Eye Foundation Patient Experiences

Patient Experience

Sunil Pai

While playing badminton in August 2020, I got hit on the eye with the shuttle. It was a powerful hit and I immediately knew that there was going to be some damage. Went to emergency at a nearby hospital and they an they asked me to consult a eye surgeon next day. The diagnosis was that there is some damage to the eye lens and I was provided with medication and advised rest. Over the next couple of weeks the eye healed and resumed my normal activities and slowly started playing badminton again. Over the next couple of months I started feeling that my eyesight was affected and I could not sight the shuttles properly while playing. On consulting the doctor again in November 2020, I was diagnosed with Traumatic cataract with Inferior Zonular Dialysis and suggested scleral fixated IOL surgery. This when I consulted Dr. Ashraya Nayak, vitreo retinal surgeon at The Eye Foundation, Coimbatore who is an expert in scleral fixated IOL surgery. He then suggested to undergo IOL surgery with CTR with Dr.Shreesh Kumar and in case of any inadequate capsular support , he said a scleral fixated IOL surgery will be done. Thanks to the expertise of Dr.Shreesh Kumar who successfully managed to implant the IOL in the bag with the help of CTR After the successful operation on 14th December 2020 and recuperation of 10 weeks, I was feeling absolutely fine with my eye sight. I resumed my badminton and subsequently started playing and winning tournaments again. At the Indian team selection trials held in September 2021 at Goa I have been selected to represent India at the BWF World Seniors Championships to be held in Huelva, Spain from November 28th. I am very greatful to Dr. Ashraya Nayaka and Dr. Shreesh Kumar of The Eye Foundation for their expertise and advice in helping me get my sight back and help me to resume my badminton career.

I’d been visiting Eye Foundation, since 2006/2007 for my eye checkup. A couple of weeks ago, I’d visited the hospital for my annual checkup, and I’d complained about blurred vision on my left eye.

The technicians performed a scan and confirmed that the results indicated an issue with my cornea which needed an emergency surgery ASAP.

A huge thanks to Pallavi, Divya and Gayathri for analysing and detecting the issue after taking multiple scans/tests and guiding me through the entire process.

If the scan had been missed, I don’t know for how long I would’ve had to face vision trouble.

I wasn’t able to drive at night, I wasn’t able to focus on the laptop and work for hours together. My vision was double and blurred until last week and post surgery, my vision seems to be a lot lot lot better and sharper.

This is not a regular Lasik, the process was named Topoguided and I had to go through a laser surgery to fix the cornea issue.

My left eye was operated by Dr. Chirta Ramamurthy and my right eye by Dr. Ramamurthy. A million thanks to them for performing the surgery successfully.

By the way they talk, and by the way the explain the issue and the process, one would automatically get the confidence that they are in the right hands.

I’d like to give a major shoutout to Sujatha, Karthiyahini, Raghul, Mohanapriya and Saranya who were always around whenever I needed them. Hats off to their hospitality and the way they treated me.

Baduga folks, if you need anything, you can feel free to reach out to Sujatha, Karthiyahini, Raghul and you’d feel home, as always.

Thank you Eye Foundation and team, you’ll proved me again that you’ll are the best, as always.

All the very best!

An extremely happy patient

This eye hospital was very clean and maintained

இந்த கண் மருத்துவமனை மிகவும் தூய்மையாகவும் பராமரிப்புடனும் இருந்தது. அனைத்து மருத்துவர்களும் திறமை வாய்ந்தவர்கள். டாக்டர் ரவி ஐயா அவர்கள் நன்கு பரிசோதனை செய்து விளக்கமும் அளித்தார். அனைத்து மருத்துவமனை ஊழியர்களும் நன்றாக கவனித்து கொண்டார்கள். எனது தங்கை ரேணுகா அனைவரையும் நன்றாக கவனித்து கொண்டார். இந்த பரிசோதனை எனக்கு திருப்திகரமாக இருந்தது. எனக்கு நம்பிக்கையும் அளித்தது. அதனால் எனக்கு மிக்க மகிழ்ச்சி. அனைவருக்கும் நன்றி. (Translated by Google) This eye hospital was very clean and maintained. All doctors are talented. Dr. Ravi Iya examined them well and gave an explanation. All hospital staff took good care of him. My sister Renuka took good care of everyone. This experiment was satisfactory to me. It also gave me hope. So glad I did. Thanks to everyone.
