It is great for us as a hospital thriving for excellence in eye care to receive an acknowledgment from a person who has been decorated at countless platforms nationally and internationally when he compared the hospital no less than the most renowned eye care super specialties of the country. He said,"I have visited all the best eye care institutions for my Retina treatment. But, the infrastructure, diagnosis, and treatment are at par with any institution in the country that I have received here at Siliguri Greater Lions Eye Hospital. Indeed it is the most trusted and biggest eye hospital in North Bengal and Sikkim"
He was operated for Macular Hole by Dr. Krishna Kanto Roy, our Retina surgeon and an alumni of Sankara Nethralaya, Chennai and recovered his vision remarkably. In his own words "Why go Nepal or anywhere else when we can receive world-class quality in care within North Bengal. I hope, this facility and its mission surely reaches to all in the region"
