Our Tuesday Beijing Rotary lunch 27 June in Kempinski again required me to jump in as Sergeant-at-Arms. Happy to welcome our Rotaractors from the Rotaract Club of Beijing: the outgoing president Peter D. (Romania) and incoming president Marc T. (USA).

Speaker for our Rotary lunch 27 June was Dr. Joern Joergensen, topic: “A Life without Glasses”.
Dr. Joergensen is the founder, CEO & Medical Director of EuroEyes, has performed over 100,000 surgeries. Dr. Joergensen is recognized as one of the Best Eye Doctor in Germany by <FOCUS>. EuroEyes is the largest clinic group in Germany for Refractive surgery. Myopia has become an epidemic in east Asian countries, especially in China. As the aging of the population grows, more and more people also get presbyopia. EuroEyes started to get many Chinese patients in Germany. There is a big gap in high-end medical services in China. The numbers of myopia and presbyopia patients are growing rapidly. Dr. Joergensen explained the pathological mechanism of myopia and presbyopia. Besides guaranteed high quality of surgery and services, EuroEyes also give back to the community by performing free eye surgeries to the people in need.
