Dear Dr. Hashemi and colleagues,

Thank you for your most generous and kind hospitality during my brief visit to Tehran.

In particular I want to thank you for your giving me the opportunity to visit your state of art " Noor Eye Center". Our tour was most impressive and you should be congratulated on creating a magnificent ophthalmic resource for the people of Iran.

I wish you great success and look forward to continuing our association and friendship in the future.

With my very best wishes,

Richard H. Abbott

Past President of the AAO
