I have expertise in acute (emergency) ophthalmology, general ophthalmology, cataract and minor eyelid surgery and the medical treatment of retinal disease (this includes injections into the eye (Lucentis or Avastin) for the wet type of age related macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease and either injections (Lucentis or Avastin) or steroid implant (Ozurdex) for retinal vein occlusion and also laser treatment to the back of the eye.
My practice at Spire Liverpool Hospital reflects my practice at St Paul’s Eye Unit where my biggest commitment is to the emergency / new patient clinic at St Paul’s (Primary Care Clinic). As a consequence I am used to dealing with patients who present with a wide variety of symptoms.
I undertake treatment of those diseases which are within my expertise and refer on to a colleague with the necessary specialist expertise if necessary, for example, those that require retinal surgery.
My medical retina practice is supported by a very comprehensive imaging service at Spire Liverpool Hospital which minimises the interval from diagnosis to treatment in, for example, the wet type of macular degeneration.
I have a regular once per week outpatient clinic at Spire Liverpool Hospital. I see new patients referred either by their general practitioner or their optometrist, there are one or two new patient slots on each of my clinics so that requests to see new patients can always be accommodated within two weeks and I am perfectly happy for new urgent cases to be added to the end of the clinic if necessary.
