MBBS ( Mum), MS (Ophthal.) FAICO (LASIK.)
A few years ago, an MBBS student was exposed to the areas he could choose from. It took him some time to see that seeing matters a lot. Vision, as he realised, is of utmost importance to people and a major part of their life relies on it. It is one of those small things that matter the most.
While reading this text, there is an imaginary voice in your mind. It is pleasant and has its own charm. Imagine a situation where somebody else had to read it out for you. The voice suddenly loses its charm, doesn't it? Small things like looking at your own palm, or staring at the blue sky, or may be the stars at night or, let's say something bigger, like looking at the mirror, or the face of a loved one are joys that life chooses to gift.
But not everyone is fortunate enough to witness them. The realisation that these joys are real and may mean the world to someone dawned upon Dr. Hardik when he performed his first cataract surgery. The patient was genuinely pleased to be able to see things around him again and Dr. Hardik just realised that he could give someone their vision back. This was his calling, and since then, his life has been dedicated to improving people's vision.
And today, his journey is a quest to ensure that people are aware and open about achieving perfect vision. He takes every necessary step to ensure that one is completely aware of the process before making a choice to avoid or accept it. Besides that, being a good listener gives him the added advantage of hunting the fear in you down and eliminating it. He has an eye for your vision.
