Dr. Varsha Karad
Dr. Varsha got inspired to do specialization in ophthalmology by looking at the tireless effort of her professor-ophthalmologist to use his knowledge to help all of patients. And from there her masters degree from MIMSR medical college,Latur, Maharashtra, helped bolster her true passion and talents to restore or improve a person’s vision through corrective eye surgery. She believes that it’s her gift to provide such eye care and to add an invaluable quality in to patients’ life. She gives back to community, volunteering her time with eye camps across the state, helping paramedics diagnose cataracts, trachoma, and other infectious eye diseases.

In addition to these outreach programs, shehas independently performed over 4750 Small Incision Cataract Surgeries (SICS), many Glaucom, enucleation – squint surgeries and has also assisted senior consultant doctors in complicated cataract surgeries in quite possibly hundreds of instances.She aspires to build a comprehensive eye care facility at both D S Karad Eye Institute & Dept. of Ophthalmology, MIMSR Medical College, Laturalong with her husband, who is also an ophthalmologist.
