On June 14, 2019 the Inaugural Robert Machemer Lecture of the European Society of Ophthalmology (SOE) was delivered at the biennial congress in Nice, France by VMR’s founding director, Dr. Sebag.
Paying homage to Dr. Machemer’s revolutionary invention of vitrectomy in 1970,
Dr. Sebag‘s lecture was entitled “Vitrectomy for Vision Degrading Myodesopsia”. In this lecture he shared with the world new concepts of how vitreous floaters can negatively impact vision and how a modified version of Dr. Machemer’s innovative operation cures the condition and improves quality-of-life.
