Dr. Sagar , God has gifted you faithful hands , let many eyes get the lights to see this wonderful world and bless you always."
"I had come to Kochi from Minicoy, Lakshadweep for my mother in law's cataract surgery. After checking with three four eye hospitals, I chose the Eye Foundation. And I would like to say I wasn't wrong. This is a perfect place. Very good atmosphere with very social & friendly staff. Dr. Gopal was very nice and helpful. Whenever my mother in law enters his cabin he used to communicate with her in Divehi language of Maldives as it was same as our language Mahl. My mother in law liked it. Cataract surgery went very well. Room was also very good. Ward nurse who explained everything after post surgery was also very good. My only suggestion is to improve the canteen service which is now very limited. Nothing else...I'll rate this hospital 100/100. Won't hesitate to recommend to my friends & relatives..."
"I had my right eye cataract surgery done last week in eye foundation hospital and was very impressed with the services rendered to me by Dr Sagar. The care and attention taken by him being me a dialysis patient is to be very much appreciated.

Not the least but all other staffs and even the security person are really worth to be praised for their care given to me. I really enjoyed the services and wish all the best for Eye foundation Kochi hospital"
Number one hospital in kerala.. i visited there for a laser surgery for myopia.. good atmosphere and very good hospital.. staff all are friendly, on each visit they check our eyesight.. i cant stop myself frm saying about Dr Gopal.. he is the senior consultant there... he explained each and everything about the procedure and was too friendly... so i was not tensed before procedure.. and there was another doctor too, unfortunately i dont knw his name, but he was assisting the whole procedure and was too down to earth... i got clear vision after the procedure, since frm childhood i was wearing glasses, so i was sooper excited with new experience... so if u want to do safe treatment to ur eyes my option is one and only, cochin eye foundation... since i visited a lot of hospital before and got bitter experience..
