Cataract Training and LASIK Training in India
Centre for Sight-New Vision Laser Centres (CFS-NVLC) is a leading chain of ophthalmological eye care centers, primarily specializing in laser refractive surgery in India. We are also a leading centre for cataract training as well as LASIK training in India. We are a part of the Centre for Sight group of eye hospitals, led by Padmashri Dr. Mahipal Singh Sachdev. We have centers in Vadodara (Baroda), Mumbai (Bombay), Rajkot, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Bhavnagar, Anand, Udaipur, Rajahmuhndry, Bharuch, Vapi, Vizag, Kurnool, Kadapa and Jamnagar, and Surat. In addition, Centre for Sight has superspeciality eye centres in many cities of India, including Delhi, Agra, Meerut, Jaipur and Indore. Founded in 1995, we have treated over 10000 eyes in the last 22 years. Since 2003, we are also operating a high volume cataract surgery center in Vadodara.
CFS-NVLC has state of the art facilities at all its centers. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of medical and surgical care. Our eye surgeons are also highly trained, committed individuals who have a lot of experience in cataract and refractive surgery.
The Group Medical Director of Centre for Sight-New Vision Laser Centres is Dr. Rupal Shah, who is a well known eye surgeon. She is the one of the pioneers of laser refractive surgery in India, and she is the first person to perform single-incision SMILE surgery in the world. She has been deeply involved with the evolution of laser vision correction technology over the last 22 years, and has several publications and book chapters on laser vision correction.
Hundreds of doctors have obtained LASIK training at New Vision Laser Centers-CFS. More than 25% of all practising LASIK surgeons in India have performed their first LASIK procedures in our courses.
We are also extremely well regarded for our cataract training courses. Our one-on-one approach, with only one trainee at a time, and our ability to provide lots of patients in a short while, allow trainees to come up to speed fast. We offer only phacoemulsification training. Unfortunately, at the present time, we are unable to offer SICS training.
Please note that if you are a foreigner, or for some reason are not registered with the Medical Council of India, we require you to be registered before we can take you up as a trainee. You will find more details of the MCI registration procedure here.
