Keshava, a true winner

Born with congenital glaucoma in both eyes and currently with functional vision only in his right eye, Keshava Reddy Dugnoor, 38, today has to his credit four masters degrees, with the most recent one being “Master of Finance” from Iowa State University, USA. He is a lifetime member of the “International Honour Society of Beta Gamma Sigma” and presently works at Nationwide Insurance - Fast Switch Ltd, Ohio. Despite the extensive surgeries he underwent since the tender age of 9 months, and the rigorous treatment regime he is currently following in the USA, Keshava truly has overcome all odds and proved to be a winner.

“My association with LVPEI started in 1997. By then the institute was offering the very best in eye treatment with social consciousness as its forefront motto,” recalls Keshava. What followed thereafter was a series of surgeries and recoveries. “All the doctors, especially Dr Virender Sangwan, Dr Anil Mandal, Dr Somasheila Murthy and Dr Raja Narayanan who treated me and the support staff at LVPEI have been fabulous and compassionate. Thank you for the positive transformation you all are bringing in lots of lives,” says Keshava. Passionate about music, writing, travelling and photography to name a few, he is also committed to giving back to the society and is associated with various development organizations as a volunteer. It is stories like that of Keshava’s that motivate the Institute to continue working ceaselessly towards its mission “So that all may see”.
