Goran Helgason: Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon in London
Dr Goran Helgason is a consultant eye surgeon at Advanced Vision Care (AVC) at 77 Harley Street, London. A pioneer in the field of non-laser corrective implantable eye treatment, he offers the latest treatment solutions for eye problems such as presbyopia, cataracts and refractive errors that are not suitable for laser eye surgery.
Training and experience
Dr Helgason has over 25 years’ experience in laser eye surgery and is recognised worldwide as an expert and international trainer in Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) surgery and technology. He was one of the first eye surgeons in the world to perform STAAR surgical ICL treatment and acts as medical advisor to STAAR Surgical and Alcon Laboratories.
Having undergone ICL treatment himself in both eyes in 2004, he is a strong advocate of the procedure.
Highly skilled and with a reassuring manner, Dr Helgason is also a specialist in Clear Lens Exchange, cataract surgery and laser eye surgery. He is an advisor to several scientific committees in Sweden and Europe and a member of many international ophthalmic professional organisations.
