He was marked for his contribution to ophthalmology, long-term and fruitful activity directed on development of scientific and clinical cooperation between the East and the West. The diploma and the money award from Universität Tübingen (Germany) were handed him over by the President of Congress EURETINA-2013 Professor Gisbert Richard.

We will note that the EURETINA’s scientific program included five reports from Russia, three of which were presented by scientists from Bashkiria.
