Matus Rehak

The Power List 2017

Matus Rehak

Professor of Ophthalmology, the University of Leipzig, Germany

A retina surgeon and anti-VEGF expert, Rehak’s research interests include retinal vascular diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy and retinal vein occlusion, and ocular oncology. His research work is starting to reveal how the molecular and anatomical changes in these disease states are linked, and he has been involved in the clinical evaluation of anti-VEGF and laser treatment strategies for retinal occlusive disease. He also has an interest in radiation and proton beam therapy (PBT) for intraocular tumors, and his work has helped define predictive risk factors for retinopathy and optic neuropathy after PBT, helping improve treatment choices and the safety profiles when using these treatment modalities.

A nominator said: “Rehak is ambitious in spreading knowledge, works cooperatively and makes patient-orientated decisions. A skilled specialist on difficult disease states of the retina, he has a friendly and 
open character.”
