About

Mr Michael Tappin is a Consultant Ophthalmologist based in London, Guildford and Woking who specialises in cornea, cataract, anterior segment and refractive laser and lens surgery. 

He is a founding member and director of LaserVision, a specialist eye clinic offering the full range of eye treatments in private hospitals across the UK. LaserVision surgeons use the most advanced cutting-edge technology, including one of few Ziemer Z8 femtosecond lasers in the UK used for laser eye surgery and laser cataract surgery.

Mr Tappin qualified in Medicine from St Mary's Medical School, London in 1999. He went on to complete his specialist training in Sheffield and North Thames, including Moorfields Eye Hospital. He went on to further specialise in corneal, laser and refractive surgery and he undertook fellowships at Moorfields Hospital and Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Perth. He was appointed as a Consultant in 2001. Mr Tappin currently practices at the Royal Surrey NHS Hospital alongside his private clinics.

Outside his practice, Mr Tappin has been involved in research on corneal transplant surgery and in cataract lens implants. He regularly lectures on corneal transplantation and was the first surgeon in the UK to perform DMEK, an innovative endothelial cell transplantation technique. He also recently published a new surgical technique for the treatment of pterygium.
