye. My parents were tensed and asked Dr. Vandana Jain multiple questions about the eye operation. She addressed their concerns which calmed them down. I was scheduled for an eye operation. I was taken to O.T and numbing eye drops were added. I was very nervous the minute I got into the Operation Room but Dr. Vandana Jain went through the steps discussing how necessary this was to save my eye. Her words ” save my eye” resounded in my head and a sense of bravery rushed through me. She began to work on my eye. It took an hour for my eye operation and in no time I was out of the doors of AEHI on my way back home.I was asked to put some eye drops and medications were given to avoid any complications and infections. I had to follow-up regularly to know how my eyes were doing.

Today I am blessed with my normal eyes again. I can’t imagine how life without my eye would have been. Dr. Vandana Jain is the best eye specialist in Navi Mumbai for she is skilled to treat not just an eye problem but also bring about the hope and confidence that one looses when they see a disability approaching them.

I learnt my lesson to not take my eyes for granted. Initially I was reluctant to use my contact lens again but now I have overcome that fear; thanks to Dr. Vandana Jain. I make it a point to always take care about cleaning my contacts before I put them back in my eye. I would always be in debt to AEHI and Dr. Vandana Jain for blessing me with a new life.
