‘Sharp Sight’ hospitals to treat ‘poor’ pellet victims for free

Srinagar: Sharp Sight (Group of Eye Hospitals) on Monday announced that all the pellet victims who belong to poor families will be treated free of cost at the hospital.

Thousands of protesters were injured in protests last year in 2016 when the Indian Armed Forces resorted to the use of pellet guns against the protesting crowds.

Addresing a press conference at the Hospital’s launching ceremony in Srinagar, Dr Samir Sud, Director Sharp Sight said that the hospital management has decided to treat all the pellet victims, who don’t have resources for the treatment, to treat them free of cost at its Srinagar centre in uptown Srinagar.

Pertinently, Sharp Sight has opened a world-class tertiary eye hospital in Srinagar to serve the people of the valley at affordable prices.

“The hospital will provide comprehensive eye care solution for all eye related diseases and super specialty clinics for Retina and Glaucoma,” a statement of the Hospital said here.

Sharp Sight is also introducing for the first time in the valley Zepto Pulse Technology, the latest in Robotic Precision Cataract Surgery, the statement said.

“We felt that there is an urgent need of high quality eye care facility in the valley of world class standards, many patients had to travel to distant places for their eye care treatment which directly/indirectly imposed a financial burden on them and their families. Our newly built eye hospital will reach out to the people of valley to provide quality eye care to one and all,” said Director Sharp Sight (Group of Eye Hospitals) Dr Samir Sud.
