Prof. Eberhard Spoerl

Germany

Prof. Eberhard Spoerl, PhD

Prof. Spoerl, along with Prof. Seiler, is one of the fathers of corneal cross-linking. His physics background, combined with his close collaboration with clinicians and biomedical researchers not only defined cross-linking’s Dresden Protocol, it helped push the field of corneal cross-linking forward into new applications. 

His work has helped the field to continually improve upon the “state of the art?.

 

Prof. Theo Seiler

Switzerland

Prof. Theo Seiler, MD, PhD

Isang dakilang pigura at pioneer ng refractive laser surgery at corneal cross-linking, si Prof. Seiler ay naninilbihan bilang Chief Medical Officer ng IROC eye clinic na base sa Zurich. 

Noong 2014, ang magazine na The Ophthalmologist ay isinama si Prof. Seiler bilang top of the global ?PowerList?, isang biennial na lisahan ng mga pinaka-maimpluwensiyang tao sa larangan ng ophthalmology. Sa 2016 at 2018, siya ay muling isinama sa PowerList.

Dagdag sa kanyang clinical duties, si Prof. Seiler ay isa ring popular na tagapagsalita na maraming international speaking schedule, gawaing pagtuturo, at nagbibigay ng training sa mga susunod na henerasyon ng corneal at refractive surgeons. 

Prof. Paolo Vinciguerra

Italy

Prof. Paolo Vinciguerra, MD

The Director of Ophthalmology at Department Istituto Clinico Humanitas and Professor of Ophthalmology at Università degli Studi, Milan, Italy, Prof. Vinciguerra is a pioneer of both photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and corneal cross-linking surgery, Prof. Vinciguerra is a highly respected leader in the fields of refractive surgery and CXL.

Ang kanyang research work na nag-imbestiga ng corneal biomechanics at non-invasive methods ng assessment ay lubos na nakapagsulong sa larangang ito, at ang kanyang longitudinal clinical investigations sa parehong conventional at transepithelial corneal cross-linking ang humubog sa mas malawakang pag-iintindi ng efficacy ng parehong approach.

Prof. Cosimo Mazzotta

Italy

Prof. Cosimo Mazzotta, MD, PhD

A trusted surgeon and impactful researcher, Prof. Mazzota is one of the founders of the ?Siena Cross-Linking Center? at the University of Siena in Italy. 

Kilala si Prof. Mazzotta sa pag-challenge ng pinakabagong mga method at application ng corneal cross-linking para masiguradong ligtas at epektibo ang mga ito para sa kanyang mga pasyente, at pina-publish niya ang kanyang mga resulta para ibahagi sa lahat. Ang partikular niyang interes ay nakatuon sa corneal confocal microscopy at sa pag-optimize ng bagong cross-linking protocols.

Prof. Frederik Raiskup

Germany

Prof. Frederik Raiskup, MD, PhD

Si Prof. Raiskup ay isa sa mga clinical pioneer ng corneal cross-linking, na nagsimula bilang isang batang clinical researcher sa Dresden noong nagsisimula pa lamang ang CXL development. 

Ito ang dahilan kung bakit siya ang pinakamaraming clinical experience ng corneal cross-linking kaysa sa ibang mga surgeon, at ang kanyang kaalaman at karanasan ang dahilan kung bakit siya naging popular na podium speaker sa mga major international conference.

 

Prof. J. Bradley Randleman

USA

Prof. J. Bradley Randleman, MD

An eye surgeon at the internationally renowned Cleveland Clinic, Prof. Randleman?s focus is on clinical research and corneal biomechanics. 

Many know him from the “Randleman score” for corneal ectasia. More recently, he is dedicated to bringing a non-invasive, non-contact method of testing corneal strength, Brillouin microscopy, to market as a means of measuring the effect of corneal cross-linking as on corneal biomechanics ? or in other words, the true efficacy of CXL. In 2018, ang magazine The Ophthalmologist isinama si Prof. Randleman sa PowerList, ang listahan ng pinaka-maimpluwensiyang ophthalmologist.

Prof. Simon Pot

Switzerland

Prof. Simon Pot, DVM

Prof. Pot is Head of Ophthalmology at the Tierspital, University of Zurich, and leads a research group in the University’s Center for Applied Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine. 

Siya ang awtor ng napakaraming peer-reviewed publications at itinuturing bilang eksperto sa mga fundamental at clinical application ng PACK-CXL para sa treatment ng nakakahawang keratitis sa veterinary practice.

Prof. Shihao Chen

China

Prof. Shihao Chen, MD

Si Professor Chen ang Director ng Refractive Surgery Center ng Affiliated Eye Hospital ng Wenzhou Medical University, China. Siya ang unang nakapagpaliwanag ng excimer laser ablation rates sa cross-linked corneas, na siyang nagbigay-daan sa mga ophthalmic surgeon na gamitin ang refractive laser surgery para mapagaling ang visual quality ng ilang candidate patients na sumailalim na ng corneal cross-linking.

Isang educator na malalimang nakatutok sa pagtuturo ng corneal cross-linking sa kanyang Chinese colleagues, at tahasang advocate ng technique na ito, si Professor Shen din ang Chinese language editor ng textbook na: Corneal Cross-Linking, First Edition.

Prof. Farhad Hafezi

Switzerland

Prof. Farhad Hafezi, MD, PhD, FARVO

Si Farhad Hafezi, MD PhD FARVO, ay isang propesor, anterior segment surgeon, at ocular cell biologist. Sa 2014, 2016, 2018 at 2020 he was voted onto the biennial PowerList100 of “The Ophthalmologist”, a list of the 100 most influential people in ophthalmology.

Combing patient care, research & development, and teaching, Hafezi is a pioneer and key opinion leader of corneal cross-linking (CXL). Hafezi?s work comprises over 190 peer-reviewed articles, letters, reviews and book chapters. He is cited by his peers more than 7.900 times (impact factor:  625, h index: 45).
