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
