MASTERCLASS X under the light of an important jubilee and a humanitarian touch
On November 3rd, 2018, at the hotel “Metropol Palace” in Belgrade, an international congress in ophthalmology Masterclass X was organized by the clinic “LaserFocus”. This meeting which gathered around 120 participants among lecturers, doctors, partners, guests, representatives of the diplomatic corps and exhibitors from the country and abroad, was held in celebration of the 10th anniversary of “LaserFocus”. A special touch was given to the event by a humanitarian exhibition of art paintings in the lobby.
The main topics of the lecture were: refractive, cataract corneal and retinal surgery. The congress was opened by the host prof. Dr Mirko R. Jankov, while the special guest was the Ambassador of Brazil, her Excellency, Ms. Heyvaert Azevedo, who held a lectutre about public health challenges and solutions in Brazil. The painter Dusan Vukojevic-Mars, an permanently and severely injured war veteran and a patient of “LaserFocus” was the author of the exhibition of paintings. The income from sales went to the humanitarian purposes of his treatment, because he lost both of his legs, his right arm and one eye as a “collateral damage” from a landmine after the war. The seminar also had a musical part that was marked by young fingerstyle guitar performer Bojan Ivanovski -Joby.
