He is now an assessor for competency in laser refractive surgery and routinely performs lasik and lasek procedures and trains junior doctors in ophthalmology, particularly in cataract surgery. He has been a member of the Microsurgical Training Faculty of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists for over 10 years.
Mr Subramaniam has published papers in several peer review journals. In recognition of his work he has been appointed Honorary Visiting Senior Lecturer in the School of Life & Health Sciences at Aston University.
His spare time is devoted to improving vision in the developing world. He is actively involved with the charity Second Sight, which performs cataract surgery in developing countries.
