INNOVATION IN EYE CARE

Allon Barsam is a surgical innovator and is therefore heavily involved in the development of new techniques and equipment. Many of these technologies are patented or have patents pending. His innovation in eye care allows him to advance his field but also ensures that he continually evolves his surgical techniques to provide his patients with access to the most technologically advanced treatment options available – something many people expect in London laser eye surgery clinics. His innovation in eye care highlights include:

• A capsular segment to facilitate safe lens removal in complex cataract surgery.

• An intraocular telescope to complement cataract surgery in patients who also have age related macular degeneration.

• Carrying out the first human treatments of microwave keratoplasty, a new treatment modality for keratoconus.

• Being the first British Ophthalmologist in the world to use laser vision correction technology for cataract surgery with the use of intraoperative aberrometry to refine visual outcomes.

• Being the first British Ophthalmologist and one of the first ten surgeons in the world to carry out laser cataract surgery.
