WELCOME

Mr Lascaratos is a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon specialising in glaucoma and cataract surgery at King’s College Hospital, London. He prides himself on delivering the highest quality patient care and is committed to providing a personalised approach to eye care with a focus on patient experience and clinical outcomes.

He is an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer in Ophthalmology at King’s College London and at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology. He has served as a Member of the European Glaucoma Panel IV and Mentoring Programme and is a regular examiner for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. He is also the Lead for the ophthalmology urgent referral service at King’s College Hospital.

Mr Lascaratos completed the South Thames surgical training programme in ophthalmology in London, including subspecialty glaucoma fellowship training at Moorfields Eye Hospital, and has more than 12 years’ experience in Ophthalmology.

He specialises in the medical, laser and surgical management of all types of adult glaucoma, including trabeculectomy and aqueous shunt devices, cutting edge minimally invasive glaucoma surgery, glaucoma revision surgery and complex cataract surgery, especially in patients with glaucoma. His cataract complication rate is less than 0.5 per cent, which is way below the national average, despite the complexity of the operations he performs. He also offers premium intraocular lenses to correct astigmatism and reduce spectacle dependence for near and distance.

Mr Lascaratos has a passion for translational clinical research and is currently the Principal Investigator for a large prospective study between Moorfields and King’s College investigating the role of mitochondrial function as a novel biomarker for glaucoma. Based on his innovative PhD work in Glaucoma at University College London and his MSc work at Oxford University he has unique expertise in cellular bioenergetics in glaucoma and its relevance to the development of new glaucoma treatments.

His private practice is based at the London Eye Diagnostic Centre in Harley Street, at King’s Private in south east London, and at the BMI hospitals in north and central London and in Blackheath.

Mr Lascaratos has been looking after me since early this year as I required a pressure reducing operation - following Glaucoma in my left eye. Each time I have met and seen Mr Lascaratos he has treated me with dignity, respect and reassuringly...

Mrs C.A.

Thank you so much for setting the ball rolling with my laser and following up to make sure I have my sight back. Thank you once more for being so kind caring and professional.

Mrs E.P.

Many beautiful things cannot be seen or touched. They are felt within the heart. Thank you for your help from the bottom of my heart! You are my Hero Doctor. Please keep up your good work. Reward is from God. I really appreciate you.

Mr C.G.

Mr Lascaratos not only communicates clearly but adjusts his level of communication depending on the receiver and matches their knowledge level. He also doesn't forget that patients, whilst stressed, can still require simple and clear reassurance...

I was impressed with the quality of care I received from Mr Lascaratos, who was always very thorough and polite. Mr Lascaratos is an experienced ophthalmologist and skilled surgeon. Sympathetic and sensitive, he takes time with patients to discuss their condition and I felt reassured at all times. I would highly recommend him.

I met Mr Lascaratos when I went to Kings Hospital for cataract review and possible surgery. He examined me thoroughly and recommended I should have surgery since my eye was becoming bad. He did the surgery himself alongside other aids...

I am writing to thank you most sincerely for the excellent care you gave me on the day of State opening of Parliament. You were very thorough with your history, examination and investigation. You took a great deal of time to explain everything to me and start treatment. As you predicted, in 48hrs my eye was improving and was completely better at one week. If only all doctors were as kind, gentle and competently caring as you, we would have fewer problems in medicine.

Dr Lascaratos fame has spread
But he has not let it go to his head
He is perfectly charming
With a manner disarming...

Mr G.P.

Thank you so much for your superb attention to my eye problem. I have been so blessed to have you attending to me. I want to wish you and your family a wonderful holiday. I hope you and your family are really able to enjoy some true time together.

Mrs B.R.

I just wanted to say thank you for your expertise in doing my cataract operation. You have given me my life back to be able to see so well again.

When I needed to consult with Mr Lascaratos I was literally in darkness and full of trepidation, but his very passionate and professional PA and his team soon had me relaxed and they could not have done more for me. Mr Lascaratos was reassuring, supportive and fully informative regarding the treatment which was required and the future procedures involved. Now after having had very successful surgery to both eyes I have no doubt that I was under the care of a genius.. I would highly recommend Mr Lascaratos to anyone that requires eye treatment or consultation.

Dr Gerassimos Lascaratos, is an incredibly polite, calm and pleasant doctor to speak to and deal with. He takes time to understand your concerns and no question is too much (or silly). He provided me with a series of options, taking me through the pros and cons of each and even called me the day after my initial consultation with some additional thoughts. I would go as far as to say, he is by far the most personable and professional consultant I have ever come across. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs to/ is considering seeing an ophthalmologist. He also has a fantastic PA/partner to help run the practice who will make you feel at ease and taken care of from the moment you pick up the phone!

Mr Lascaratos has been looking after me since early this year as I required a pressure reducing operation - following Glaucoma in my left eye. Each time I have met and seen Mr Lascaratos he has treated me with dignity, respect and reassuringly. I have always felt confident and admire his ability to administer his best practice not just to me but also to other patients I have met waiting to be seen in the clinic, even when walking through an OPD clinic corridor and will always smile and say hello and looks very calm. I have received timely information about my ongoing care and the treatment which is explained well to me and have always felt involved when making decisions regarding my treatment in moving forward at each visit. Mr Lascaratos, is genuinely welcoming and interested in helping and answers all my questions and concerns professionally and in a concise manner, which makes me feel more confident and stress free. An excellent example to the NHS.

Mr Lascaratos not only communicates clearly but adjusts his level of communication depending on the receiver and matches their knowledge level. He also doesn't forget that patients, whilst stressed, can still require simple and clear reassurance. I have a broad experience with healthcare Consultants having worked clinically as an ODP and Resuscitation Officer and later as a senior manager in the NHS working closely with surgeons, anesthetists, medics etc and over the last number of years pathologists. It has become apparent that often communication skills and empathy are traded for skill level and we forgive the former if the latter is present. It is a rare thing to find that you have both in an individual. Mr Lascaratos is one of those rare likeable experts.

He did the surgery himself alongside other aids. Believe me he was very professional and my sight is now very good. I would recommend Mr Lascaratos to anyone who wants a thorough examination and perfect handling of ones problems.

Dr Lascaratos fame has spread
But he has not let it go to his head
He is perfectly charming
With a manner disarming
With a comforting manner by your bed

Most patients they are at a loss
Until they meet Dr Lascaratos
He is so talented and wise
He repairs their eyes
Makes them clear by removing the dross.
