The Power List 2016

Director, Laservision Eye Institute, Athens, and Clinical Professor, Department of Ophthalmology, NYU School of Medicine, New York

A pioneer of corneal and refractive surgery, and a CXL expert, Kanellopoulos developed the Athens protocol for keratoconus and ectasia, which combines laser normalization of the irregular cornea with cross-linking. He also introduced higher fluency cross-linking and prophylactic cross-linking with LASIK, a precursor to LASIK Xtra, and demonstrated how CXL helps in infectious keratitis, corneal melts and pseudophakic keratopathy. He’s currently also at the forefront of ocular surface disease treatment modalities, and is one of the most highly-regarded ophthalmic surgeons in the world.
