Jibran at his new restaurant in BDA Complex, Banashankari 2nd Stage. Initially, he seemed friendly, creative and enterprising due to his unique idea of a vegetarian Lebanese restaurant – Foodizo Cafe – that has over 40 types of mocktails. There was something more special with his talents and skills.
Following the advice of his uncle who is a famous eye surgeon, Jibran trained at the International Prosthetic Center in Hyderabad. He now makes medically approved eye prosthesis that he handcrafts with acrylic at his clinic in HSR Layout. There are less than a hundred people in India and just three in Bangalore including Jibran who make these optic prostheses.
He has helped over 5,000 people in Bangalore to look normal again after losing an eye due to accidents or medical problems. With the help of these acrylic eyes, optically challenged people are able to socialize again with confidence. Jibran was formerly working at Narayana Netralaya and he now consults at Manipal Hospital at Salem, Manipal University and many hospitals in Bangalore. Most of the prosthetic implant surgeries are performed at Jibran Prosthetic Eye Center which is also known as De Cure Center.
Jibran helps many people from the background and is a gem to our city. He is also a good cook and often experiments on recipes to add to his cafe. He is also a Karnataka state level sportsman who plays cricket professionally as an all-rounder.
