Fly In For Your Gulani Vision
We are privileged to be the vision surgical choice of patients and eye surgeons all over the world. Here you will find some suggestions summarized by many of our worldwide patients to make your vision journey with us a memorable experience.
What if I live out of Town/State or Country – how does that work?
That is absolutely fine as patients from all over the World seek Dr. Gulani regularly. Despite being one of the most sought after eye surgeons in the world, Dr. Gulani will make time to personally see you in a detailed consultation where he himself checks your eyes, interviews you and reviews all special diagnostic tests to arrive at a surgical plan designed uniquely to your eyes. He loves questions and likes to make sure you fully understand exactly what is wrong with your eyes and how he suggests a customized plan with a unique Technique, Technology and Target approach to your best possible vision.
In certain cases for out-of-country/ out-of-state patients and their eye surgeons, we may schedule a personal Teleconference/Video Conference with Dr. Gulani where he reviews your medical records, educates and answers your related questions before you travel to us. Do kindly write a brief cover letter explaining your condition, previous surgeries, present vision status and goals to us (do include in this cover sheet, your best telephone number and email for us to contact you). Also, please request your eye doctor to email us (or you can email them to us yourself, please click here if you require a medical records release form) your most recent eye exam reports to include:
- Vision with and without glasses and contact lenses (Best Corrected Vision)
- Refraction (Glasses number). In cases of corneal scars, a Hard contact lens over-refraction
- Corneal Topography and OCT. In cases of corneal scars and Pterygium/Pinguecula, a Slit Lamp photo of the scar or Pterygium /Pinguecula. (In some cases you or your friend may be able to use a handheld camera/smartphone as long as it shows the condition in best detail possible).
- Health of the eye to include no glaucoma or retinal pathologies and if so, proof of control.
Once you (and possibly your eye doctor) have had a Teleconference with Dr. Gulani, you will be assigned your own personal Vision Counselor at our institute to assist you with your entire process. Your Vision Counselor will coordinate a review of your records by Dr. Gulani and then personally contact you to discuss his preliminary recommendations.
Then when you are ready, your Vision Counselor will help you schedule a visit for exam, treatment and follow-up exam all within the same visit. Your Vision Counselor can also help coordinate your local follow up doctor in your state or country. Think of your Vision Counselor as virtually being with you every step of the way, by your side, from your initial contact with the office through your return home for your follow up care.
