I am an ophthalmic surgeon brought up in a family of ophthalmologist. I had a passion for ‘the eye’ and ‘the vision’ from my childhood. This was the subject of my first presentation at school. I accompanied my father to expert ophthalmic surgeries from a young age.
Later, Professor Limon offered me an assistant position at the National Center of Ophthalmology of Quinze-Vingts. She was a model of scientific, surgical and moral rigor and allowed me to specialise in refractive surgery by entrusting me with the responsibility of this department.
In 1990, I participated in the evaluation of the first excimer laser installed in Quinze-Vingts. This is to communicate the depth of my gratitude towards this great lady of ophthalmology.
After departing, I continued to have responsibilities in refractive surgery in the department of Professor Sahel at Quinze-Vingts. In 1999, I helped to create the first structure of French liberal refractive surgery: The Clinic of Vision.
Today, I share my refractive surgery between the hospital and the private sector.
I am proud to have contributed to the development of new laser refractive surgery techniques that can correct vision defects with accurate, effective and safe results when respecting the indications.
