Dr. Marta Pazos receives the Prize from the Spanish Glaucoma Society
Marta Pazos, MD, PhD, of the Institut de la Màcula, has been bestowed with the Prize from the Spanish Glaucoma Society for having produced one of the best scientific publications about this disease in Spain. A specialist in the diagnosis and monitoring of glaucoma and its medical, laser and surgical treatments, Dr. Pazos has authored a variety of publications in international journals over the past few years.
Dr. Pazos said the award "helps to publicise among the medical community the latest developments in a disease that currently affects an environment of 1,000,000 people in Spain and is expected to increase in the coming years".
Dr. Pazos has also participated in the 8th Congress of the Spanish Glaucoma Society, held in Bilbao, where she took part in a round table and stressed that “it is increasingly important to look beyond the optic nerve in glaucoma diagnosis and monitoring”.
