It is rare that we come across the likes of Dr Nita Shah who appears to be on a mission to provide her patients not just treatment but an incredible experience in eye care.
The spark in her vision translates into sparkle in the eyes of her patients. An Academic topper of Grant Medical College Mumbai, Dr Shah moved from strength to strength by obtaining MS in Ophthalmology to building THE EYE CARE DESTINATION of today - Aayush Eye Clinic A unit of Dr. Agarwals Eye Hospital and Lasik Centre. The beginning was made in the year 1992 with a 10-bedded hospital in Chembur, Mumbai - Aayush Children & Eye Hospital along with her husband Dr. Amit Shah, a renowned Paediatrician and now we have the Fully Equipped Aayush Eye Clinic A unit of Dr. Agarwals Eye Hospital.
Other feathers in her Scholastic cap are fifth position in Bombay University in MBBS final, The Nusserwanji Fakirji Surveyor Gold Medal for highest marks in Final MBBS, The Khan Bahadur Jamshed Rustomji Gold medal for highest marks in Ophthalmology in final MBBS and First position in College and third in Bombay University in M.S. (Ophthalmology).
An academic achiever par excellence, Dr. Shah proceeded on her journey of learning to that of imparting knowledge along with treating patients during her stint as faculty of prestigious medical institutions like KEM Hospital, Seth G.S.Medical College, H.J. Doshi Hindu Sabha Hospital, Sion hospital LTMG Medical College and K.J.Somaiya Medical College.
As an experienced teacher, she has many publications to her credit including Indian Journal of Medical Sciences, Journal of Post Graduate Medicine and many more. Not only this, Dr. Shah attended numerous eye camps both as a student and as a professional. Free camps are periodically conducted at her clinic, which speaks volumes about her social responsibility and serving the underprivileged.
Dr Shah was appointed on the Panel of Consultants for Air India in the year 1991. She started performing Laser treatment for the Retina with Diode Laser in the year 1995 and also performs Photodynamic therapy for macular degeneration in indicated cases.
For the last two decades she has been performing Sutureless Cataract Surgery with Oertli Phacoemulsification system (Switzerland) and now the world best Infinity Phacoemulsification unit of Alcon with Ozil technology with foldable Lenses.
Armed with all these credentials, Dr. Shah expanded her learning horizons. It was her continuous quest for knowledge and urge to excel in her profession that she went on to be mentored for learning Laser Vision Correction (LASIK), besides constantly updating her clinic with ultra-modern surgical procedures, practices and equipment.
Not only this Dr Shah participates in numerous national and international conferences and it is worth mentioning that she is a member of the prestigious American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
