Allon Barsam, MA, MD, FRCOphth

As an internationally recognised expert in laser vision correction, Allon Barsam (MA, MD, FRCOphth) has featured and written several book chapters, published over 30 scientific papers and is the co-author of a well-known Ophthalmology textbook. Additionally, Mr Barsam is a member of the editorial board of peer-reviewed journals. His research focuses on all three of his specialist domains; Cornea, Cataract and Laser Eye Surgery.

Working with a number of representatives from the industry, Mr Barsam helps to both refine and design surgical and diagnostic technology, in order to reach the most effective and safest treatments in laser eye surgery. In fact, he is one of only a few Consultant Surgeons in the United Kingdom who has dual fellowship training in both Cornea and Cataract as well as Laser Vision Correction, allowing him to tailor treatments for each patient.

An industry leader in his field in both the UK and internationally, Allon Barsam was the first British Ophthalmologist in the world to carry out Laser Cataract Surgery. For this reason, Barsam is regularly requested to speak in seminars and lectures all over the world in order to teach and update likeminded surgeons with the latest techniques.

Operating in London, Hertfordshire and Harpenden, Allon Barsam has carried out hundreds of corneal transplants, laser eye surgeries, refractive and cataract procedures. In fact, Allon underwent laser eye surgery and therefore completely understands the procedure from a patient perspective.
