Ioannis G. Pallikaris (Greek: Παλλήκαρης Ιωάννης, born November 18, 1947) is a Greek ophthalmologist who in 1989 performed the first LASIK procedure on a human eye.[1] Pallikaris also developed Epi-LASIK.[2]

Professor Palikaris was the rector of the University of Crete between 2003 and 2011. He is also the founder and director of the Institute of Vision and Optics [3] in the same university. The institute focuses on providing high-quality specialized health services, such as refractive surgery, photodynamic therapy and the evaluation of vision operation through specialized diagnostic techniques. One of IVO's labs is the Vardinogianion Eye Institute of Crete (Βαρδινογιάννειο Εργαστήριο Μεταμοσχεύσεων και Μικροχειρουργικής Οφθαλμού), which provides health services ranging from primary to specialized tertiary treatment. Financially its activities are administered by the University of Crete's Research Account.
