Most memorable patient reaction:

One of the most memorable moments of my career was when I performed cataract surgery on a Haitian immigrant who had been legally blind (able to perceive only hand movements in front of her face) for 20 years. After the surgery, she was overjoyed to find out that she could see 20/20, and tears streamed down her face. She exclaimed in Haitian Creole that she was finally able to perform daily tasks and enjoy her quality of life for the first time in years, just like she did in her youth!

At Arora Eye, we are proud to offer innovative dry eye treatments that use amniotic tissue derived from placental membranes. This cutting-edge approach stimulates the cornea's natural stem cells and provides constant lubrication to the eyes, effectively curing dry eye syndrome. Our patients have experienced significant relief from symptoms like dryness, irritation, and blurred vision, and we continue to explore new technologies and treatments to improve their overall eye health and quality of life.
