23 February 2017

In February 2017, pioneering eye-surgeon and RCSI Alumnus, Sheraz Daya (Medicine, Class of 1984) took to the stage with his former patient, TV presenter & author, Katie Piper for the third of the Alumni ‘In conversation with...'.

Mr Daya, a ground-breaking Ophthalmologist & Medical Director of Centre for Sight in the UK, is credited as the surgeon who restored Katie Piper's vision after her vicious acid attack in 2008.

At the event in RCSI, they shared the story of Katie's recovery, from the viewpoint of both the patient and her surgeon, and also discussed Mr Daya's vision for the future of ophthalmic surgery.


‘In conversation with...' showcases RCSI Alumni and other inspiring role models who are front-runners in their field, celebrating those who have been successful as healthcare innovators and global thought-leaders.
