My daughter Jahnavi

“My daughter Jahnavi was born with a series of life threatening complications – congenital heart problem, cataract and rubella. The doctors in my village were reluctant to operate her. When I met the experienced and efficient team of doctors at LVPEI Visakhapatnam, I knew my baby was in safe hands. She was just 27 days old when the first surgery for cataract removal was performed by Dr Merle Fernandes, supported by the anesthetist team. Her right eye was too small for the intraocular lens to be fit in, so she was prescribed contact lens. This resulted in improved vision but later she developed squint, followed by lazy eye. Things were not easy; no good school was ready to admit her. To my utter happiness, Dr Virender Sachdeva successfully treated her eye problems. Today Jahnavi goes to a good school and I am proud to share that she is doing very well. Our journey with LVPEI has been just amazing and I will be ever thankful to her treating doctors and the entire staff.”
