About the Author

Keith Barton

Barton is a Consultant Ophthalmologist and Director of The Glaucoma Service, Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, UK. His principal interests are the surgical management of glaucoma (especially with aqueous shunt devices and MIGS approaches) and secondary glaucomas – Keith runs an NHS clinic at Moorfields that’s uniquely dedicated to the management of glaucoma in uveitis. However, Keith’s skillset goes beyond surgery. He’s well known for organizing and running glaucoma educational symposia that have attracted significant acclaim, and he famously co-founded and organized (with Kuldev Singh) the Ophthalmology Futures Forum investor networking events that take place in both Europe and Asia. He was voted to #10 on the 2018 Power List.
