What inspires you?
“As someone who emigrated to the United States from a post-communist country at the age of 18, I rise every day thinking how lucky I am to be an ophthalmologist and able to help my colleagues and patients by advancing technology and science through innovation. I am inspired by the opportunity to make a positive change in life. Having developed multiple technologies which impact hundreds of thousands of patients every year – one needs no more to be inspired.”
