Dr. Jankov explained the significance of these appearances emphasizing that it is extremely important for any professional to keep himself continually informed in any aspect regarding technology in laser-guided refractive surgery, but that it is also important to keep up a communicative relationship with his patients, to show interest in him because in that way the patient is sure, not only of his decsion to undergo surgery, but is also sure of the surgeon with whom he is trusting his eyesight, which is crucial.
