Hi, my name is Amit, and I am 21 years old from Hisar. I was wearing glasses with a power of -5.5, and my prescription kept increasing, making it difficult for me to study for long hours.
Eye-Q is a well-known hospital in Hisar, and my uncle recommended it to me. The staff and doctors at Eye-Q were incredibly helpful, and my surgery went really well.
I am very satisfied with my experience and would suggest everyone visit Eye-Q for any eye care needs

Amit

Lasik Surgery’s Patient

Hello, my name is Anupma, and I am 24 years old from Lucknow, currently studying architecture. I’ve been wearing glasses since childhood, and because I love modeling, I often had to remove my glasses in front of the camera. It was quite inconvenient.
A friend suggested I consider LASIK surgery at Eye-Q hospitals. The doctors and staff at Eye-Q were incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the process. I am extremely happy with the results of my surgery.
I highly recommend Eye-Q for anyone considering LASIK or needing eye care. They truly take care of all your eye needs.

Lasik Surgery’s Patient

My name is Shagun, and I am 26 years old from Gurugram. After wearing glasses for 10 years, I wanted to get rid of them, along with my contact lenses. My mother’s friend recommended Eye-Q for LASIK surgery, so I decided to give it a try.
Before the surgery, I was a little scared, but the doctor assured me that everything would be fine. The entire process took hardly 15-20 minutes. The staff at Eye-Q was really nice and supportive, which made the experience even better.
Now, it feels amazing to see the world without glasses or contact lenses. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome and would highly recommend Eye-Q to anyone considering LASIK surgery.

Shagun

Lasik Surgery’s Patient

Hello, I’m Somya.
Since childhood, I struggled with glasses and contact lenses, hindering my daily life. Last year, my -4.5 vision pushed me to consider LASIK surgery at Eye-Q.
The experience was exceptional. The surgery was quick and painless. Afterward, I opened my eyes to a clear world without glasses. It was empowering.
Today, a year later, I still feel the excitement of seeing without lenses. Eye-Q changed my life. Don’t hesitate—get your eyes tested and see if LASIK is right for you.
Thank you, Eye-Q!

Cataract Surgery’s Patient

Hi, my name is Sunil, and I’m 43 years old.
I came to Eye-Q Hospital in October 2021 as a diabetic with severe retinal and cataract issues. I could barely see three feet in front of me. Thanks to Eye-Q doctors and their team, I underwent two successful surgeries. Before the surgeries, I struggled with basic tasks due to my poor vision. Now, I can see clearly up to 30-40 feet and live independently without relying on anyone else. The staff here treated me like family, always providing positive and supportive care.
I wholeheartedly recommend Eye-Q to friends, relatives, and anyone in need of eye care. Their skill and compassion have truly transformed my life. Thank you, Eye Q, for giving me back my vision and independence.
