When selecting an international hospital for your needs, you should consider the hospital’s accreditation, awards and recognitions, and equipments. Check the experience of the doctors as well. Shroff Eye is the only eye hospital to receive the Joint Commission International Accreditation from USA for the fourth time since 2006.
- Send us your medical information. If you have recent reports scan and email us on email@example.com. We aim to respond to your query within 48 hours. If visiting for any laser eye surgery, please mention age, spectacle powers, profession to help answer your query better. We will also write back with an approximate number of days that you may need in Mumbai, India.
- Please note that in most cases the final decisions on your treatment will be made only after the doctor meets you and examines you in person. It is possible that your doctor, upon examining you, may decide you are not fit for surgery, or recommends treatment different from what you planned.
- Passport and visa: You will need a passport for yourself and your travel companion (if any). Depending upon the country you are traveling from, you may or may not need a visa. Visa: We can help you with an invitation letter but would require some details from you. Download this form, fill it and then send it to us. Please note: If you are travelling on a medical visa, you are required to register at the Foreigners Regional Registration Office within 14 days of your arrival. Patients from Pakistan and Bangladesh are required to register their arrival within 24 hours with the nearest Police Station/Commissioner’s Office. Please check with your Embassy for any such necessary requirements as well.
- On the day of your visit, carry a copy of your passport. Our hospital will keep a copy of your passport (Photo page and visa page) in our medical record. This is mandatory and is based on the directives from the Government of India.
- We can also suggest some accommodations close to our locations, depending upon your budget, many having been tried by our previous patients and been satisfied with their services. Most such hotels do give a special rate to Shroff Eye patients from their rack rate for your stay, so do mention the reference of Shroff Eye Hospital to them.
- We accept most major credit and debit cards [Master card, VISA] etc. But check with us regarding acceptance if you are carrying any other type of cards. Cheques need to be cleared before the day of surgery, and our accounts Department will give you details of the same when you visit. Any bank transactions or transfers can only happen once our doctor has confirmed the line of treatment and the costs are clearly outlined. We cannot accept any transfer of funds before your arrival and appointment visit. Although we do not accept foreign currency, there are many Currency Exchange Bureaus in the vicinity of the hospital.
