He discussed the ways how the technological growth of the last 40 years helped develop the practice of Ophthalmology to what it is today. He also highlighted the value of compassion towards their work as physicians, saying “we have no science, no medicine. An achievement should not be measured by the recognition that one gets, that may come later or never comes. That achievement should be measured by what it has done for your neighbor. That’s the most important thing.” Dr. Peyman actively participated and led the development of three renowned eye treatments which are, Intraocular Drug Administration, Vitreous Surgery, and LASIK.
