A Geologist Journey from Australia to India for Retinal Detachment Successfully Treated at AEHI, Navi Mumbai


Here we share experience of A Geologist from Australia:-

Mr Hasan Ataf; 40 years old male is a Geologist by profession. He works for an Australian Oil company. He visited India for he couldn’t see from his right eye . He consulted various eye specialists in Australia , but could not find the right treatment for his eyes. A frustrated Mr. Hasan kept looking out for options beyond his city, state and finally country which is when he stumbled on Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI), Mumbai, India. This seemed like a good excuse for him to even visit his family back home in India and decided to visit the best eye hospital in India. He was very delighted with the eye treatment and wanted to share his experience at AEHI with us.


What is Retinal Detachment?

It is an emergency condition in which the retina (posterior part of the eye) pulls away from the supportive tissue. Retinal detachment if not treated on time can lead to blindness.

Why I choose AEHI, India?

I had an injury by falling down in September 2016 and got my right eye injured. The doctor diagnosed the case as vitreous haemorrhage and operated for the same in Australia. But even after the operation, I was not able to see clearly. I was losing my vision day by day. I’ve almost lost my vision and all my hopes of getting it back.  I started surfing on the internet for the best eye hospital in India, wherein I read about Advanced Eye hospital and Institute located at Navi Mumbai, India.  I called AEHI and inquired about the treatment and other facilities to help international patients. The AEHI staffs helped me with my queries regarding my stay, logistics, transport to and from the airport (on advance payments),foreign currency exchange and much more. The best part about AEHI is the fact that they are equipped with the latest diagnostic and surgical technologies. The cherry on the cake was having all the eye Specialists at AEHI under one roof who are trained from the best eye hospitals and Institutes in India and U.S.A. AEHI mentioned that they would manage the post-treatment follow-up via emails and phone calls. Hence I decided and booked an appointment for myself at AEHI.

My experience at AEHI?

As I reached India, AEHI staffs helped me in making necessary arrangements and appointment with the concerned Eye surgeon.  I had a routine eye examination in the optometry department in various machines. Then I was referred to Dr. Yogesh Patil, Vitreo-Retinal Surgeon. Dr. Yogesh Patil checked my retina thoroughly. He diagnosed the condition as Retinal Detachment. He explained me in detail each and every step for the treatment of detached retina.  Dr. Yogesh Patil explained how Vitrectomy will help for the correction of vision.

(Vitrectomy is a procedure in which the vitreous gel is removed from the middle of the eye).

My operation date was planned. And done successfully by Dr. Yogesh Patil. I was been prescribed by some antibiotic and anti-inflammatory eye drops to prevent infection and early healing. In the next day, I was called for my follow up visit. Dr. Yogesh Patil checked my eyes . He said the wound is healing . After a week in my follow up I could see much clearly . Im very thankful to Dr. Yogesh Patil for saving my vision.


All staffs at AEHI are nice. The hospital is very nice and clean. The behaviour of the staff is good . The expertise of the eye surgeons at AEHI is commendable. The overall experience in the hospital is very nice.
