The Power List 2016

Thomas Neuhann

Founder and medical director, ALZ Eye Laser Center, Munich

Along with Howard Gimbel (qv), Neuhann was responsible for the introduction of the capsulorhexis – a sea change in cataract surgery at the time. He was also involved in the development of the trabeculectomy, the integration of diagnostic and safety procedures like iris recognition into LASIK procedures, and also special methods for the correction of complex visual defects. In addition to operating the ALZ Eye Center, Neuhann also leads an eye bank he founded in Munich, and conducts around 300 corneal transplants annually.
