Ophthalmology’s Indiana Jones

Günther Grabner had a stellar career in ophthalmology. He founded Austria’s first Eye Bank in 1977 in Vienna and was a pioneer in corneal refractive surgery from the early 1980s. His work has spanned uveitis, presbyopia treatments with lasers, inlays and intraocular lenses, kerato-prosthesis surgery, glaucoma surgery and large epidemiological studies. If you’ve ever heard of the Salzburg Reading Desk – a system that precisely measures near visual acuity performance, that’s his too. He’s sat on many industry advisory panels, journal editorial advisory boards, and has held high office in many international ophthalmological organizations.

Today, you’re still likely to find him in an academic setting – but not necessarily at the Eye Clinic of the Paracelsus Medical University in Salzburg. In his retirement, you’re more likely to find him in a lecture theater with his fellow Archaeology undergraduate students – or perhaps performing field work at an archaeological dig.
