“The designs of Bashkir ophthalmologists face high demand all over the world today and we have enough to share with our colleagues” – the director of the Ufa’s research eye diseases Institute under the Academy of sciences RB Mukharram Bikbov says. According to him the fact that the Institute renders its services to the citizens RB absolutely free, at the expense of the Republican budget, arouses special interest among the majority of the conference’s participants. Such practice isn’t applied anywhere else in Russia.
