First of all i would like to thank Sankara Nethralaya Lasik clinic. I had a power of 5.5 in both eyes with cylindrical vision too and was using contact lenses for more than 4 years. I just went for a consultation on lasik but after getting to know about the treatment facilities, i have decided to do lasik.Thanks to Mr. Senthil who explained us about the lasik treatment which gave us a comfort that it is good to do LASIK. First day i went for a pre-check when they checked my power and retina and also corneal thickness whether my eyes are gud to do lasik. It was so easy that we fixed appointment for lasik in a week.

I was really tensed on the day but Dr.Sudhir gave me support i needed for getting relaxed. It was for 1 hour that he performed the surgery and it was painless. Only thing we need to do is that listen to doctor's words and avoid blinking while doing the surgery. Complete rest for another two weeks is essential for your eyes. And use your tear drops regularly. And post-surgery, you have to get your periodic check ups done. i am a software professional and its almost one year since i had taken surgery and i am absolutely fine. My vision is clear and its great that its without my lenses I wanted to thank Sankara Nethralaya team, Dr. Sudhir and Mr. Senthil especially for giving me support and help me gain my vision. I feel really very happy to be treated with SN team. And i wish everyone the same too

As a token of gratitude to “The Temple of the Eye”, I would like to share my authentic views that gave the road to the end of my duress. I had been into the circle of wearing spectacles for the past 10 years and the emerging technologies made to push myself outside the circle. Drifting all around Chennai highly scrupulous, I landed up to a hospital which made me to reverse my decision of going for surgery. The method of operation suggested was ICL, by which I was not pleased and it was not cost effective too. The chaos that prevailed among the doctors for choosing the method of operation made them to act in a temperamental way bulldozing me to accept their appeal right away. This paved a way to forgo the surgery in that hospital.

Then, a week later, I approached Sankara Nethralaya. The art of counselling was at its best wherein I got the complete picture of why I should opt for the Epi-Lasik surgical method. Mr. Senthil Kumaran chief executive of Lasik department gave me much confidence. The medical parameters of my eyes were given precisely rendered by Mr.Senthil Kumaran, after which I convinced myself to take the surgery. He is the man with loads and loads of patience to treat his patients. He was so genuine and concerned in delivering his work and keeps tracking my condition till date. On the day of my surgery, I was informed about what is the process that will be done. Really got relieved of all the pressure and I was very happy on that day, knowing very well the outcome of my surgery.

My sincere thanks Dr. R.R. Sudhir, for explaining all the post operative complications and methods to overcome such things. The post surgical directions were much helpful and informative. I also want to thank Mr. Vijay for his concern towards me and Mr. Lakshmanan, Mr. Samba Sivan- man with unique voice .Each and every one is very much dedicated and we cannot forget them throughout our life.

A couple of weeks later, I realized the betterment in my eyesight changing the way of my life. I was very much impressed by the wholesome travel into the Sankara Nethralaya and thumbs up to all those in that team!

Once again, I put forward my thankfulness to the entire team Dr.R.R.Sudhir, Mr. Senthil Kumaran, Mr.Vijay, Mr. Lakshmanan, Mr. Samba Sivan and I would suggest Sankara Nethralaya as the best for all those who would like to go for treatment for eyesight problems.

I have been wearing specs for about 7 years. I heard about Lasik surgery through friends and I approached Sankara Nethralaya, the best ophthalmology research institution in India. I could get my appointment fixed for consultation within no time.

Mr.Senthil Kumaran had explained me the nature of surgery in a very understanding manner and gave me the confidence to have fearless surgery. Then I was taken for pre operative tests and I was comfortable by the efficient services given by the staff. The surgery was done by Dr.Geetha Krishnan Iyer who counselled me before and during surgery to make myself more comfortable. My heartiest thanks to Dr.Geetha Krishnan Iyer.

Mr.Senthil Kumaran was so courteous to our phone calls for the post operative follow up for recovery. Special thanks to him.

I am pleased to place on record my heartiest thanks to Dr.Prema Padmanaban, Dr.Geetha Krishnan Iyer and Mr.Senthil Kumaran and Mr.Vijay Kumar for the efficient service given to me.

Thanks to Sankara Nethralaya.

The experience at Sankara Nethralaya was amazing. When I decided to do Lasik surgery, I was hesitant in the beginning, whether to do or not. After that when the decision was made, I chose Sankara Nethralaya, as they are the best.

The counselling session helped me overcome all my fears, and I would like to thank Mr.Senthil, who gave me lot of confidence to go ahead with the surgery.

I would like to thank Dr.Prema, who made the surgery very simple and painless.

Now I am recommending all my friends and relatives to do Lasik only at Sankara Nethralaya.

I had been using contact lens for almost 8 years. Being dependant on contact lens left me feel disabled.

Doing Lasik at Sankara Nethralaya is the best decision I ever made. The surgery was over in minutes. The process is quick and painless. I felt a slight discomfort but only for a few hours on the first day. The recovery will be very fast if we observe the instructed precautions. It is like a miracle. My vision is sharp and clear.

Dr.Sudhir, Mr.Senthil Kumaran and their team made me feel comfortable and confident throughout the procedure.

Special thanks to Mr.Senthil Kumaran. He is just a phone call away for all doubts and queries. He took special care not just during the surgery but even now. He keeps track of my reviews and reminds me every time I need a check up.

The work ethics, pre and post surgery consultation and the professional approach of the entire team greatly impressed me. Cheers and keep up the great work.

I wish the team all the very best! Thanks,
