As a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon working in the U.K. I am fully registered with the General Medical Council and on the Specialist Register.

Having undergone comprehensive higher surgical training in my Specialty both in the U.K. and abroad I have pride in being able to provide the highest level of care, advice and treatment for my patients. In addition I have extensive subspecialty training in the medical and surgical management of vitreous, retinal, and macular disorders.

I manage and treat all types of eye disorders that require both medical and surgical care providing a general ophthalmic (including cataract and glaucoma) service and a specialist service in all aspects of retinal and macular disease.

I continuously refresh and update my knowledge and skills ensuring that my patients benefit from the most up to date treatments available.
