I spent a one year glaucoma fellowship, supported by the European Glaucoma Society (EGS) from 1st of November 2019 to 31st of October 2020 at Department of Ophthalmology, University Medical Center in Mainz, Germany.
I would like to sincerely thank EGS for such great opportunity that is given to young ophthalmologists to improve their knowledge in glaucoma diagnosis and management.

End of 2017, I completed my EGS Fellowship in Leuven, Belgium, under the supervision of Professor Ingeborg Stalmans.
I consider this educational opportunity offered by the EGS an important asset to my professional career.
I was able to perform over 400 supervised glaucoma consultations, where clinical glaucoma skills were practiced (biomicroscopy, tonometry, gonioscopy, fundoscopy). The fellowship also included training with perimetric/imaging methods, as well as research-oriented devices including several ocular blood flow oriented technologies such as the angiography optical coherence tomography, colour Doppler imaging and retinal oximetry.

With this report I would like to summarize my experience and key learnings from my one year glaucoma fellowship at the University Clinic Mainz in Germany.
First of all, I would like to thank the European Glaucoma Society (EGS), led by President Prof. Anja Tuulonen, for giving me this amazing opportunity to spend a year at one of the top University clinics focused on glaucoma. I would like to thank the director of the clinic, Prof. Pfeiffer, the director of my fellowship program, Prof. Hoffmann, and the whole team. From the beginning I felt as being a part of the team, fully involved in the work and overall impact made.
