ELZA’s Podium Power

Dr. Emilio Torres-Netto’s moderated poster presentation “Stromal bed smoothness after excimer laser surface ablation as a key element for the expression of inflammatory genes”, which won the Best Poster Prize at Winter ESCRS, in the Refractive Surgery Section.
The annual meeting of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) was held in Paris between 14–18 September 2019, and ELZA’s surgeons and researchers presented a record 21 presentations during the congress – so what did ELZA at ESCRS manage to achieve? Our team presented at 8 free paper presentations and a further 8 instructional courses, as well as three moderated poster sessions, two e-posters (as well as instructing in 1 wet lab too).
A lot has been said about SMILE, some of which has been about how, in theory, corneas treated with SMILE should be biomechanically stronger than LASIK-treated corneas (more of the stronger anterior stroma is left intact compared with physically cutting a flap there in LASIK and lifting it to perform ablation of the stroma underneath). But what about PRK? This is ablation of the anterior stroma after having just removed the epithelial cells above it, on the surface of the cornea. So the question remains: which is stronger? PRK or SMILE? The short answer is that PRK is stronger.
Dr. Emilio Torres-Netto’s moderated poster presentation “Stromal bed smoothness after excimer laser surface ablation as a key element for the expression of inflammatory genes”, which won the Best Poster Presentation Prize in the Refractive Surgery Section. Over 1000 posters were submitted to ESCRS; Torres-Netto et al.’s was considered to be the best.

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
