Theo Seiler

Theo Seiler’s doctorates in physics and medicine enabled him to become a pioneer of refractive surgery. Among his achievements are the development of the first clinical dye laser and the invention of corneal crosslinking (CXL); he also performed the first ever PTK, PRK and wavefront-laser guided surgical techniques on the human eye, and was also the first to combine LASIK and rapid CXL. Seiler founded the renowned Institute for Refractive and Ophthalmic Surgery (IROC) in 2002.
