Kaweh Mansouri

The Power List 2017

Kaweh Mansouri

Consultant Ophthalmologist, Glaucoma Centre, Montchoisi Clinic, Lausanne, Switzerland

As well as being a consultant ophthalmologist at Montchoisi Clinic, Lausanne, Switzerland, Mansouri is also an Adjunct Associate Professor at the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Colorado. He pioneered the use of 24-hour IOP-monitoring technology for patients with glaucoma by contributing to the development of the IOP-sensing contact lens, Triggerfish, and was the first ophthalmologist to give a TEDx talk. A MIGS pioneer, Kaweh leads many instructional courses at international meetings and has over 65 peer-reviewed publications to his name. Mansouri is an avid skier, and if he is not in the office, he is in the mountains.

A nominator said: “In my humble view, Mansouri is by far one of the most gifted clinical talents across all relevant ophthalmological bases: clinical and surgical expertise, his ‘what’s possible’ attitude to research and future industry trends, his collaboration with industry, and his ability to communicate effectively with colleagues and patients.”
