ELZA at AAO 2019

The annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology was held in San Francisco between 12–15 October 2019 and ELZA’s surgeons and researchers made some significant contributions to the meeting.

The headline from AAO 2019 was Prof. Farhad Hafezi being given the honour of presenting the prestigious Whitney G Sampson lecture, titled “Expanding CXL From Keratoconus to Infectious Keratitis,” where Prof. Hafezi chronicled the creation of corneal cross-linking, and the discovery of a second (and potentially far more impactful) indication: corneal infection treatment. After the lecture, Prof. Hafezi was presented with the Whitney G Sampson Lecture award by the President of CLAO (The Contact Lens Association of Ophthalmologists).

My left eye had to be operated on because of a cataract. As I had an Artiflex lens implanted a few years ago, it had to... be removed first before a modern lens could be implanted to correct the cataract. Prof. Hafezi treated me in an very competent and friendly manner. I am very happy with the result.read more

At the moment, 3 months have passed since the moment I made laser vision correction in this clinic. and I can say that... I am happy that I chose this particular clinic and Prof. F. Hafezi. The entire staff of the clinic is very friendly, treats patients with sympathy and patience if they are nervous before surgery (my big gratitude to Aida Alili for all support and patience). The doctor Hafezi and other doctors of the clinic are very professional and ready to explain to you as many times as you need. I can only recommend!read more
