First Prize in Refractive Surgery

Dr. Emilio Torres from the Ocular Cell Biology Group of the CABMM Research Platform won first prize for Refractive Surgery at the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) virtual meeting 2020.

In a study entitled "Corneal cross-linking for treating infectious keratitis: final results of the prospective randomized controlled multicenter trial" Dr. Torres and his co-authors could show that corneal ulcers can be treated just as effectively with PACK-CXL as with antibiotics.

Our sincere congratulations to Emilio!
