About Blink clinic he says,

The Importance of Ethical treatment in Medicine can never be overemphasized. I feel very proud to mention that at Blink, all the procedures are done only when indicated. Whenever we foresee any risk to the eye sight, we do not perform the procedure. This enhances the safety and success rate to the highest possible level
