Mr. Deepak Chitkara

For over 25 years Mr Chitkara has established a reputation as one of the leading experts in Refractive or Corrective Eye surgery in UK and Internationally.

Graduate of Manchester University Medical School in 1983 – MBChB with Honours in Physiology and Biochemistry, Mr Chitkara trained as an Eye surgeon in Manchester and North-East England passing his specialist post-graduate exams and becoming a fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologist (FRCOphth) in 1993. He developed a passion for corrective (refractive) eye surgery during his specialist training in Cornea and Refractive Surgery in USA. The fellowship was completed with distinction under Professor Marguerite McDonald in New Orleans in 1995. Prof McDonald is the first person in the world to perform Laser eye surgery and a world-renowned authority in Corneal and Laser Eye surgery.

As part of his research project he helped to develop the First Radar Tracking Excimer Laser for corrective eye surgery produced by Autonomous Technologies. This same technology is used today by NASA to dock the space shuttle with the International Space Station and is now used in eye lasers to follow the eye during laser treatment.

Viewpoint Vision remains at the leading edge of technological developments in Corrective surgery. In addition to advanced Laser surgery we also offer the very latest and advanced Multifocals and Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) implants for Lens replacement surgery.

Patient Feedback

"Had my Lasek surgery on both eyes back in November, it is something i'd never look back on. I was made very relaxed by Deepak during the surgery to the aftercare, which i must say has been very thorough and second to none. I now don't have to wear contact lenses or glasses because my eyesight is now as good as 20/20 vision. I couldn't recommend Viewpoint highly enough! Thank you"
