Mr Lascaratos completed the South Thames surgical training programme in ophthalmology in London, including subspecialty glaucoma fellowship training at Moorfields Eye Hospital, and has more than twelve years’ experience in Ophthalmology.
He specialises in the medical, laser and surgical management of all types of adult glaucoma, including trabeculectomy and aqueous shunt devices, cutting edge minimally invasive glaucoma surgery, glaucoma revision surgery and complex cataract surgery, especially in patients with glaucoma. His cataract complication rate is less than 0.5 per cent, which is way below the national average, despite the complexity of the operations he performs.

Mr Lascaratos has a passion for translational clinical research and is currently the Principal Investigator for a large prospective study between Moorfields and King’s College investigating the role of mitochondrial function as a novel biomarker for glaucoma. Based on his innovative PhD work in Glaucoma at University College London and his MSc work at Oxford University he has unique expertise in cellular bioenergetics in glaucoma and its relevance to the development of new glaucoma treatments.
