LG inaugurates Sharp Sight Eye Hospital at Barzulla, Kashmir
Srinagar/IBNS: J&K Lieutenant Governor (LG) Manoj Sinha on Sunday inaugurated the Sharp Sight Eye Hospital at Barzulla area here.
“This Super Specialty Centre will boost the healthcare facilities of Srinagar and nearby districts,” he wrote on Twitter.
“We had chosen this huge space in order to cater to more and more people but the response is enormous and we are worried if we will cater to the rush of people,” Dr Samir Sud Sud- Medical director of Sharp Sight Eye Hospital said.
Notably, the eye hospital was earlier functional in the Chanapora area of the city and now has been shifted to Barzulla area with state-of-art facilities for the patients.
“Eye is a precious organ and we have specialized treatment for it in our hospital. This hospital uses robotic technologies for surgeries wherein maximum part of the surgery is completed within 30 to 50 seconds,” Dr Samir Sud said.
Dr Kamal who is also the medical director of the hospital said the basic motive of the hospital is to serve the public at affordable rates despite being a private hospital.
“People should keep in mind that this hospital is to serve the people. We guarantee the best technology and infrastructure besides skilled surgeons and compassionate staff,” he said.
He said the motive of the management is also to avoid huge expenditures of people who would earlier go to Amritsar, Delhi and other states for their eye treatment.
“They need not go to any place outside. They can get their treatment done in this hospital at affordable rates and avoid the expenditure on boarding and lodging which they incur outside,” he said.
Meanwhile, the CEO of Sharp Sight Hospital Deepshikha explained the hospital was on the panel of all insurance agencies and people can visit the hospital and get their treatment done on a golden card as well.
