"Encouraged by Armand's experience and his enthusiasm with prof. Gabrić and the team of Clinic Svjetlost, I finally decided to solve vision problems, here in Croatia. I'm the happiest when I'm on a set. I like to create, I work my whole life, and that makes me happy. In total devotion to my greatest love – acting, I have been restricted by my bad vision that becomes worse as the years passing by. From today there are no more vision problems because I can see everything around myself perfectly"said the 76-year-old actor.
"After the Clinic in Zagreb, in only a few days, was visited by two true movie icons, and taking into consideration their acquaintances and the positive impressions we have left as experts, we hope that there will be arrivals of other famous people from all over the world. Health tourism does not happen by itself, and we hope this is just the beginning and that in upcoming years an increasing number of patients will come from abroad "- added prof.
