Piotr Nogal – about me

Piotr Nogal

I’m a Doctor… a man who decided to devote his life to others… the one that every night goes to sleep having in mind all those patients, whose difficult cases keep him awake at night…

I graduated from the Military Medical Academy in Łódź (Poland), where in the years 1991 to 1997 I had an opportunity to study medicine learning from one of the greatest lecturers of medicine in Poland and surely in the world. I was taught in sweat and tears of logical thinking in reaching the most appropriate conclusions within the limits of described medical knowledge and searching for non-standard solutions at moments when you have to descend form the path of predictable and already discovered medicine to the areas of unawareness and support yourself with conscience, common sense and logic… all the attributes of “ars medica”, because only artists in this profession receive gratitude and smile from patients at the end of a hard day, when once more we win over what has just now been unknown…

I’m a graduate of one of the best higher schools of humanities in Poland, the University School of Physical Education in Wrocław, where in the spirit of kalokagathia (“beautiful and wise”) I was taught to think unrestricted by rigid rules, to be creative and to fight against obstacles standing in the way to improve myself… where, in the spirit of broadening the mind, I was taught about the links between anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry… finally, where during an exam in Sports Medicine I was noticed by a keen Educationalist and Doctor and “prompted” to medical studies in such a delicate yet suggestive way that I could do nothing else, but to leave with my credit book signed and urgently direct my steps on the path of a medic experiencing adversities, which meant sweat and tears unknown to me to such an extent in the fight against myself during many years of doing competitive sport…

Finally, I’m the man who was the first in the world to describe the mechanism of migraine, low pressure glaucoma and formation of closed angle and to explain the mechanisms of selected cases such as myopia, keratoconus and idiopathic epilepsy in children, as well as many other illnesses recognized so far as idiopathic… I’m the author of morphological classification of iris and the “Eye-CHILD” Nogal Syndrome, the author of the treatment method of amblyopia “NOGAL” (New Optimization of  Gamble in Amblyopia Lead) and an invention which is the posterior eye chamber tonometer.
