Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at NYU School of Medicine, Dr Anastasios Kanellopoulos leads a team of scientists who perform corrective eye surgery for common vision problems, such as mild myopia and astigmatism without the use of laser.
The laser-less method is less painful and secures faster recovery time. It is a vision correction procedure which uses collagen cross-linking, in which, vitamin B2 is applied to the cornea followed by exposure to UV light, resulting in a measureable stiffening of corneal tissue. This pioneering method of eye surgery was first applied within the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and is now carried out globally.
Dr. Anastasios Kanellopoulos is an ophthalmologist in New York, NY. He received his medical degree from Southern Illinois University School of Medicine and has been in practice for 25 years.
