Dr. Rishika Chauhan : Meet Our Doctors

Dr Rishika Chauhan was born in a family of doctors. Since childhood she had seen her Grandfather organising free eye cataract surgery camps to help the less affording and less fortunate. She used to accompany her grandfather while he was organising these camps as well as during the camps. 

She saw how patients with No  or very poor vision would often come in - supported by a family member - unable to walk even to the washroom as they could not see.  And how after surgery they could walk unaided with a smile on their faces - being able to see their loved ones faces. 

Her father- A doctor too - taught her - The more you help people and give to the society the more God will smile upon you.

Somewhere all this registered, along with the desire to give people vision - to see the beautiful world around us. 

Since a child Dr Rishika knew she wanted to become a doctor and give people the most important sense - the SENSE of SIGHT- VISION. 

Dr Rishika Chauhan completed her MBBS from a AJIMS (2003) – after which she pursued her Post Graduation in Ophthalmology - from 2009 from MS Ramaiah Medical College -one of the best medical colleges of Bangalore. She also underwent training in LVPE Eye Institute, Hyderabad – one of India’s topmost Eye Hospital with leading eye care solutions.

Following this she did her fellowship in Phaco and Refractive Surgery (LASIK/ SMILE/ ICL)  - 2012 to 2013 in Nethradhama Super Speciality Eye Hospital under the expert guidance of world-renowned Phaco and LASIK surgeon -Dr Sri Ganesh. 

During and post her fellowship Dr Rishika Chauhan taught and  trained several young surgeons to hone their skills in cataract surgery. 

She authored and published several international papers on LASIK and SMILE surgery in renowned journals of ophthalmology – Journal of refractive surgery and international Journal of ophthalmology. 

She is one of the reviewers of articles sent for publication in international Journal of ophthalmology. 

Dr Rishika Chauhan went on to work as a Consultant in Vasan eye care Hosur 2014 to 2016 where she performed over 3000 PHACO surgeries. 

Dr Rishika Chauhan has also been associated with multiple charitable institutions – Narayan Seva mandal, Ghatkopar East;  Lions Club Ghatkopar and PramukhSwami Eye Hospital Chunabhatti. 

She has done several outreach programmes and arranged thousands of free eye checkup camps and cataract surgeries. Dr Rishika has been heading the Eye department at Sharan Hospital since the last five years and has performed 3000+ Phaco surgeries and 500 refractive surgeries (LASIK and ICL).

Cataract can happen at any age nowadays. For any disease you need a good treatment and a reliable doctor. In 2018 cataract was detected in both my eyes. Left eye cataract was more. My Uncle referred me to Dr. Rishika Chauhan. Dr. Rishika is one of the best Eye doctors. The best thing about her is she doesn’t treat you like a patient but family. I got both my cataracts done. I received the best treatment for my eye. I found the right doctor at the right time and got the right treatment. 


Very happy with Dr. Rishika Chauhan and treatment we received at Sharan Hospital. My mother was operated for Cataracy both eyes. And my wife also got her DCR Surgery and was admitted in Sharan Hospital. My wife was anxious before surgery. Dr. Rishika explained very calmly and surgery proceeded as planned. Both are doing very well. 


Sharing my experience with Sharan Hospital, located at Ghatkopar West. It's one of the renowned hospital in this area. The hospital caters to all the needs of your eyes with an excellent team of experienced doctors and helpful staffs.
We went there for the Cataract surgery of my mother. Initially she was afraid of operation but Dr. Rishika Chauhan explained her the whole process and convinced her that everything is going to be smooth. Since my mother is a Diabetic and Hypertension patient moreover, her HB level went down at the time of medical examinations. Operating on her both eyes with this medical condition was not lesser than a task.
The operation was successful and my mom is very relieved. Hospital is well equipped with the latest technology equipments and machines.


I recently got operated for cataract and I must say that Dr Rishika is soft spoken , compassionate, and extremely talented. I know very few doctors who are genuine and Dr Rishika Chauhan is one of them. Sharan Hospital is  well maintained and has very helpful staff. Everyone in the hospital is very kind and I feel lucky to be treated by Dr Rishika. I pray to Almighty that he bless her with a lot success.


All our family members go to Sharan Hospital for any eye or orthopaedic problem. Dr. Rishika Chauhan very calmly listens to us , gives her full time for detailed checkup. We get the best treatment at sharan hospital. Dr. Rishika is the best cataract surgeon in mumbai and Ghatkopar. All family members and neighbours have been operated by Dr. Rishika Madam.
