Dr. Jens Kratholm from Norway visited Gulani Vision Institute with his family and staff.

I traveled from Norway to Gulani Vision Institute in Florida – USA, to witness Dr. Gulani’s work and was fascinated with his innovative approach and surgical outcomes and also got to interact with his patients all of whom were very happy.

He has truly created the future of eye surgery ad selflessly teaching us all.

I recently had the privilege to visit Dr. Gulani’s Vision and office-based surgical suite in Jacksonville, Fl. The office space, the advanced technology testing room, and the patient educational tools were organized in a very efficient way that allows Dr. Gulani and his staff to remain absolutely engaged and focused on patient care.

One of the aspects that impressed me the most was the office-based surgery suite. As a surgeon, I was certain that I was looking into the future of the cataract surgery work space, and I felt like I was in a futuristic scene from ‘Star Wars’. Even with this modern, minimalist, and sleek look, the office maintained compliance with standard of care, safety guidelines, and protocols. Dr. Gulani was providing a peaceful and safe environment for his patients.

After the visit, I concluded that the office and surgical suite reflected the customized and personal approach that Dr. Gulani offers not only to his patients, but also his employees and colleagues. After I left, I shared a message with him by text: “Arun your office is a dream!“

Dr. Gulani is well known in the area of Corneal and Laser Refractive surgery in the major international meetings. He is therefore to be considered an emerging profession, young and promising, with a great potential. My relationship with him is purely professional. I have invited him to speak at some of my courses in European and American meetings. He was nominated Honorary Professor of our University (University of Alicante, Spain) this year to increase this collaboration, as he has important experience in some areas, in which we are interested such as advanced eye surgery & keratoprophesis.

Dr. Gulani is creative and likes to deal with emergent topics and surgical technique. He is easy –going person and has a warm personality.

I have in my observership at Gulani Vision Institute witnessed one of the most unique and trademark type of patient care and outcomes which is not seen anywhere in the world.

Excellent results, honest opinions, personalized well customized treatments where every patient is treated like Dr. Gulani’s own family.

Brain-Storming for each patient’s best vision. Unconventional though logical concepts but absolute bang on 20/20 outcomes even in most complex situations. 

I will utilize these approaches asap for vision 20/20 when I get back to India.

Dr. Gulani is Beyond words; most humble, honest, selfless practice, least marketing, no commercial gimmicks and high ethics business with miraculous care for all including complex, disheartened patients.

All of his staff make a perfect business team for GVI.

I would say Dr. Gulani is an ICON! A trend-setter, unconventional hero, magician of ophthalmic surgery world.

The Gulani Vision Institute (GVI) is an Excellent, Pleasant and modern setup with most advanced technology.  Despite my own status as a nationally renowned eye surgeon with over a decade of experience, I was amazed at the level of work being done especially in Lasik surgery and how Dr. Gulani has turned this surgery into an ART of perfect vision surgery.

Dr. Gulani’s surgical results are Mind blowing. Never seen before. ie. Lasik outcomes, pristine corneal transplants, advanced cataract surgeries, pinguecula, pterygium next day outcomes and amniotic membrane surgeries.

The GVI staff is very helpful with corporate mannerism, surprisingly good academic knowledge about ophthalmology.

Dr. Gulani loves life and people, he makes patients, staff and other colleagues feel close and caring.

I will not only recommend but tell other eye surgeons worldwide that this is the place to learn the future of ophthalmology.”

He has perfected Lasik surgery and has shared his knowledge in many countries with the spirit of professor.I know him as a person with solid and actualized scientific background and honest in his presentations and statistic information.

Dr. Gulani has a unique perspective on how he surgically analyzes the eye as a total optical system. With this type of approach he is able to rehabilitate eyes with various types of corneal and lenticular issues to achieve superb visual results. I look forward to reading and learning from his upcoming textbook regarding this art of vision surgery.

Arun C. Gulani MD of the Gulani Vision Institute has dedicated nearly three decades to perfecting an approach to Pterygium and Pinguecula surgery that generates both an excellent functional but especially a superb cosmetic outcome from day one postoperative. In this book, The ART of Pterygium Surgery, published by Thieme (USA & Germany), he shares his surgical technique pearls in detail with the reader. This is a book worthy of a place in every ophthalmologist’s library.

I have closely followed Dr. Gulani’s career in the United States, read his papers and attended several of the courses he gave at the American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) and other prestigious podiums worldwide.

I had the honor of hosting him at one of my global conferences, the Quintessence of Ophthalmology in Szekesfehervar (Hungary) in 2000, which was an international gathering of leading ophthalmologists of the world.He made an excellent impression with his innovative techniques in refractive surgery, as well as his original works in ultrasonic diagnostic imaging.

He is an excellent lecturer who prepares his papers well, unbiased and informative. He follows his patients carefully. In his papers and lectures he utilizes his own growing and well-observed, well- followed experiences as well as a careful reading of the literature.

In my experience, he accepts only invitations and commitments that he can keep. He is a very, very good teacher and charming, pleasant man, a reliable researcher and a reliable friend. He strives to excel in everything he undertakes.

Dr.Gulani is a committed family man with two children, so he doesn’t accept everything just for the sake of raking up titles, honors and expanding his list of lectures and publications. He only accepts those where he can really contribute to our art and science.

Dr. Arun Gulani is one of the most unique thinkers of our time in ophthalmic anterior segment surgery.

Not only he is a superb surgeon with many innovative instrumentations and surgical techniques to his credit, but most remarkably, he is an original thinker who has devised a unique system of analyzing five “Ss”, which serves as a roadmap for anterior segment surgeons of the 21st century, to achieve maximal surgical and visual outcome for our patients.

Dr. Gulani is daring, bold, creative, logical, innovative, and his patient care is firmly and well grounded on the fundamental principle that no matter what we do, our patients come first and we should do everything to maximize their visual outcome no matter how complex the ocular situation is.

Dr. Gulani’s upcoming new book represents the best of Arun Gulani’s unique and original approach to anterior segment ocular surgery. It summarizes all of the best and most useful and practical pearls that he has accumulated through over a decade of creative thinking and superb operating. The book will be widely read by all ophthalmologists and residents alike.

I firmly believe that it will be an important contribution to ophthalmology in the 21st century in our effort to strive for the best visual outcome for our patients utilizing all modern technologies.

I am a fellowship-trained corneal specialist and refractive surgeon, and a managing partner of Ocala Eye, PA. I was an instructor at the American Academy of Ophthalmology for corneal transplantation surgery training and have co-authored textbooks on corneal diseases and surgery.

As a corneal specialist I deal with difficult cases referred to me by general ophthalmologists. But occasionally I have cases which are especially challenging – these I have sent to Dr. Gulani. His Corneoplastique techniques have had some impressive results I have personally witnessed on my patients I referred to him.

My patients came back to me very satisfied that there is an option for their unusual problems and quite happy with their results.I am impressed by the personal attention that Dr. Gulani gives to each patient. In addition, he always calls me directly to discuss each patient’s situation and status, and this adds a nice personal touch.

Dr. Gulani’s contribution to Ophthalmology worldwide is some of the most impressive work that I have seen in the past few years.

Not only is he a brilliant and talented surgeon, he has systematized an ingenious approach to correcting the eye’s optical system. I believe his techniques can help numerous people. In fact I am immediately referring one of my patients for his excellent care.
