Dr Goran Helgason graduated from Gothenburg University, Sweden in 1984. He became a Consultant Ophthalmologist in 1991 specialising in anterior segment eye surgery. In 1996 he joined Medocular Eye Clinics, one of Sweden's best refractive surgery practices. Dr Helgason has written numerous peer reviewed papers and presented his work at the most prestigious Ophthalmic conferences all over the World. He is also an International course instructor and medical advisor for STAAR Surgical, a leading manufacturer of ICL lenses. Dr Helgason is a big advocate of ICL lenses, so much so that he chose to have Implantable Contact Lenses himself.
"After years of implanting ICLs into the eyes of my patients, I became awkward talking to them about vision correction while wearing spectacles myself. Gradually, my patients convinced me that the ICL works so well that I thought: Why shouldn't I use it for myself, even with only low myopia? In summer 2004 I had bilateral surgery which only took 30 minutes and went perfectly. I didn't feel anything. The very next day I was back to work. I am thrilled with the result. As a surgeon, I rely on an excellent quality of vision in my daily work. My sight now is even better than I expected."
