      Dr. Sudarshan is an expert in the treatment of pterygium and has lectured at Texas Tech University on the subject.

      As a testament to his care philosophy, Dr. Sudarshan relies on the use of an amniotic graft in order to ensure that his patients avoid making the expense of undergoing multiple surgeries to treat this condition.

      Dr. Sudarshan is also one of the most experienced cataract surgeons in the Rio Grande Valley, and is an expert in the use of advanced intraocular lenses for cataract surgery. As a result, his patients are treated without any stitches or shots!
