Indore: Addressing the gathering on the second day of 77th Annual Conference of All India Ophthalmological Society, on Friday, Dr Mohit Gupta from Govind Vallabh Pant Hospital, New Delhi, highlighted the techniques of brain programming and mind powering to treat patients.
While sharing his personal experience, Dr Gupta said, “We can treat severe diseases with the help of yoga and meditation. I was having three infections in my brain, one surgery was done and two were remaining. To avoid the surgeries I trained my mind with help of meditation for three months.
After three months when the tests were conducted the remaining two infections were not present.” Organising committee chairman Dr RS Choudhary said that cornea surgeon Dr Rajesh Fogla from Hyderabad highlighted THE technique of cornea surgery during the conference.
Dr Fogla said, “There is a need of nearly 50,000 cornea transplants in the country in a year but only 25,000 operations are done. Due to less awareness about eye donation, many people are not receiving cornea transplants. Committee secretary Dr Satish Premchandani, Dr Mahesh Somani and Dr S Bande said that on the second day seminars on various techniques for treatment of eyes were organised.
The doctors treating eye patients with unique technologies were also felicitated with International Ophthalmology Hero of India Award 2019 during the programme. Dr Arun Sethi, Dr Reena Sethi and Dr Vineeta Pathak Roy were among those who were felicitated.
The doctors attending the programme paid tribute to the martyrs of Pulwama terror attack by observing silence for two minutes. Organising committee’s Dr Sudhir Mahashabde said that a replica model of a Chennai’s museum where 200 year old techniques for eye treatment are exhibited was made at the conference.
