I am an ophthalmologist from Indonesia. I graduated from Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Indonesia (FMUI), Jakarta on August 2005. The following year in 2006, i started my ophthalmology residency and graduated as an Ophthalmologist on August 2011 from the same institution. Being located in the capital city of Indonesia, Universitas Indonesia has been the leading university in our country, especially for the medical school. QS Asian University Rankings has placed FMUI in top 25 from 400 universities in Asia.

Following my graduation, in 2012, I was given the opportunity to join the staff member of Department of Ophthalmology in FMUI. Teaching has always been my passion since my early adulthood, so i accepted this opportunity and has been working there since then. Trained and have been working in Department of Ophthalmology, Cipto Mangunkusumo Kirana Hospital as the teaching hospital of Universitas Indonesia and national referral center hospital in Indonesia has given me the chance to be involved in countless interesting cases. As part of the WHO vision 2020 the right to sight mission, i have also been actively involved in cataract surgery charity programs.

My special interests in ophthalmology are orbital oncology, orbit, and oculoplastic. I've joined the oncology division since 2012 and just finished my fellowship in this particular sub-specialty on May 2013. During 2008 - 2013, i regularly attended local and international congress in ophthalmology and also courses in oncology. I also have been involved in several researches, one of which won as the 1st runner up in the experimental study competition held by Indonesian Ophthalmologist Association in Annual Meeting in 2012.

Orbital oncology has been a big problem in Indonesia. As a developing country with the 5th largest population in the world, we still see many oncology patients that seek ophthalmology facility in a very late stage, facing us challenges in determining the treatment, whether it is surgical or medical treatment. Orbit and oculoplastic surgeons are still in limited numbers in our country, making it an additional problem because patients need to be referred to get the sub-specialty facilities.

My experiences in ophthalmology are still limited but i am very eager to learn. I believe that medical -especially ophthalmology- study is a continuous journey every doctor should take. Hopefully I can apply the knowledge and skill that i have and will be getting from the fellowship programs to all the patients in the future, and bring a better improvement especially in oncology patients.
