"I became  a doctor because I wanted to give the best for peoples' eyesight. In the last years of medical school I became fascinated with the tiny organ they call the eye. It never ceases to amaze me how incredibly complex this organ that permits us to contact with the world around us is. It is one of the reasons I decided to specialise in complicated vitreoretinal surgery and spent years researching eye imaging and eye diseases."
