The Power List 2020 – Power List
CEO of PVK Precise Vision GmbH, Precise Vision Augenärzte Erlangen and Lead Surgeon at Augentagesklinik Rheine and Greven, Germany
Your three wishes?
Better support for medical services in third world countries; international synchronization of ophthalmology training; more acceptance for private research and better university cooperation.
Piece of advice for your younger self?
The advice I would give to my younger self is… to continue following his dreams and never to forget that hard work pays off in the end – and that family and friends are the best support, even in difficult situations.
The most unexpected turn of your career?
It was my wife becoming my business partner. Many people say that your private life and business should be separate, but my wife has proven to me that joint forces are always far more successful.
