The ideological inspiration behind and the founder of private centres of eye surgery is Zbigniew Zagorsky, one of the most famous Polish ophthalmologists, professor, author of numerous monographs and scientific works, a member of the International Ophthalmology Council, prestigious European and International Ophthalmology Academies as well as American Ophthalmology Academy. He performed thousands of successful ophthalmological surgeries, including charitable and demonstration ones; has brought up generations of students and still passes his experience to young colleagues.
