MSc, FRCS, FRCSEd, FRCOphth
I have been a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon since September 1983, specialising in ophthalmic surgery of the front of the eye which I teach internationally.
I trained at St Thomas’ Hospital, London where I won the Hudson Prize in Ophthalmology (1971) and was Research Senior Registrar at Oxford University, being awarded an MSc degree in 1983. I was an examiner for FRCS and MRCS at the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh, 1997-2003.
I received the American Academy of Ophthalmology Achievement Award in May 2010. I also received the Gold Achievement Award from the United Kingdom and Ireland Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (UKISCRS), in 2010, in recognition of distinguished service.
In 2011 I was awarded the Pearce Medal from UKISCRS and in 2016 I received a Lifetime Achievement Award for my glaucoma surgery work.
