Ex Prime Minister Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri: During my recent tour I had the pleasure of visiting the Sitapur Eye Hospital on March 6, 1949.
The number of patients treated in the hospital is exceedingly large. It is doing great Humanitarian service not only to Sitapur but to neighbouring districts as well. Dr Mehray’s spirit is really commendable

KK Birla (founder of Birla Industries) Says:Dr Mehray served the people with great devotion and dedication . Whatever reputation the Eye Hospital enjoys today is all owing to the selfless services rendered by Dr. Mehray.
He was very humane and service to the needy was his mission in life. Side by side, Dr. Mehray was a great organizer and it was a result of his untiring efforts that he was able to build up the Eye Hospital, which is one of the leading hospitals of its kind not only in India but in the world.
