Background Information 
Professional profile:

I trained at Moorfields Eye and The Western Eye Hospitals in London, where I gained experience in all the major ophthalmic subspecialties.

I have completed a fellowship in corneal, cataract and external eye disease and I am familiar with surgical and laser treatments of complex cataract, corneal, conjunctival and refractive eye problems.

I am particularly interested in the visual outcomes of cataract surgery and have researched into the use of mutlifocal and intra-ocular lenses following cataract surgery.

I run the corneal subspecialty service across the region, with clinics and operating at both The Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading and the Oxford Eye Hospital. I also have general ophthalmic clincs both in Newbury and Wallingford.
