Sharing of Awards of ICO International Fellowship

Zhang Lei – Eye Hospital of China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences


I have finished my ICO Fellowship in Cataract at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI) in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, from September 4, 2012 to November 30, 2012.
During the stay in MEEI, I was under the supervision of Dr. Roberto Pineda, II, M.D., Director of Keratorefractive Surgery Service. I spent half of the time in the operation room with Dr. Pineda observing complex cornea and cataract surgery and in the laser room observing corneal laser refractive surgery, and every Thursday with Dr. Sherleen Chen, M.D., Director of Comprehensive Ophthalmology and Cataract Consultation Service, observing cataract surgery. I spent another half of the time in the outpatient clinic with Dr. Pineda, observing management of refractive, cornea, cataract and postoperative patients. I also attended many related meets, journal clubs and conferences. I have more understanding of cataract surgery, refractive surgery and cornea disease.
I want to express my sincere appreciation to my generous sponsor, The Chinese Lifeline Express Foundation. And I also feel extremely honoured for being awarded the International Council of Ophthalmology Fellowship by ICO Fellowship Board. Thank you for giving me the precious chance to study at MEEI.
