Hollywood won't, but SHOULD, make a film about this unassuming doctor who literally changed my life by implanting Crystalens AO IOL lenses in both my eyes over the course of two weeks. I keep walking around wide eyed, looking at things I couldn't see before but now can, thanks to Dr. Kandavel. If this man isn't a superhero there isn't one. My title for the movie about him? The Amazingly Incredible Dr. Rom. Hollywood, he's ready for his close up.
