I am Amandeep S Narang from Pune, an IT professional. I was blessed with a baby boy on 5th March 2011. Two months later we came to know that the baby was suffering from a cataract in the right eye.
We were stunned and feeling very helpless, wondering what we could do to save his vision. We raced around to get eye check-ups done from the best eye specialists and hospitals from Nagpur, Pune and Bombay, as per the suggestions of our near and dear ones. Days passed, but we did not find a solution to my child's problem as every doctor had his own opinion but was not ready to take up surgery due to the age of the baby. A few even scared us by saying he could lose his vision.
Then I came across L V Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad, while searching online. On 17 May 2011, I got an appointment with Dr Amit Gupta. Positive vibes began right away when I met your excellent staff members Premila & Pravin who pampered my child and understood our feelings during this difficult time, while balancing it with their official responsibilities. They are very strong pillars of this institute. About Dr Amit Gupta, all I can say is, "God understands our prayers even when we can't find the words to say them!" My family and I will always be thankful to them.
My experience with L V Prasad Eye Institute was beyond my expectations. With their help such a major surgery happened so smoothly and, in no time, they offered me a safe and healthy future for my child. Thanks from the core of my heart to Dr Amit Gupta, Premila and Pravin…indeed you are real saviours!
