Surgery – and post-op day one – are my favorite days at work. To see the value of what you did the day before puts it all together: the patients’ outcome and patients’ satisfaction.

Dr. I. Paul Singh, MD

I love being able to take people from medicine through the surgery to postoperative care. I love the efficiency of it and how fast recovery is … all these things fit my personality.

Y. Ralph Chu, MD

Doing clinical research on new technologies is the salt in the soup. We want things to be better in the future for patients: next week, next year, in some time to come.

Oliver Findl, MD

No matter your specialty, every day offers different challenges. And with the challenges come rewards. You have the opportunity to change your patients’ lives by restoring their vision.

Once I made the choice, I became passionate with ophtalmology – it filled my life.

Marie-José Tassignon, MD, PhD, FEBO

I love ophthalmology because I give some happiness to the patients. Today I checked 20 patients, and some hugged me. You know, in Japanese culture we don’t hug people.

Hiroko Bissen-Miyajima, MD

Think about it. Every day I’m so thankful that I’m an ophtalmologist. Every day. I’m so grateful that I’m a cataract surgeon, doing what I do.

Ronald Yeoh, MD

When I started at a clinic, it was a rule that women did not do surgery. I decided that surgery is what I wanted to do. Rules can be broken.

Everyone has a unique journey. Compelling moments and unforgettable experiences. Remember the first time you saw an eye under the microscope? The first patient you helped? This fascination only grows stronger with time.

The first time you look down a ZEISS surgical microscope, it’s staggering. I mean, the quality of the optics is actually quite staggering. That you can see with such clarity and detail and really even seeing the depth of the sections is fantastic.

Ronald Yeoh, MD

I discovered the added benefit of seeing more so we acquired the most advanced microscope from ZEISS with integrated intraoperative OCT.

Marie-José Tassignon, MD, PhD, FEBO

I love research to see what is possible, what is doable, what is helpful for patients, what can actually achieve better outcomes.

Although every calling is personal, ophthalmologists share a common goal – to make an impact: be it in surgery, research, teaching – or all three. To one patient, for an advanced technique or a new technology, every day you make a difference.

As head of a department, I can do more when I work on a team. What I love the most is discussion with experienced and young surgeons.

Marie-José Tassignon, MD, PhD, FEBO

Broadening your horizons by working with different experts can only be for the better. With different people you will find that the mindsets are different, the way of thinking is different, and this can enhance the way you practice medicine.

Ronald Yeoh, MD

Clinical research really allows you to pinpoint questions, open questions, to develop new technologies, new tools that help companies
assess new technologies, that’s something I find very fascinating.

Oliver Findl, MD
