Dr Nick Koutroumanos trained in Ophthalmology at the world-leading Moorfields Eye Hospital in London. His rigorous seven-year training programme prepared him to provide medical and surgical care for all aspects of the eye and has worked exclusively in the field of ophthalmic plastic surgery since 2014. His functional oculoplastics practice in London looks after thousands of adult and paediatric patients annually, presenting with developmental, ageing or injury related eyelid and eye socket deformities or cancer, watery or dry eyes.
He was attracted to the life of exclusively oculoplastic work by the need for absolute precision, because even the slightest error can have lasting consequences on a child’s development or an adult’s self-esteem. Balancing functionality and aesthetics is another key goal in oculoplastic surgery. Dr Koutroumanos stresses the importance of ensuring the eyes’ safety while maximising function, symmetry and beauty, always staying true to individuals’ facial characteristics.
