What effect does corneal cross-linking have after 10 years? This August, ELZA doctor and researcher, Emilio Torres-Netto MD was interviewed by TouchOphthalmology on a recent congress presentation he gave on 10-year cross-linking follow-up data collated from two treatment centers in Zurich, and was asked about what the research group found.
On August 6th, 2020, Prof. Farhad Hafezi was honored to be invited by His Royal Highness, Prince Abdulaziz Bin Ahmed, of the Saudi Royal Family, to present the Shield Lecture at the Saudi Ophthalmology 2020 virtual meeting.
ELZA’s Medical Director, Prof. Farhad Hafezi was an invited international guest speaker at the recent 13th Congrès D’Ophthalmologique Practique (AOPA) at the Hotel Sheraton Alger in Algiers. The congress covered all of ophthalmology, but had a large cornea and refractive sessions, where Prof. Hafezi gave presentations on ELZA’s current research work. His podium presentations reviewed ELZA’s research into refractive surgery, corneal cross-linking and PACK-CXL for the treatment of corneal infection. He also celebrated his birthday while attending the congress!
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).
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
