The Chief doctor of our clinic, Mr. Radan Zugar, has already performed 10,000 cataract surgeries. We congratulate and wish him other successful surgeries and satisfied patients.
Mr. Zugar started to work at the Eye Centre Prague in 2011 as a specialist doctor and he was appointed the Chief doctor the same year. He mainly focuses on cataract surgeries – in total, he carried out the mentioned 10,000 successful surgeries and 8,000 of them were performed at the Eye Centre Prague. Besides surgical practice, he also provides outpatient treatment in which his area of expertise is mainly retina treatment; he also administers anti-VEGF agents and provides consultancy services for glaucoma treatment.
Mr. Zugar performed his first cataract surgery in 1999. In that time the surgeons used a different surgery technique called an extracapsular cataract extraction. During this procedure, the eye was opened using an incision of more than 10 mm, the lens was removed in whole without the covering and approximately 7 stitches had to be used then. Since then, surgery techniques and equipment have changed. At the Eye Centre Prague, we use the most modern technologies that bring more comfort to the surgeon and more safety to the patient.
Every day, our visitor’s book has a new thank you note to Mr. Zugar from satisfied patients who are thankful not only for their new vision but also for his human approach.
