Professional profile:
Andrew Luff took up his post as Consultant Opthalmic Surgeon at Southampton Eye Unit in 1995. Having qualified from Oxford University and Guys Hospital, he trained initially as a general surgeon, moving to opthamology in 1988. He spent two years in fellowship training at Moorfields Eye Hospital before returning to Southampton as a consultant.
