Mr David Allamby
Mr David Allamby is the founder and medical director of FOCUS in central London, a premier refractive clinic. Focus is the UK’s #1 clinic for vision outcome results, with 100% of typical short-sighted patients achieving 20/20 vision or even better. He is one of a limited number of UK surgeons who works in refractive surgery full-time.
As well as performing LASIK, LASEK and PRK, David is a recognised leader in the field of treating presbyopia (the age-related need for reading glasses). He was the first surgeon in the United Kingdom to perform Blended Vision for presbyopia in January 2003, the first UK surgeon to perform Z-LASIK with its advanced micro-bubble technology for both distance vision and reading vision, and the first UK surgeon to implant the KAMRA corneal inlay to correct presbyopia.
He was the first UK surgeon to achieve a 100% success rate for 20/20 vision after LASIK laser eye surgery.
He has worked at some of the United Kingdom’s leading eye centres including Moorfields Eye Hospital in London and the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital. Mr. Allamby’s published scientific work in ocular scar formation was undertaken at the University of Manchester, and was funded by a prestigious Wellcome Trust grant.
Mr. Allamby has provided surgical training to visiting doctors from countries around the world. His work in presbyopia has been rewarded by Focus becoming a European Centre of Excellence in 2012.
