Professor Reinstein is the founder of London Vision Clinic. He is one of the few full-time Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeons in the UK to dedicate his entire professional life to laser eye surgery. The February 2003 issue of Health Which? Magazine states, “Dan Reinstein is one of very few ophthalmologists working in the UK who is a fellowshiptrained specialist refractive surgeon.”


Professor Reinstein completed his undergraduate education at Cambridge (1981 to 1984) and went on to earn his medical degree from Cambridge University - an M.B. B.Chir (1989).

He holds professorships and consultant posts in New York (Weill Medical College of Cornell University), London (St. Thomas Hospital – Kings College), and Paris (Centre Hospitalier National d’Ophtalmologie des Quinze-Vingts, Université de Paris VI).
