Background Information 
Professional profile:

After studying medicine at Cambridge and Oxford universities, I completed my higher specialist training at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, gaining comprehensive clinical and surgical experience in all of the major specialities within ophthalmology. I spent two years as a Research Fellow in the Institute of Ophthalmology, researching into treatments that regulate how eyes heal after surgery, gaining my doctorate in 1998. In addition I comleted a clinical Fellowship in the Glaucoma Unit at Moorfields, gaining extensive experience into all aspects of the surgical and medical management of glaucoma.I have had a broad surgical training, including the use of modern small incision phacoemulsification and refractive surgery techniques to give improved outcomes after cataract surgery.  .In my consultant post, I provide a broad general ophthalmic service at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, running specialist glaucoma and cataract services, as well as running specialist clinics for medical retina problems and glaucoma, and a specialist cataract service. I am also establishing an active glaucoma research programme in the eye unit at the Royal Berkshire Hospital.
