Conversations in the Fundación with Antonio San José
Heir to a saga of ophthalmologists whose core value is honesty towards the patient, Professor Luis Fernández-Vega discusses his career and describes the technological and scientific advances that have taken place in his profession. He also presents the family’s clinic in Oviedo, whose expansions and growth are the result of a long journey. In relation to the Instituto Oftalmológico Fernández-Vega, of which he is medical director, he describes the work of the adjoining foundations, dedicated to research, and social and humanitarian assistance. His proposals for improving society focus on exploring tolerance, extending the expansion of medicine to developing countries and fomenting research and innovation through patronage.
