Just arrived in Iceland for the International Symposium on Ocular Pharmacology and Therapeutics meeting.
Iceland is a long, long way from home.
My trip coincided with the summer solstice. This marks the day when the sun appears highest in the sky. During my 3 day stay in Reykjavik, the skies never turned dark to night.
Iceland is located at the juncture of the North Atlantic and Artic oceans. Iceland has many active volcanos and geysers. As seen here, lava is seen everywhere.
The famous Blue Lagoon is a geothermal spa located in a lava field.
The Blue Lagoon warm waters are rich in minerals like silica and sulphur, which are reputed to help some people suffering from skin diseases such as psoriasis.
The Blue Lagoon is recognized as one of the wonders of the world.
My hotel room was very cozy. Thankfully, there was just enough room to place my luggage on the floor.
I was tremendously honored to be invited to speak at this meeting by current American Glaucoma society president Kuldev Singh, MD and FDA Director of Ophthalmic, Neurological and Ear, Nose and Throat Devices Malvina Eydelman, MD.
I was asked to review the recent advances in micro-invasive glaucoma surgery with this international audience.
After my lecture, I prepared for my long trek home. What a memorable trip!
