His interests include cataract surgery, corneal transplantation, and refractive surgery. After splitting the early years of his life in Georgia and India, Dr. Vira attended the Georgia Institute of Technology where he graduated with honors with a degree in Computer Science. Staying close to his roots, he earned his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia. Dr. Vira then moved to the Chicago area to complete a competitive internship at Evanston Northwestern Hospital. Subsequently, he completed his residency in Ophthalmology at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago. During his residency, he developed a keen interest with studies in corneal transplantation, presented his data at national meetings, and published articles in peer-reviewed journals.

J. Bradley Randleman and John Kim at the Emory Eye Center. During his fellowship, he also supervised resident clinics and surgeries at Grady Memorial Hospital in downtown Atlanta.

Dr. Vira is very helpful and makes sure you understand the reasoning behind his diagnosis and treatment. Brittany made me feel very welcome and got me through the preliminary checks quickly. Natasha did as well, and clearly is very knowledgeable and conscientious.

He was really thorough and was great about explaining what he discovered through the exam. He took pictures of my eyes and showed them to me and explained what he saw. He also suggested a plan of action for the nextmonth and if that doesn't work, then an additional plan the following month. I have hope, again, after seeing him.
