Graduation in classical studies with the highest school marks.
Graduated in Medicine and Surgery, with the highest school marks and e printing dignity at the University of Torino in October
1976.Specialized in Ophthalmology, with the highest school marks and e printing dignity at the University of Torino in July 1980.
Registered at “l’ordine dei Medici of Turin”
He has about 28.000 interventions made on the anterior segment and on the posterior segment.
He is particularly interested in surgery of anterior segment and refractive surgery.
He worked for thirteen years at the department of pathology and retinal surgery to the Ophthalmic Hospital of Turin
Since 1981 freelance.
Is the Coordinator for general ophthalmology. He is mainly engaged in refractive surgery and cataract surgery. FORMATION Doct. Luca Vigo is graduated with honors and praise at the State University of Milan, headquarters where he also received his specialization in Ophthalmology with 70/70 cum laude. In 1994 he made a stage at the University of California in Los Angeles (USA), and since then he deals with refractive surgery.
