Background Information 
Professional profile:
I have been practising as an NHS consultant since July 2004.

I completed by general ophthalmology training in Dublin, Ireland. I have also done a paediatric and neuro-ophthalmology fellowship at Leicester and a paediatric ophthalmology fellowship at the Sick Children's Hospital in Toronto, Canada.

I am happy to see all children's eye problems. I am also happy to see adults with cataracts or other general ophthalmology conditions.

I have clinics on the first and third Monday of each month.
