About me

Mr Dimitri Kazakos MD, MRCOphth
Ophthalmic Surgeon

I am a fully-trained ophthalmologist that has undergone additional specialist training in both cornea and refractive surgery. My specialist interest is in cataract and refractive surgery, cornea and external eye diseases. I am at the forefront of leading edge refractive treatments and have performed more than 30,000 procedures including complex cataract surgery, Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE), Phakic Intraocular Lens (pIOL) implantation, astigmatic incisional procedures, LASIK and LASEK.

Through this comprehensive range of refractive procedures and with the use of latest modern technology, I am able to offer to my patients the most suitable treatment for their eyes. I am registered with the General Medical Council in the UK and an active member of various affiliated bodies and societies including the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and the United Kingdom and Ireland Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.

Twice every year, I attend the International Medical Advisory Board (IMAB) conferences and I am annually assessed and upraised by this board. The panel consists of several of the world’s most eminent refractive surgeons including Mr. Steve Schallhorn, former Head of Ophthalmology for the US Navy.

After graduating from Medical School in 1997 I started my career in ophthalmology at the Oxford Eye Hospital. Then, I moved to Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, Essex County Hospital in Colchester, Ipswich General Hospital, Bristol Eye Hospital and Southampton Eye Unit for a Fellowship in Corneal and External Eye Diseases. I then returned to my native Greece to complete my higher surgical training and I received a Refractive Fellowship in the University of Crete with Prof. Pallikaris, the inventor of LASIK.

Additionally, I have attended mini-fellowships in Refractive Surgery with some of the world’s most distinguished ophthalmologists including Prof. Richard Forster (Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Miami, Florida, USA) and Prof. Theo Seiler (Institut für Refraktive und Ophtalmologische Chirurgie, Zurich, Switzerland).
