Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Vernon Geh is a consultant ophthalmic surgeon at Spire Hartswood private hospital in Brentwood, Essex and Spire Wellesley hospital in Southend, Essex offering private eye surgery in our clean and comfortable private hospital.

I obtained my medical degree at Nottingham University Medical School.

As a senior house officer training in ophthalmology, I held posts in Stoke-on-Trent, St. James University Hospital, Leeds and Bradford Royal Infirmary.

I completed my higher surgical training as a specialist registrar in London. Hospital attachments included St. George University Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital.

I spent a further two years training in my sub-specialty interest in paediatric ophthalmology and strabismus. This was undertaken as a clinical fellowship at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children and Moorfields Eye Hospital.

I am currently a consultant ophthalmic surgeon at Southend and Orsett hospitals where I provide a general ophthalmic and cataract service and a specialist service in paediatric ophthalmology and in paediatric and adult motility disorders including squints.

Personal profile:
I enjoy foreign travel, gastronomy, cycling, rollerblading and playing the saxophone.
