Personal profile

Mr Agrawal is a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon and Honorary Assistant Professor at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. His training has been in international centres of excellence. He graduated in medicine from the University of Cambridge and holds a first class honours degree in biochemistry. His residency training was in Cambridge and the West Midlands where he developed a keen sub-specialist interest in cataract and glaucoma. Following this he completed a two-year medical and surgical glaucoma fellowship at the world prestigious Moorfields Eye Hospital, where he worked closely with two of the UK founding fathers of modern-day glaucoma filtration surgery.

Mr Agrawal has published over 20 peer reviewed scientific papers as well as written a book chapter in the world’s bestselling glaucoma textbook for specialists. He has published his work in the most prestigious ophthalmology journals and presented his research work at major national and international ophthalmology conferences and is regularly invited to speak, chair and moderate sessions at them. He is currently the undergraduate lead for ophthalmology and has been appointed the title of Honorary Assistant Professor by the University of Nottingham School of Medicine for his dedication to ophthalmic teaching and research.

He has performed several thousand cataract operations with a complication rate significantly lower than the national average. Mr Agrawal is vastly experienced in glaucoma filtration surgery including augmented trabeculectomy and aqueous-shunt tube surgery, and has performed hundreds of laser treatments for glaucoma including selective laser trabeculoplasty and cyclodiode laser. He has trained several international fellows in these modern-day techniques and is an examiner for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists as well as a trainer on the prestigious microsurgical surgical skills course.

Mr Agrawal’s aim is to provide the highest standard of glaucoma therapy, cataract surgery and ophthalmic expertise in a caring and informed manner, as well as the most up-to-date and appropriate treatment for his patients.
