My educational path started in 1978 in mathematics-physics class of Pärnu Secondary School No. 2, and continued in the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Tartu in 1985.
I passed my internship in ophthalmology in the Eye Clinic of Tallinn Central Hospital where I continued to work as ophthalmologist until 1991. In 1991-1992 I was at research work in the Malmö Eye Clinic of Lund University, Sweden. The main object of my research work was glaucoma. Thereafter I worked for 3 months in Nigeria as an eye surgeon in private clinic in Lagos. I have also passed longer training courses in Russia in so-called Fjodorov’s Clinic and Moorfields and Whipps-Cross clinics in London.
In 1994 I returned to the Eye Clinic of Tallinn Central Hospital where I worked until 2002, in last years as the head of department. I had deeper interest towards corneal transplantation and glaucoma surgery. In 2000 I also started to work in Silmalaser after being invited by Dr. Kai Noor as I had also interest towards refraction surgery. It happened so that I was the first surgeon in Estonia who performed LASIK operation. From 2002 I work only in Silmalaser.
In Silmalaser I am mainly dealing with intraophthalmic operations – cataract and glaucoma surgery, insertion of additional lenses and multifocal lenses.
I am fascinated by different musical styles, paintings, cinematography, and fiction. In recent times I have more and more being interested in history. My favourite sport is surfing.
