The Power List 2018
Professor and Chairman of Ophthalmology, University of Alicante, Spain, and Medical Director of Vissum Corporation
A leading authority in refractive surgery (and experienced – he’s performed 45,000 surgeries to date), Jorge is at the forefront of much of the research in this field. He is the medical director of Vissum, Europe’s largest eye institute and research facility, an ESCRS board member and co-founder (with his wife) of an eponymous foundation dedicated to blindness prevention. He created the concept of microincisional cataract surgery, pioneered multifocal, toric, phakic and accommodative IOLs, and many aspects of laser refractive surgery. Understandably, fellows come from around the globe to be trained under his supervision. Jorge has authored or co-authored over 525 peer-reviewed papers (his h-index is 57), and edited or co-edited 360 book chapters and 91 books, and he’s received 103 international and national awards to date.
