Mr Barsam has treated hundreds of Optometrists, Doctors and members of their families. In the last year alone, 7 surgeons including 3 other eye surgeons chose Allon Barsam for their vision correction surgery.
Allon Barsam is a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon Specialist in Cornea, Cataract and Laser Eye Surgery. He practises in centres of excellence in London and Hertfordshire, with clinics in Harley Street, The Wellington Platinum, The Spire Harpenden and The Spire Bushey. His private eye surgery in London is almost exclusively dedicated to laser eye surgery and lens based vision correction surgery, including cataract surgery with customised lenses.
He has a world recognised reputation for combining state of the art technology with superb technical microsurgical skills. As a NHS consultant, he has set up and now runs a tertiary centre of excellence in the treatment of complex front of the eye disorders, where over half of his patients are sent to him from other eye surgeons for his unique surgical expertise.
Laser Eye Surgery in London and Hertfordshire
Mr Barsam is one of only a handful of Consultant Surgeons in the UK who is dual fellowship trained in Cornea, Cataract and Laser Vision Correction. This unique training allows him to tailor specific treatment options to the individual needs of his patients and has inspired him to develop the Vision Care For All Ages system for this purpose, providing a range of treatments for eye conditions, such as laser eye surgery, to London and Hertfordshire.
Mr Barsam is an internationally recognised expert and has published scientific papers, book chapters and textbooks on Cornea, Cataract and Vision Correction Surgery. Allon Barsam is an invited reviewer for the major international journals in his field and is a member of the editorial board for Cataract and Refractive Surgery Today Europe and the World Journal of Ophthalmology.
Allon Barsam has been selected by industry and his peers as an innovator and key opinion leader in the field of vision correction and laser eye surgery in London and further afield. He was the first British Ophthalmologist in the world to carry out Laser Cataract Surgery and he is regularly invited to speak and lecture internationally in order to teach other surgeons the latest techniques. He works with various industry representatives to help design and refine surgical and diagnostic technology that allow for the safest and most effective treatment options for eye conditions available anywhere in the world.
Mr Barsam has carried out thousands of laser eye surgeries, refractive and cataract procedures and hundreds of corneal transplant procedures. Known to some of his ‘older’ friends as ‘Lonnie’, Allon himself underwent laser eye surgery several years ago and therefore has a complete understanding of the patient’s perspective.
