Patient Testimonial

        I was treated in March 2003 by Dr Salil Gadkari for wet age related macular degeneration of the left eye. Photodynamic therapy (injection of photosensitive drug followed by laser treatment) with Verteporphyrin and further deterioration was arrested. Cataract surgery of the right eye which was affected by incurable dry ARMD was carried out 2 years later. Dr Gadkari’s treatment was characterized by exceptional pre and post operative care and thorough periodic examination to check for changes. His critical discussions and evaluation of recent developments in AMD treatment were invaluable. In spite of a serious visual problem and advanced age, (86 now) I am able to lead a normal life with extensive reading and computer use, for which I am indebted to the personal care and attention given by Dr. Gadkari.

Age related Macular Degeneration

Modern day Ophthalmology has seen an explosive change in how we treat Age related Macular degeneration. 'Vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitors' allow arrest and even reversal of these changes helping to actually restore vision. International clinical studies like ANCHOR and MARINA proved this point.

At Specialty Eye Clinics we are routinely treating such patients from India and abroad using the entire spectrum of Pharmacotherapeutic armamentarium available internationally from leading companies like Novartis and Pfizer.
