The Latvian American Eye Center (The Center) celebrates its 20th Anniversary on November 26. The Center was founded by the American Professor John Joseph McDermott in 1993 and since then it has developed into a well-equipped and established world-class clinic. It was the first and still is a unique model of a private eye clinic in the Baltic States based on principles of patient care and state-of-the-art technology famous in the USA to provide specialist eye treatment for adults and children.
In the diagnostic and treatment process Hi-Tech, advanced, tested and certified equipment matching the EU and USA quality standards are used by professionally trained and skilled personnel. The Center carries out various projects both for the ophthalmic doctors and general practitioners, as well as for persons unrelated to medicine and organizes international conferences in ophthalmology already since 2002 on regularly basis.
