In search of a specialist examination for contact lenses, and based on the good experiences of other patients, I decided to go to St. Catherine Specialty Hospital, and I did not regret my choice. I entrusted the care of my eyes to Tamara Knežević, M.D., Ph.D., ophthalmology specialist, who is a very professional, thorough and pleasant physician. During the examination, doctor Knežević explained each step to me and was very friendly and kind, which provides reassurance to frightened patients like me. I didn't have to wait to get an appointment, and in St. Catherine Hospital welcomed me in a very pleasant and friendly atmosphere, from the medicals staff at the reception to the ophthalmology team in the clinic. The first examination for contact lenses went without any problems, doctor Knežević and nurse Ivana were very understanding and ready to help at any time. I would like to give a special praise to the nurse Ivana, who gave me all the attention and showed maximum patience during the practice of putting on and taking off the lenses, which I was scared of at the beginning.
