Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Rogers was educated at Christ's Hospital School, near Horsham in West Sussex. From there he studied medicine in London at St Mary's Hospital and graduated in 1999. He undertook his basic ophthalmic training in Taunton and Southampton and following this gained a place on the Wessex higher surgical training rotation. In 2010 Mr Rogers completed his training and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and was included on the specialist register of Ophthalmic Surgeons. He has developed an interest in ophthalmic plastic surgery and has completed two fellowships in this subspecialty; one in the UK at Salisbury and Southampton hospitals and one at the Sydney Eye Hospital, Australia. During his career he has also found time to perform charity work in Burma, as part of the Myanmar Eye Care Program.

Mr Rogers offers routine and complex micro-incisional cataract surgery as well as a full range of ophthalmic plastic surgical procedures. These include upper and lower blepharoplasty, ptosis correction, eyelid skin cancer excision and reconstruction, lacrimal disorders and orbital disease. He has several publications in peer reviewed ophthalmology journals and has presented at national and international conferences.

Personal profile:

Mr Rogers has always been a keen sportsman. He has played rugby for St Mary's Hospital, Sussex, English Universities and Winchester. During his fellowship year, whilst living in Sydney, Australia, he was introduced to ocean swimming and competed in many ocean swims; this included the famous Palm Beach Whale Beach swim on Sydney's northern beaches.

After returning to the UK he has kept up his interest in open water swimming and has recently started competing in triathlons.
