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.
I can't see myself without Ophthalmology - my love of detail and perfectionism fits perfectly with microsurgery.Oliver Findl, MD
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
The joy that you give back to people when you've done [this type of] surgery is totally priceless.Ronald Yeoh, MD
My dad is also an ophthalmologist and when I was young I saw his enthusiasm, how he couldn't wait to go back the next day. The patient's thank you drove him to learn and do more, and seeing this drove me.Dr. I. Paul Singh, MD
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
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 companiesOliver Findl, MD
