Congratulations to Eva Olofsson, PhD, med dr and EuLDP Alumni from the class of 2015- 2017 who is now President of the Swedish Ophthalmological Society.
I attended the EuLDP in 2015-2017. Since then I have kept working as a vitreoretinal surgeon with ambition to fulfil my EuLDP project to establish a national register for retinal detachment surgery in Sweden. I am also part of a national committee in charge of coordinating the Swedish guidelines in ophthalmology. This autumn I was elected president of the Swedish Ophthalmology Society which is a huge honour. As president I will dedicate myself to promote ophthalmology in Sweden and I hope for a good collaboration all around the world. I sincerely hope that we soon again will be able to meet each other at congresses and courses, but until then we can together make ophthalmology flourish in other ways.
