Events concerning Russia are in the news almost daily…..and not complimentary for the most part.
While I do not consider myself geopolitically savvy, I did have the opportunity to visit Mother Russia twice in 2017. One time for pleasure and the other as an invited speaker at a large conference. During my visits, I learned a bit about the state of eye care in Russia.
Many OD’s who graduated in the 70’s and 80’s will recall the famous ophthalmologist Sergey Fyodorov who popularized radial keratotomy. He influenced a generation of ophthalmologists around the world and created a large cohort of patients requiring specialty contact lenses today. Thank you, Dr. Fyordorov!
