Professor John Marshall is best known for inventing and patenting the revolutionary Excimer laser for the correction of refractive disorders with in excess of 65 million procedures now having been undertaken worldwide. For this innovation he has been recognise throughout the world by professional colleagues and institutions although he has a very low media profile He also created the worlds first Diode laser for treating eye problems of diabetes, glaucoma and ageing. His lifelong studies of the ageing retina have led to the development and patenting of a revolutionary new laser, 2RT, which is proving successful in the treatment of dry AMD.
Professor John Marshall is the Frost Professor of Ophthalmology and Director responsible for Enterprise and Innovation at the Institute of Ophthalmology, University College, London in association with Moorfields Eye Hospital. He is Emeritus Professor of Ophthalmology at Kings College London, Honorary Distinguished Professor University of Cardiff, Honorary Professor the City University and Honorary Professor Glasgow Caledonian University. His research over the past almost 60 years has ranged over a number of ocular problems but has concentrated on the development of lasers for use in ophthalmic diagnosis and surgery, the inter-relationships between light and ageing, together with the environmental mechanisms underlying age-related, diabetic and inherited retinal diseases. This work has resulted in over five hundred research papers, 44 book chapters and 7 books.
He is editor and co-editor of numerous international journals. He has successfully trained over 60 students for higher doctorates. He has given 50 eponymous lectures with 3 more to be to be presented this year ,2023, and has received numerous awards together with 25 prestigious medals including the Nettleship Medal of the Ophthalmological Society of the United Kingdom, the Mackenzie Medal, the Raynor M1edal, the Ridley Medal, the Ashton Medal, the Ida Mann Medal , the Lord Crook Gold Medal of the Worshipful Company of Spectacle Makers, the Doyne Medal of the Oxford Congress, the Peter Watson medal of the Cambridge Symposium, the Barraquer Medal of the International Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the Kelman Innovator Award and Medal of the American Society for Refractive and Cataract Surgery, the Lim Medal of the Singapore National Eye Centre and the Junius-Kuhnt Award and Medal for his work on AMD. In 2014 he was honoured with the Zivojnovic Award by the European Vitreo Retinal Society, a lifetime achievement award by the UK & Irish Society for Cataract & Refractive Surgery, delivered the Bowman Lecture and received the Bowman Medal. He has been consistently voted into the Ophthalmologist Power List of the most influential people in the world of ophthalmology, and was the only scientist. He has been visiting professor at numerous universities on every continent.
He has more than fifty patents and has held posts chairing the medical advisory boards of many international companies and was a director of Diomed for some years, this being the leading supplier of diode laser systems for general surgery. He has sat on and chaired many national and international committees* concerned with protecting the public against the possible damaging effects of lasers and other artificial light sources.
John played the leading role with the ICRC, chairing a scientific review committee and addressed the United Nations to obtain a Geneva Convention banning the use of anti-personnel laser weapons.

He is also an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, an Honorary Fellow of The College of Optometrists, a Fellow and past Director of the Laser Institute of America, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and an Honorary Fellow of Cardiff University. He has a Senior Achievement Award of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Euretina Award of the European Society of Retinal Surgeons. In 2009 he was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons and the American Academy of Ophthalmologists. He is a Fellow of ophthalmological societies of several different countries, as well as being elected to the European Academy of Ophthalmology. During 2011-2012 he was the Master of the Worshipful Company of Spectacle Makers. In 2013 he was awarded the MBE in the 2013 New Year Honours List for services to Ophthalmology and an honorary DSc from Glasgow Caledonian University. In 2015 he was awarded an honorary DSc by the London Metropolitan University and elected Chartered Scientist by the Royal Society of Biology in 2017. He was appointed Honorary President of the International Society of High Technology in Ophthalmology in 2018. In 2019 he was awarded the Laser Ambassador Award of the Association of Industrial Laser Users for his work in promulgating lasers to the general public and was elected a Fellow of the European Academy of Translational Medicine Professionals. He delivered the 2019 Dame Ida Mann lecture to the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists. This year 2023, he will deliver the Joseph Colin award lecture to the American- European Congress of Ophthalmic Surgery, the 2023 DOC lecture, at the 35th international Congress of Germany Ophthalmic and the inaugural Ridley award lecture of the United Kingdom and Ireland, Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.
He continues to play a very active role in industry having served on the board of Avellino, a genetic diagnostic company and is now the chairman of their Executive Scientific Advisory Committee. He is a director of AlphaRet the company building and distributing the 2RT Laser for AMD, which is currently undergoing clinical trials. In the world of start-ups he is senior scientific advisor to Gebauer in relation to using pig corneal tissue to treat disease and refractive problems, a senior scientific consultant to Toku eyes concerning the role of AI, and to Excelsius in developing novel refractive lasers. He also consults for a number of the major international companies in the field of ophthalmology. Outside ophthalmology, he is currently executive chairman of a company using nano technology to diagnose prostate cancer by using a device, rather like a pregnancy test, dipping male urine to give a colour change if a particular protein marker is present, the system will also be capable of simultaneously giving a response for PSA.
