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.
