Clinical Interests

I specialise in:

  • Oculoplastic surgery with specific interests in cosmetic surgery (including Blepharoplasty)
  • Eyelid malposition (ptosis, entropion, ectropion)
  • Lacrimal (watery eye) disorders
  • Periocular tumour excision and reconstruction
  • Thyroid eye disease
  • Orbital tumours and socket surgery (including evisceration and orbital implants)
  • Small incision cataract surgery

In my NHS and private practice, I have at least two operating lists per week, during which I operate on Oculoplastic/Orbital and lacrimal surgical cases. Additionally, I have regular cataract surgery operating lists. Audits of my practice reveal high success rates and low complication rates of surgery.

Personal profile

I have been a Consultant Ophthalmologist for over 20 years and am an expert in Oculoplastic, Orbital and Lacrimal Surgery. Prior to taking up my consultant post, I carried out Fellowships with world-renowned experts in cosmetic and oculoplastic surgery, first in Southampton and Salisbury Hospitals, and then at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London.

I have a strong training record in both Oculoplastic surgery and Cataract surgery. I am also a senior examiner for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. I am currently president elect of the Midland Oculoplastic surgeon’s society
