Retinal Detachment Surgery now available in Reading

April 2010

We are delighted to report the completion of a joint project between Mr Vaughan Tanner and Dunedin Hospital, Reading, allowing the introduction of state-of-the-art vitreoretinal surgery techniques.

Dunedin Hospital is now able to offer routine day case sutureless retinal surgery allowing treatment of all vitreoretinal conditions. Dunedin is the only private hospital in the UK currently offering routine use of fully disposable instruments, thus eliminating the risk of cross infection.

Mr Vaughan Tanner, Consultant Ophthalmologist, at Dunedin Hospital is responsible for leading the introduction of the service privately. Mr Tanner was appointed as Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon to the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading and King Edward VII Hospital, Windsor in 2001. He leads a Berkshire wide vitreo-retinal surgical team, provides a micro incision cataract service and heads a general ophthalmic team providing care for acute and routine eye conditions.
