Two of the most acclaimed experts in the field of laser-eye surgery will next week team up for a free London event – Life Without Reading Glasses – at The Royal Society of Medicine.
The pair are Dr Jørn Jørgensen, the CEO of EuroEyes and The London Vision Clinic’s Professor Dan Reinstein, who together have operated on more than 100,000 presbyopia patients worldwide.
Also known in the UK as ‘age related long-sight’ presbyopia is a condition estimated to afflict 27 million people in the UK (1.8 billion globally) that results in a progressively worsening ability to focus clearly on close objects.
His EuroEyes clinic group has outlets across China, Germany, Denmark and the UK, and has recently floated on the Hong Kong stock exchange where it’s valued at $1.73 billion HKD (USD 220 million).
Following the opening of the state-of-the-art LEC Laser Eye Clinic London on Brompton Road, the latest EuroEyes outlet, Dr Jørgensen is set to give a very special free presentation on the treatment of presbyopia.
The event, titled Life Without Reading Glasses, will focus on the answers to treating the common condition and takes place in-clinic at the Royal Society of Medicine on Wednesday 17th of January at 6.30pm.
EuroEyes is one of the largest surgical groups in Germany and recently acquired London Vision Clinic for £30m.
Dr Jørgensen said, “Presbyopia is a common, age-related condition that affects the flexibility of the natural lens in the eye.
“Laser and lens surgery can help restore the natural function of the eye, there is no cure for presbyopia.
“We have a strong team of experts here at LEC London, with over three decades of experience in the field of refractive surgery, and can help treat the effects of presbyopia.”
In remarkable scenes last week the CEO, Dr Jørgensen, performed a presbyopic operation on his CFO, Dr. Markus Braun.
The surgery highlighted the high level of trust and expertise within the company, many Euroeyes staff and family members have become Euroeyes patients.
