Hello and welcome
I’m Boris Malyugin
I’ve worked as an ophthalmic surgeon for over 30 years, since 1988. For me, being an ophthalmologist is not just a profession, but a calling, the work of my life. When a patient entrusts a doctor with his very ability to see, the patient is within his rights to know that doctor well. That’s why I’m happy to share my story.
Currently, I conduct clinical and basic research at the S. Fyodorov Eye Microsurgery Federal State Institution, where I’m the Deputy Director General responsible for Research & Development and Education programs.
Dr. Boris Malyugin
Dr. Malyugin has innovated several surgical techniques now in active use by ophthalmic surgeons across the world. He has authored many papers and several books and atlases on ophthalmic surgery. Dr Malyugin is an actively practicing ophthalmologist based in Moscow performing over 400 surgeries each year.

I want to emphasize, though, that apart from my research interests, I’m an actively practicing ophthalmologist. Surgery is my passion, not just my profession.
surgical procedures over the last 5 years
I teach at the European School for Advanced Studies in Ophthalmology (Switzerland) and serve as Visiting Professor at the Ben Gurion University (Israel).
For the past two decades, I’ve performed at various leading clinics in Europe, the United States, the Middle East, and Asia. I’ve lectured at the University of Utah (John A. Moran Eye Centre), Stanford University, the Oxford Eye Hospital, the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, and Barraquer Institute (Barcelona).

Medicine has seen dramatic advances over the last decades, the fruit of dedicated scientific teams as well as individual researchers.
What hasn’t changed is that the profession of medicine is grounded in the generous sharing of experience and knowledge among colleagues. For this reason, I maintain active membership in more than 10 of the largest international and supranational professional scientific organizations.
These include the Academia Ophthalmologica Internationalis, the International Intraocular Implant Club, the International Council of Ophthalmology, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the European and American Societies of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons, the All India Ophthalmology Society, and others. From 2016 to the present, I’ve had the honour of serving as President of the Russian Ophthalmology Society.
Clinical ophthalmology is progressing swiftly, achieving an ever-larger impact on quality of life for millions of patients every year. Continuously learning, moving forward, and applying specialized knowledge are my chief tasks, both in scientific research and in clinical practice.
With best wishes,
