One of the victims, Bhiku Pathan (55) said that he experienced irritation in his operated eye after three-four days of undergoing surgery, and when he went to the hospital for a follow-up, he came to know that he has lost vision in that eye.

One of the trustees of the Hospital, B B Gogiya said, "The seven persons who are complaining of loss of vision are being treated at the hospital. There are many reasons for the reaction; like they may not have followed the doctor's instruction (on) quality of eye drops and other individual physical parameters."

The Hospital has sent the laser machine used for conducting the surgeries for testing at a laboratory, he added.

Gogiya said Dr Hetal Bakhai who performed the surgeries was a qualified ophthalmologist. The hospital has been doing such type of operations since last one decade, but this is the first such incident.

The seven persons who complained loss of vision are identified as Naniben Chhenani (63), Sarojba Jadeja (60), Pravinsinh Chauhan (62), Ibrahim Juneja (85) and Ramnik Damani (56), besides Sandhi (40) Pathan.
