Eye7 (http://www.eye7.in) is proud to announce that founder and director, Dr. Sanjay Chaudhary, will be receiving the “Highest Number of ICL Implanted in India” Award in October, at the WORLD ICL in Lisbon, Portugal. This award places Dr. Sanjay Chaudhary distinctly at the forefront of surgical advances in vision correction and eye care in India and around the world, as it recognizes Dr. Chaudhary for reaching 3,500 ICL implant surgeries – the most in India. For the past three years, Dr. Chaudhary and his firm have received this award, which marks Eye7 as being a top practice in the field of eye hospitals and vision correction.
With over 30 years of experience in eye care, and 12 years of implanting ICL’s, Dr. Chaudhary has consistently remained a lead surgeon in the field of ophthalmology.

However, unlike a contact which must be removed regularly after wear, the ICL remains in the eye permanently, and is a permanent solution for vision issues. ICL surgeries have become more popular in recent years, as they do not require creating a corneal flap and tissue remove, like in LASIK and other laser specs removal surgeries. Additionally, they do not have the side effect of intense dryness of the eye, an effect that can be found in the aftermath of laser eye surgeries, such as LASIK. Typically, the ICL surgery is a quick,…
