The Power List 2015
Carvounis was born into a family of ophthalmologists, and fell in love with vitreoretinal surgery the first time he saw the fundus on a wide-field viewing system. With an interest in optimizing the patient experience, and visual outcomes after vitreoretinal surgery, he is currently publishing the outcomes of his surgical techniques. He has published over 46 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters, and has given over 70 presentations at international meetings. His awards include the AAO Achievement Award, the Honor Award from the ASRS, and he has been voted one of the Best Doctors of America annually for the last five years.
A nominator said: “Petros is a brilliant young leader in the field of ophthalmology. In particular, he is being groomed as a possible future President and Scientific Advisor of the Retina Research Foundation of Houston, Texas, and is now on the Board of Directors.”
