The “Jasne Blonia” Eye Clinic was founded in July 2001 by Zofia Nawrocka (MD, PhD), Professor Jerzy Nawrocki (MD, PhD), Małgorzata Dzięgielewska (PhD), Krzysztof Dzięgielewski (MD, PhD) and Zbigniew Pikulski (MD, PhD). They are joined by: Zofia Michalewska (MD, PhD), Janusz Michalewski (MD, PhD), and Sławomir Cisiecki (MD, PhD). The idea was to establish a private Polish clinic modelled on similar institutions already functioning in Germany, France, and the USA. The main aim was to create the newest and most state-of-the-art vitreoretinal surgical centre enabling us to offer a full range of eye disease treatments, providing the finest medical and surgical eye care available.
