Consultant Ophthalmologist at Volvat-ORBITA Eye Clinic
Alexander is a consultant ophthalmologist at Volvat-ORBITA Eye Clinic in Oslo and Bergen. His main focus lays on cataracts and cataract surgery, and he has graduated by Prof. Dan Reinstein at the London Vision Clinic in refractive surgery. Alexander has previously worked as a chief physician at Haukeland University Hospital and as a researcher at the Universities of Oslo, Copenhagen and Rochester (United States). Some of his previous research and doctoral work in the USA and Oslo was focused on modern optical imaging methods and neurophysiology (read more). Recently, he and some fellow ophthalmologists discovered a new system for fluid drainage from the retina through the optic nerve, with potentially important implications for future diagnostics and treatment of e.g. glaucoma (here’s an interesting lecture about it).
