Doctor's History

Dr. Kareeshma Wadia's elder brother Jehan Wadia was devoted and caring. However, he left for his heavenly abode on the 1st of December 2002, at the young age of 20 years.
Dr. Kareeshma was pursuing her medical education at the time, so she was deeply affected by the loss of her brother.
But in life, he only spread happiness even after he was no more. Because of his family's decision to donate his eyes, his pristine healthy corneas were given to two individuals, who probably are leading a better life and blessing him for the same.
Dr. Kareeshma was inspired by this to try to help everyone who was having vision problems, particularly the many individuals in our nation who had treatable corneal blindness.

Dr Kareeshma Wadia and our caring team are ready to provide you the expert care. Don’t hesitate to reach out, we are just a call or click away. Take the first step towards better eye health today.
