  • A few decades ago, most cataract surgery operations in India particularly those targeting low-income or rural populations were done in makeshift operating rooms in villages. The technology was old, and the conditions were typically subpar, with little follow up. However, as India recognized that its growing number of blindness resulted from untreated cataracts, things began to change. Over the past several decades, India's eye care system has made tremendous strides. On the back of strong leadership, innovation, funding, and government support, eye care has improved, and more people have gained access. Besides, the Indian model for eye care has welcomed Multispecialty hospitals with open arms. However, this is not the case in Tier-II cities like Ahmedabad. Turning the tables around is Dr. Sapan Shah's Multispecialty Hospital called Dr. Shah's Superspecialty Eye Hospital.
