Altri trattamenti disponibili presso Dr. Agarwal's Eye Hospital

The hospital offers a wide range of ophthalmology treatments: robotic cataract, corneal transplants, laser vision correction, treatment for retinal problems, oculoplasty, as well as pedriatric, neuro, and cosmetic ophthalmology. It is one of the few hospitals in India to have a Zeiss ReLEx SMILE machine for vision correction.

Its innovative techniques include the glued IOL (intraocular lens) surgery developed by Dr. Agarwal himself. Glued IOL is for patients with complicated lens problems; it implants specialized IOLs in eyes when a standard IOL cannot be implanted.

Other procedures performed include DMEK, Boston KPro, and PDEK, a modern form of eye transplant with fast healing times and only rare occurrences of graft rejection.



The team at the Dr. Agarwal Eye Hospital is led by Professor Dr. Amar Agarwal himself, inventor of Glued IOL, IOL Scaffold, and the PDEK corneal transplant surgery techniques. He has won a number of awards during his career in eye surgery, including the Best Doctor Award awarded by the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu state, the Kelman Award and the Barraquer Award.

There is also a dedicated team available, named “Global Patient Connect”, to assist all patients and to ensure patients have a pleasant stay at the hospital. The team can assist with patient treatment and travel plans, visa and document filing, accommodation, and dietary requests. Staff at the hospital speak English, Hindi, and Tamil, with interpreter services on offer upon request.

    They have excellent professionals. Senior consultations and expert opinion are the part of their service !!! Very hygienic and neatly maintained. They have an optic store and pharmacy inside !!! On the whole it's one of the best eye hospitals in the city .
    They can improve on patient's waiting time and appointment system !!

  • Radha Mohan, December 2019


    the doctors are good and treatment excellent. definitely expensive by middle class standards. the lady staff at the front desk are more preoccupied with their grooming and appearance and just ignore and avoid patients,besides discussing their personal affairs and joking loudly which we felt was very uncouth and unprofessional.They need some tutoring on manners and etiquette and must reach out more to the patients who need their guidance..amongst the staff we specially appreciate mr.saravanan,who is an asset to the agarwal eye clinic.He is ideally suited for the medical line ...cheerful,helpful,energetic and enterprising....he reaches out to all patients regardless of their status.overall a a good experience! one star less due to hostile attitude of ground floor front desk lady staff.

    It's one of the best hospitals in india. They have a highly qualified and highly experienced professionals. very well maintained

  • Arun Raj, September 2019


    Very bad experience. Free eye checkups done outside are much better that what these guys are doing after charging so much money. Very bad doctors. They are using phones in between the checkup. All they need is money, please provide a better service for the amount that you guys charge. I really doubt they are real doctors. They do not have patience and don’t seems to be interested in answering any questions. Beware of this hospital.
