Research Interest
• Corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) with riboflavin and UV-A. New approaches (e.g. high intensity CXL) and modified techniques (e.g. combined transepithelial phototherapeutic keratectomy followed by CXL - “Cretan protocol”, combined photorefractive keratectomy followed by CXL etc.). • New techniques in managing corneal graft for partial corneal transplantation procedures. Development of new techniques for corneal endothelial transplantation (DSEK, DMEK). • Femtosecond laser application in corneal, refractive and cataract surgery (e.g. femtosecond laser-assisted intracorneal biopolymer insertion for the symptomatic treatment of bullous keratopathy). • Refractive surgery - outcomes and new approaches. • Evaluation of corneal ectatic disorders and treatment options. • Intracorneal ring segments in keratoconus and post-LASIK ectasia.
