Dear Dr Jalali,
I am a developmental paediatrician currently based in New Zealand. We would like to thank you for the e-mail advice provided to my father regarding a retinal problem. On your advice, I contacted Dr Narayanan who promptly arranged for my father's assessment.
My father is 80 yrs old and last week experienced a visual deterioration, in that he was unable to read and write. He saw an ophthalmologist who diagnosed macular degeneration; "dry" and scarred macula in the left eye and "wet" in the right eye. My father also had a few background medical issues which I had discussed with Dr Narayanan on phone. On his advice, he has received his first intra-vitreous injection and we are waiting to see how he responds to it.
My father has asked me to thank you for pointing us in the right direction. I would also like to thank all your team and particularly to Dr Narayanan for all his inputs.

"Good Morning. I hope my email finds you in the best of times. My name is Keshava R Dugnoor, your Boston-Kpro patient since 2010. I am doing good. I have completed 2 semesters of my MBA course work (GPA 3.9/4.0) and will be graduating in May 2014. Health is stable but for intermittent pain in the right eye. However, I am regularly taking eye drops as prescribed. I have replaced the Bcontact lens in the eye myself 3 times over the past 9 months.
I am greatly indebted to you, to the fellow doctors and to the team of wonderful people at LVPEI for giving me a new lease of life."

Dear Dr G Chandra Sekhar,
“I would like to offer my sincere gratitude for consenting to see Olivia thoroughly and make an assessment of her eyes. I wish to state that we were truly impressed by the professionalism, standard of medical care provided and of course the attitude and efficiency of all the doctors we met during our visit to your hospital. Hats off to your wise leadership and for the service your hospital provides to the community. The services provided and the time management far surpasses the clinic/hospital here in Auckland.”

No, that is too formal. I would much rather say my dear Prashant. Thank you very much for the courtesy and attention I received at LVPEI. What I like very much is the attitude of your people. They are such a caring team - in the corridors, the consultation rooms, the de-robing ante rooms prior to surgery and in the theatre. It seems all pervasive and I reckon that is a rare thing in India today. I wish you the very best in the years to come.

“This is to place on record the excellent services rendered by Anil K Mandal, Glaucoma Specialist at your Hospital. My wife, Smt. Konkepudi Suvarchala Devi, 70 years is being treated for glaucoma and was operated on 26-3-2013 in her right eye under Premium Package.
Dr. Anil K Mandal, who treated and operated her right eye, is most humane, courteous and smiling. He infuses courage in the patient and makes them comfortable, removing their anxiety, fear and tension about their eyes. He explains to them about the treatment and operation that is necessary for them. He does things with a very reassuring manner, with all kindness.
We wish to thank Dr. Anil K Mandal profusely and express our grateful thanks to him through your office.”

Dear Dr Rao,
Many thanks for arranging the visit to the Institute last Saturday. Sam gave us a VIP tour, and patiently answered all our questions although we bombarded him incessantly for 1½ hours.
You have done an absolutely amazing job, and the facilities and the research (behold the stem cell work) can hold a candle to any major university in the world. Knowing from Peter Laibson that you started from scratch makes the accomplishments even more stunning. The visit to the Institute was not only the overwhelming highlight of the trip, but in terms of relevance to real life and humanitarian impact probably beats anything we have seen for many a year. (And we travel a lot...)
We heard you received an award for your humanitarian work, and cannot imagine a more worthy recipient.

I happened to visit your hospital at Banjara Hills, along with a relative. Your staffer Vanita Ganesh (Associate Administrator) is one of the best in terms of her behavior and helpful nature to the patients. The way she interacts with patients and their attenders is highly appreciable. I congratulate you for having such good staff members.

Thank you for the wonderful job your team did on 18-4-2012 for my OD cataract surgery. I was so tense, but the assurance given by Dr Somasheila Murthy helped me opt for local anesthesia, instead of general. The doctor not only saved the unnecessary expenditure of general anesthesia, but saved me and my wife from a lot of anxiety and tension.
Any institute or organization runs on the efforts of dedicated individuals. Dedicated doctors like Somasheila are a great asset to any institute. I would like to see her in this prestigious institute for a long time. I thank her and her wonderful team. I may not see her again, but one's relations should be like what a great philosopher said, "Do you know the relationship between two EYES? They blink together, they move together, they cry together, even though they never see each other."

PS: We have been involved in donating eyes since 1979. Recently, on April 17, we donated the eyes of my aunt Pulizala Shakuntala Bai to LVPEI. So far we have donated 17 persons' eyes, through our circle of friends and relatives

The grand scale of LVPEI's work is such that it can be easy to look from the outside and not truly consider the impact that your endeavours have on each individual. The story from LVPEI's rehabilitation group is certainly a timely reminder of how important each person is within your institute.
Indeed, the progress you continue to make throughout your eye care pyramid is remarkable - from the community work to the honours received by your scientists and clinicians, LVPEI is as always a shinig example to healthcare organisations of any kind.
As we enter into 2011 we at the Champalimaud Foundation are proud to be associated with you and your team at LVPEI and I wish you a very happy holiday season and another successful and productive year.

This is a lovely story (Coming back to life -- Vijaya Madhuri) ... I thought it was extraordinary the summer camps you run for visually impaired and blind kids. This is difficult to find in NA let alone India.
Ms Pat Ferguson, President, Operation Eyesight Universal, Canada
The new website is really excellent by the way. In reading it and the annual report I was again struck that LVP has become a very large, complex and sophisticated organization. It is hard to comprehend all the activities with the institute as a whole that comprise the work of LVP. I believe it truly is second to none anywhere.
I continue to be annoyed that LVP does not always get the international recognition it deserves — something I would like to discuss when I see you in New York. We are struggling with some of that ourselves. I also was curious if it would make sense to highlight how many non-cataract (complex) surgeries and services are provided at no
cost or a subsidized rate — I still think this is exceptional and not well understood.
Anyway congratulations to all your fine staff who are very clear about LVP's mission and deliver such extraordinary service across the entire institute.

I was going through the 2008-09 LVPEI annual report today. It is truly very impressive full of commendable items of all-round progress. There are notable developments at every tier of the pyramid. My good wishes to you and every member of the Institutes expanding family for continued success.
