  • I was suffering from acute keratoconus in the right eye , and my case was a very typical one as it was only in one eye and that too progressed very rapidly, when I went to Dr. Maskati for consultation he gave me the best possible option for my case, and I was scheduled for a DALK surgery (cornea transplant) within only 15 days!!! Of my first consultation, it was a successful surgery and I have been going for regular checkups and my vision has improved tremendously and I thank Dr. Maskati for his unparallel support both on the OT & off the OT.”

  • I have been Dr . Quresh Maskati's patient since 2001 and have been suffering from dry eyes. He has improved my eye condition to a great extent. I have undergone two major surgeries. He had performed DALK on my left eye in 2012 and the intra optic lens on my right in 2015. In both the surgeries I had complete reliance on him and today I am feeling much better in terms of vision and the level of dryness as well.

  • Dr. Quresh Maskati had performed an excellent surgery when my retina detached in my right eye. He minimized the loss of vision and was able to save the eye. Subsequently, six years later, I underwent a cataract surgery also in the same eye by him and that too was a success . I am very pleased with the surgical skills of Dr. Maskati and recommend his services to anyone seeking any form of eye treatment.

  • My name is Huzefa.Bhopalwala and I am twenty one years of age, currently in third year MBBS . I was diagnosed with Retinal detachment in the right eye in April 2013 and was operated on by Dr.Quresh. Maskati. This happened 20 days before my university exams of First year MBBS. Not only did Dr. Maskati successfully operate on me , but also assured my family and me that I would completely regain my sight after the surgery and that there was nothing to worry about . His kind and assuring words helped me remain calm and study for my exams without any worries. I got a second retinal detachment in February 2014 , this time in the left eye. The risk of complications was higher this time. I was told by one of the other doctors that I had a fifty percent chance of regaining complete vision . Dr. Maskati was confident enough that all would go well and just like in the right eye, I would regain complete vision. He operated on me without wasting any precious time and just like he had said , the surgery was successful and I regained complete vision . Dr. Maskati is not only an excellent ophthalmologist , but also a wonderful human being . His faith and belief that all would turn out for the good, helped me with both my surgeries . His enthusiasm to help the society was observed by me , when I approached him for a medical symposium on Organ Donation. He gave us his precious time and also listed down measures to increase corneal donations in India . He is a true inspiration for budding medicos like me. I am thankful to him beyond words . May God bless him and help him achieve even greater heights.

  • Dr. Quresh Maskati of Mumbai, India, has been treating me for the past 15 years for all my optical problems, including human cornea transplant surgeries. Three years ago, he performed Artificial Cornea (imported from Boston) Transplant surgery in both my eyes - a new and upcoming method - that we had only read about. Thanks to his knowledge and steady hands during the surgery, clear vision has been finally restored in both my eyes. I have now normal vision and can read the tiniest of print without any glasses. He has helped us tremendously through our struggle. He has been most patient with us, answering all our questions and putting us at ease during this difficult time.Thank you very much!!!

  • Dr Quresh Maskati is certainly one of the best eye surgeons in Mumbai and for that matter even in India. Recently I visited him for my father’s eye complication, Mr BK Chaudhari, aged 83 years. He lost vision in his left eye in Oct 22 due to posterior synechiae, with earlier history of endophthalmitis suspected due to inflammation arising out of multifocal Intra ocular lens and lately macular degradation. The local surgeon, also a retina specialist trained from Japan informed that nothing much can be done now. I took various second opinions from leading eye surgeons in Mumbai including one retina specialist of a national level hospital. All of them suggested that the vision has gone, nothing can be done, and any efforts of surgery would be waste of money. But Dr Quresh Maskati said that there is a fair chance that patient can see again. He took support of Dr Rumi Jehangir Sir, his senior partner and together, they conducted corrective surgery and vitrectomy on my father’s eye. I am happy to share that the surgery was successful and my father could see again. Atleast 50% vision has been restored in the eye which had no vision for 2 months. So If you are a patient or a relative and you find that your eye or patient’s eye is showing up problems which your present eye surgeon cannot effectively handle or resolve, then Dr Quresh Maskati is the GO TO Man in such a situation. Rather than running here and there for multiple opinions in complex cases, one visit to him for a second opinion can put to rest all the concerns. If by chance you are a practising Eye surgeon and come across any complicated case in your practise which you find it difficult to resolve then you can also guide your patient to Dr Maskati to take a second opinion. There is no harm is suggesting your patient to visit a senior doctor for getting best advice which will benefit him. Your patient will thank you for this reference. If you are medical student and aspiring be a good expert eye surgeon, please browse through the literature published for Dr BT Maskati’s contribution in eye care and Dr. Quresh Maskati’s references in complicated eye procedures like Boston Keratoprosthesis and be inspired by their work and you should also aspire to get trained under him . The greatness of Dr Quresh is he is ever willing to take challenging cases, unlike other doctors who shy away from handling hopeless cases fearing that a failure in such complicated procedures would tarnish their reputation through negative reviews posted by patients. We need such surgeons like Dr Quresh Maskati who are bold enough to take the unbeaten path. Dr Quresh Maskati is very simple, down to earth person and very helpful. Any question posted by patient on what’s App is replied by him in less than 1-2 hours maximum. The support staff is also qualified and can solve many of patient’s doubts without disturbing Doctor. The consulting clinic is very conveniently placed. Its bang opposite platform 4 of Charni road station just 30 metres away from station premises. The appointments are well placed so waiting time is minimum. Regarding the pricing of services I can only say that precise craftsman ship comes at a cost but it is better to get the work done by an expert though its at a price. Having said this, one should not feel that Maskati clinic is costly. I have seen so many blind patients who come to the clinic for subsidised or even free medicines. If there is finance issue I am sure Dr Maskati will go out of the way to help the patient. His consulting clinic is also worth visiting and spending some time. One can see the notice boards showing his contribution, articles on Eye care and we can also get to see the gallery of awards placed there which are decorated on him. And the best one which I liked there were Murphy’s teachings So Great work Doctor, God has placed his blessings on your work and his grace works through your hands. Please keep the good work going.
