Dr. Seibel’s Curriculum Vitae

Biography

For over two decades, Barry S. Seibel, M.D. has concentrated on refractive eye surgery, especially cataract and lens implant surgery.  He is the sole author and illustrator of the critically acclaimed and best-selling cataract surgery textbook “Phacodynamics”, now in its fourth edition and with four translations. Frequently referred to as “the bible of cataract surgery”, his book uniquely applies engineering principles to facilitate customized surgery for each individual patient, facilitating the gentlest, safest, and most effective possible surgery.  Dr. Seibel is able to apply these Phacodynamic principles using advanced Dual Linear Pedal Control; he is among the very few (about 1%) of US surgeons to do so.

Dr. Seibel is a U.S. Patent holder, and has invented more than 20 surgical instruments for both cataract and LASIK surgery.  He is also a dedicated teacher who has given more than 300 eye surgery lectures in over 20 countries on six continents, and he has demonstrated his surgical technique around the world.  These live surgery events have been observed via satellite by thousands of eye surgeons in multiple countries interested in learning Dr. Seibel’s methods.

He has served as a bioengineering consultant to multiple ophthalmic companies, including pioneering work in microrobotics and laser cataract surgery. He was the first Southern California surgeon to use the femtosecond laser in cataract surgery, and is a named inventor on some of the core patents for this technology.

Dr. Seibel is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Rice University and completed his eye surgery residency at the USC Doheny Eye Institute.  He is on the clinical faculty at UCLA Geffen School of Medicine, where he has received the Residents’ Teaching Award.  Dr. Seibel also serves on the faculty for Harvard Medical School’s Annual Advanced Cataract Course.

Dr Seibel offers Laser Cataract Surgery and enhanced lens implants like Technis Multifocal, Crystalens, Symfony, and Toric lenses to reduce or eliminate astigmatism and glasses dependence.  He personally examines and spends time with each patient to help determine their best options.
