During my thesis, I was working at a Galucoma department in a multidisciplinary hospital where i acquired vast knowledge in surgical treatment of anterior chamber pathologies along with treatment of chronic eye conditions such Glaucoma and pathologies of the retina. After acquiring my Ph.D title in 2005, I enhanced my knowledge in ophthalmology by addressing other eye pathologies such as refractive disorders, dry eye, retinal disorders. I worked as an ophthalmologist for 10 years in different hospitals where along with my primary responsibilities as an ophthalmologist and a surgeon, I continued to conduct clinical researches aiming towards improving treatment of different eye disorders
