AECOS (the American-European Congress of Ophthalmic Surgery) has been holding conferences for almost ten years. The first ones took place in the USA, however, since 2012 there is always a conference held in Europe and two conferences in the USA. AECOS associates the top leaders in ophthalmology, industry representatives, as well as investors, and contributes to the development of ophthalmolgy.

“Pavel is an excellent surgeon, innovator, and he regularly contributes to the AECOS congress program, and when he held the AECOS congress in Prague, he also invited the President of the Czech Republic to share his personal experience with cataract surgery with us,” said the current president for AECOS Professor Burkhard Dick Europe.

“For the first time, we will have a president from a post-communist part of Europe that has been separated from the rest of Europe and the US by the fall of the Iron Curtain exactly 30 years ago. Nevertheless, this part of Europe has historically contributed significantly to the development of medicine,” says Professor Dick, the current European president, who reviewed the level of medicine in our country.
