Dr Kwok is a full time NHS consultant in East Kent Hospital University Foundation Trust specialising in general ophthalmology, cataract surgery and medical diseases of the retina (most commonly diabetic retinopathy, retinal vascular occlusions, age-related macular degeneration, uveitis, and hereditary retinal diseases).

He regularly carries out intravitreal injections, YAG laser treatments, retinal argon laser treatments, and cataract surgery. He is based across various sites in Canterbury, Whitstable, Margate, Dover and Ashford. 

Dr Kwok studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh and subsequently underwent specialised ophthalmology training in the Wales deanery. Following this, he completed a medical retina fellowship in the world renowned Moorfields Eye Hospital in London before taking up his consultant post.

He is a fellow and college examiner of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists in London, and is a designated clinical and educational supervisor to junior doctors.

He currently lives in Canterbury and is married with two daughters. He speaks fluent English and Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese). In his spare time he enjoys playing table-tennis with his wife in the local Canterbury league.
