- Refractive surgery
Aris Konstantopoulos is a consultant ophthalmologist at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust.
In his clinical work he specialises in refractive cataract/lens surgery (toric and multifocal lenses), laser vision correction (LASIK, SMILE, PRESBYOND) and treatments of the cornea (corneal transplantation, collagen-cross-linking, PTK, pterygium surgery).
He graduated from the University of Glasgow and completed his ophthalmology training in hospitals of the Oxford and Wessex Deanery. He then completed 2 years of advanced training (fellowship) on ‘Cornea and external eye disease’ at University Hospital Southampton and the University of Southampton. His research focused on how to use optical coherence tomography imaging for diagnosis of conditions of the cornea; this led to the award of a PhD and numerous awards.
Aris subspecialised further in refractive surgery and lamellar corneal transplantation with a fellowship at the Singapore National Eye Centre, one of the most advanced and prestigious institutions in the world. Transferring these skills and knowledge back to the UK, he has now incorporated new ideas and practices into treatment for conditions of the cornea, corneal transplantation and refractive surgery.
