Good eye sight is very important in all sports. With impaired vision, or vision with external aids, practically deters the performance of sports persons. In my practice, i see many youngsters, who are crippled with Myopic vision defect, and have to wear glasses, but ambitious for sports like swimming, tennis, cricket etc. I have treated many of them with refractive surgeries, and lasers like permanent implantable collamer contact lenses, Lasik lasers, and SMILE. In todays world of sports, vision is very important to play to perfection and win.
The idea of giving life time eye care card to Gopichand Academy is to remove the barricade of vision disorder for all young sports persons, so that they bring more and more laurels to the country.
