Background Information 
Professional profile:

I am a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital Foundation Trust. I completed  comprehensive Ophthalmology Residency training on the prestigious North Thames and Moorfields Eye Hospital rotation giving me the opportunity to spend a few years working in Europe's largest Eye Hospital and gain a vast amount of experience in all fields of Ophthalmology including complex cataract surgery.  Following this I pursued my interest in medical retina with a fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital during which I led the largest modern day clinical trial addressing diabetic retinopathy and driving vision standards.  This has been recently published in the JAMA Ophthalmology journal.
Further information is available at

My main  areas of interest are  retinal conditions, general ophthalmology and cataract surgery. 

I have performed over 1000 of each of the listed procedures:
Intravitreal injections,
Yag laser capsulotomies,
Retinal laser procedures,
Cataract surgeries

In addition to my clinical work, I am Clinical Lead of the Retinal Vascular Occlusion Service at the Luton and Dunstable Foundation NHS Trust and Teaching Hospital.
I am also actively involved in training and education and am an Educational Supervisor for Ophthalmology  trainee doctors.

I have over 20 peer-reviewed publications and have presented my work at both national and international conferences.  

I feel very passionately about my work and am committed to continuing professional development and working in partnership with my patients to provide them with what I feel is the best possible care.

Personal profile:

I enjoy spending my time with my family of 2 young children,  practising yoga and reading.
