Renato Ambrósio

The Power List 2016

Renato Ambrósio

Director of Cornea and Refractive Surgery, Instituto de Olhos Renato Ambrósio, Rio de Janeiro, and Associate Professor, Federal University of São Paulo

A major contributor to the introduction of corneal imaging technology, Ambrósio has extensively studied corneal topography, tomography, and hysteresis in an effort to better understand and predict the corneal response to refractive surgery. If you have a Pentacam, he’s the ‘A’ in BAD – the Belin-Ambrósio Deviation display. Renato also holds multiple academic appointments, and his work has helped establish the true nature of corneal pathologies, from keratoconus to post-LASIK dry eye. He is a strong proponent of pre-surgical anterior segment OCT to drive better outcomes.
