Background Information 
Professional profile:
I qualified from the University of the Witwatersrand Medical School in Johannesburgh, South Africa in 1983. I underwent vocational training in family medicine and worked in general practice before returning to specialise in ophthalmology, becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh in 1995. I then undertook a doctoral program at St Thomas' Hospital, London investigating LASIK and PRK laser surgery for myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. I am a consultant ophthalmic surgeon at Hinchingbrooke Hospital and an honorary consultant ophthalmic surgeon at St Thomas' Hospital, London with sub specialty interests in corneal, cataract and refractive surgery.
