The Power List 2018
Deputy Director General at S. Fyodorov Eye Microsurgery Institution, Moscow, Russia
Boris says his career highlights include developing his eponymous Malyugin Ring pupil expansion device, which has gained wide-spread popularity internationally and allowed him to help surgeons on more than 1 million cataract procedures worldwide. Another highlight was delivering the Binkhorst medal lectures at the ASCRS and ESCRS meetings in 2017.
What has inspired you?
“For me, the lifetime achievements of Svyatoslav Fyodorov are the big professional inspiration. His professionalism, innovative way of thinking, team building and educational activities are the role model for many ophthalmologists of my generation here in Russia. Also, my family and my kids are the backbone of my professional success.”
What’s the future of refractive and corneal surgery?
“In lens-based procedures, I believe the future lies in the ability to modify the IOL power after implantation, as well as the development of the new types of accommodative IOLs. Surgery-wise, the future is lying in the field of increased precision of the surgical procedures given to us by the robotic systems and lasers. As for the corneal refractive procedures, I consider refractive index shaping with intra-stromal laser application very promising.”
