Dr C. Tabatabay and A. Moossajee are back to the Moka Eye Hospital and have met with the local team again. They have brought from Switzerland products and material needed during surgery. Dr Tabatabay examines patients in need of surgery and mainly performs vitrectomies to treat macula holes and corneal grafts surgeries. While operating, Dr Tabatabay explains every step of the surgery he is performing. Local surgeons can watch the surgery through the dual microscope used by Dr Tabatabay or on a screen as a camera is fixed on the bottom of the microscope. On Thursday evening, T.E.S. team was kindly invited by the Minister of Health and Quality of Life, Dr Rajesh Jeetah, for a dinner given in the honour of Mr B. Gruson, general director of the H.U.G. (Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève).
