7th Balkan Ophthalmic Wetlab Course – Letter of Appreciation

Dear Friends,

We would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt THANK YOU to each of you who have attended the 7th Balkan Ophthalmic Wetlab Course in Sofia, Bulgaria.

We appreciate you for taking the time and effort to be here. We also thank you for your participation and the sharing your ideas and expertise. We certainly hope that the wetlab course has been all that you expected it to be and that you have taken the opportunity to make new friends and renew old acquaintances and to have discussion and exchange of many experiences, suggestions and opinion with the faculty, industry and delegates from all over the world.

The 7th Balkan Ophthalmic Wetlab Course was an overwhelming success, attracting 130 delegates, speakers and sponsors from 22 countries and provided great educational, intellectual and social interaction. Your presence helped to make this event so great and your enthusiasm and positive spirit helped make our time together both productive and fun.

We have been very fortuned to have such a large group of well-known experts in the ophthalmology as a part of our faculty team. This group includes:
John Bolger, Norbert Körber, Petra Schollmayer, Dusan Pusnik, Nicola Vandemeulebroecke, Zlatko Slezak, Florian Balta, Jan Köhler, Samer Hamada, Mohamed Shafik Mohamed Elalfy, Andreas Bartels and Yavor Angelov who collectively provided to all participants the opportunity to learn new surgical techniques, to get familiar with new products offered by the industry, in a friendly environment for learning. We are convinced that by the end of the course you felt the difference in your surgical skills and have higher confidence as an ophthalmic surgeon.

Special thanks and our sincere appreciation to Karlheinz Hannig, general manager of MTS – The Wetlab Company, and to his great team who worked hard to provide the best possible hands-on educational training and skillfully guided each of the participants. During the four days wetlab and free practice sessions were used more than 3,000 porcine eyes.  We believe each of you will agree that we have achieved many results and together we made this event a great success. We would also like to thank the ophthalmic industry for their support and confidence.

We appreciate your positive evaluations on the quality of the presentations, speakers and overall organisation of the event. We will certainly consider all your ideas and proposal for improvements.

We would like to convey our deepest appreciation for your contribution and wish you good health and happiness in the years ahead.

Once again a big THANK YOU and we are looking forward to seeing you and/or your friends and colleagues at the 8th Balkan Ophthalmic Wetlab Course, to be held May 30th – June 2nd, 2018 in Hilton Hotel, Sofia Bulgaria.
