Trained in advanced corneal surgery and refractive surgery, they also run the corneal fellowship programme at University Hospital Southampton NHS Trust, training future consultants. Actively involved in research, they are continually researching and paving the way for the future in treatment of corneal conditions and vision correction. In addition, they have broad range of general ophthalmic skills; so you can be reassured that in the very rare event of a complication, you will receive the highest quality care.

Laser Vision Eye Centre is one of a handful of refractive centres in the UK with the Visumax femtosecond laser, the most gentle and comfortable laser available. This makes us the only centre in south central England that provides SMILE laser eye surgery, the latest development in Laser Vision Correction.
We use the latest excimer laser by Carl Zeiss Meditec, the MEL 90, for our LASIK, Advanced Surface Ablation and PRESBYOND treatments. This allows us to provide the largest available range of Laser Vision Correction procedures.
Our sophisticated screening equipment and software will help us plan and deliver the best treatment for your needs and eyes. Combined with our state of the art laser equipment and surgeon experience, Laser Vision Eye Centre will provide the best choice for you:
Laser Vision Eye Centre is based at the Nuffield Health Wessex Hospital, Eastleigh, Hampshire with peripheral consultation clinics in other neighbouring towns and cities.

Mr Aris Konstantopoulos is a Consultant Eye Surgeon at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, where he specialises in treatments of the cornea, corneal surgery and cataract surgery.
Aris graduated from the University of Glasgow in 1999 and completed his core ophthalmology training in hospitals of the Oxford and Wessex Deaneries. This was followed by 2 years of advanced training on ‘Cornea and external eye disease’ at University Hospital Southampton.
Appreciating the importance of ophthalmic imaging in improving the diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the cornea, Aris then carried out novel research on imaging of the cornea with optical coherence tomography at the University of Southampton. His research led to the award of a PhD degree.
Following this, Aris subspecialised further by carrying out a ‘Fellowship in Cornea and Refractive surgery’ at the Singapore National Eye Centre and Singapore Eye Research Institute, one of the most prestigious and influential eye institutions in the world. He was taught refractive surgery by pioneers of Laser Vision Correction and SMILE, including Professors Donald Tan and Jod Mehta, and conducted research on new applications of femtosecond lasers. Aris remains an honorary research fellow at the Singapore Eye Research Institute.
