About me

I studied medicine by vocation and because I always liked everything related to human health.
Of all the available specialties, Ophthalmology was the only one I really, therefore, as soon as I received my MD degree, I left the country to specialize in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I chose this country for the international recognition it has in the ophthalmological field, and also because I had exceptional teachers like Carlos Argento, world-class exhibitor and pioneer of guidelines of modern Lasik Surgery.
