General Info

About me

What I enjoy most about ophthalmology is the unique combination between its clinical and surgical aspects. Also, I believe I have the necessary hand dexterity required in complex ophthalmological surgeries. I specifically enjoy operating on cataracts because of my expertise, very low complication rates and excellent results.
