November 1, 2003

Vadim Filatov, 39, of Greenwich, a prominent ophthalmologist and LASIK surgeon, and the founder and director of Diamond Vision, died Thursday, Oct. 30, at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City.

He died from liver disease, according to his family.

Born Sept. 25, 1964, in Baku, Azerbaijan, he was a son of Lillian Filatov of Greenwich.

Dr. Filatov founded Diamond Vision in 1996 after becoming disillusioned with the open-access laser center where he operated.

He developed the Filatov Preventive System utilizing the four S's -- sterility, surgical skills, screening and state-of-the-art technology. This system is still used in Diamond Visions offices and laser centers in Greenwich, Westport, Glastonbury, New York City, Paramus, N.J., and Garden City, N.Y.

Diamond Vision has since been nominated as one of the 50 best LASIK practices in the country.

Dr. Filatov has treated celebrities such as Tiki Barber and Lawrence Taylor of the New York Giants, Curtis Sliwa, Sue Wicks, Lord John Eatwell, Waldy Malouf, Tito Nieves and Alice Stockton-Rossini.

He immigrated to the United States with his mother when he was 14. He was an avid chess player as a child and befriended another Baku native, renowned chess champion Gary Kasparov.

Dr. Filatov had an impoverished childhood, but earned academic scholarships to the Dalton School, Amherst College and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He went on to do an ophthalmology residency at Yale University and a fellowship in refractive surgery at Harvard.

To pay for his studies he worked nights and weekends at a VA hospital in the emergency room.

After his fellowship he settled in Greenwich with his wife, Isabelle Filatov of Greenwich. At the time LASIK was just being developed and he became the first to offer the procedure to Connecticut patients.

In addition to his wife and mother, he is survived by three sons, Pierre Filatov, Armand Filatov and Alexander Filatov, all of Greenwich.

Services will be 11:30 a.m. Monday at Leo P. Gallagher and Son Funeral Home, 31 Arch St., Greenwich.

Burial will follow in Putnam Cemetery, Greenwich.

Memorial donations can be made to a college fund for the Filatov children, c/o lawyer Mark Harrison, 3 Research Drive, Woodbridge, CT 06525.
