This year, Dr. Fanka Gilevska is a finalist at the International Medis Awards for Medical Research.
The Medis International Medical Research Competition is an international competition for outstanding research achievements in nine Central and Southeastern European countries and covers nine medical fields.
Also known as the Oscars for Scientists, these awards are a tribute to outstanding physicians and pharmacists who, in addition to their regular work, conduct research without which there is no innovation in medicine and pharmacy, nor effective disease management.
Dr. Fanka Gilevska is one of the two finalists in the field of ophthalmology in which she participates with the scientific research conducted in Sistina Ophthalmology on the topic: “Can changes in visual acuity and astigmatism be predicted after cross-linking treatment of keratoconus?” (Are changes in visual acuity and astigmatism after corneal cross-linking (CXL) in keratoconus predictable?) which was published in the Graefes Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology (Graefes Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology).
Dr. Fanka Gilevska is a specialist ophthalmologist whose field of special interest is the diagnosis and treatment of diseases in people with diabetes, refractive surgery, diagnosis and treatment of keratoconus.
