Dr Keith Barton is a Glaucoma Specialist at Moorfields, Professor of Ophthalmology in UCL, and surgical innovator who has pioneered treatments in the commercially unattractive area of surgical intervention in advanced and complex glaucomas as well as MIGS. He is known throughout the world for surgery, has been instrumental in landmark trials that have defined the evidence base for glaucoma drainage devices and refined that for lasers and trabeculectomy, including TVT, ABC, PTVT, TAGS, and LIGHT. He co-designed the Paul Glaucoma Implant and has dedicated his career to refining GDD implantation to achieve physiological IOP control in early after surgery.

Dr Barton has been BJO Editor-in-Chief, Chair of Glaucoma UK (charity), Director of Moorfields’ Clinical Glaucoma Service, and Hong Leong Visiting Professor at National University of Singapore. Awarded the Charamis Medal for achievement in surgery, he is also Treasurer of ISGS, founder of ESCRS Glaucoma Day, and founded and continues to organise the much-acclaimed Moorfields International Glaucoma Symposium. He co-founded and runs Ophthalmology Futures Forums providing a platform for innovative startups to pitch to corporate leaders and financiers in an environment directed by clinicians, which last year celebrated its 10th year. He has twice been in the Power List (no. 10 in 2018).
