Testimonial

“The level of expertise, technology and dedication is astounding. Regarding Cataract Surgery, I felt the doctors at Sankara had much to teach me! This type of exchange is so valuable to allinvolved. The theatre, refractive surgery center and hundreds of non paying as well as paying patients leave inspirational impressions which will stay with me forever.”
