Dr. Angelo Appiotti, with over 30 years of experience and more than 40,000 eyes treated, is the most trustworthy, reliable and encouraging solution for treating your vision problems through customised surgical and laser techniques. He works at the following prestigious eye clinics: Vista Vision (Milan and Verona) and Villa Richeldi (Modena).
I have always known I wanted to become a surgeon. When I was a teenager, with a basketball under my arm, I used to sneak into a renowned clinic in Rome and stare in amazement at the activities of the ward through the glass wall, captivated by the smell of disinfectant and by the surgical scrubs. I developed a fascination for sight, one of the most complex and important senses, at the faculty of Medicine: after that, it was just natural for me to choose corneal refractive surgery to provide an answer to the many vision disorders affecting the quality of life of many and being an impedimento to professional and sport activities.
In my career of over 30 years, passion, research, and quest for excellence have been the cornerstones that allowed me to challenge myself and master cutting-edge laser techniques (from Lasik to Femto-Lasik, up to Relex SMILE) to treat eyesight problems while also dealing with cases that others considered inoperable, devising techniques and gaining considerable experience in handling complications.
My love for sports and especially for basketball, which I played at a competitive level, as well as the importance of visual acuity for athletes and its psychological implications, led me to devise a customised refractive surgery for professional athletes, applying procedures that allow to achieve vision from 10/10 up to 20/10, with overall improvement of visual acuity.
Many world-famous athletes, like thousands of other patients who want to improve their quality of life, have come to me to correct their vision problem and to stop wearing glasses and contact lenses, which were hindering their performance and safety.
During my career I have treated more than 40,000 eyes.
My enthusiasm and passion for my job, together with my deep empathy, are the reason why I decided to take part, as an ophthalmologist volunteer, in humanitarian missions to Africa and Asia, where I created and personally set up clinics and operating theatres.
Dr. Appiotti visits patients and performs refractive surgery operations in selected eye clinics in Milan, Verona, and Modena (Carpi), which are renowned for their state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and laser technologies.
