Besides other things, the conference introduced some new methods for cataract surgeries as well as new devices for enhancing the comfort of patients and increasing the safety of surgical procedures. Pavel Stodůlka introduced the new Capsulaser through a video presentation for which he received the award in the field of Innovations. “I truly appreciate the ESCRS award. The fact the world-leading specialists and eye surgeons consider my video and procedure to be innovative is a highly pleasing recognition of my long-term work. You may only receive such an award once in a lifetime. The borders of ophthalmology and surgery technologies are being continuously pushed. Eye surgery even becomes one of the fastest evolving domains in the world. And the Czech Republic belongs to superpowers of eye surgery. We are the first ones worldwide to have been using the new laser,” dr. Stodůlka said about the award.

At the conference in Copenhagen, Dr. Stodůlka also received a prize of the Physiol company for having implanted the largest volume of trifocal lenses in the world.
