Mr Jagmohan Chawla
Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon
MD, FRCS (Glasgow), FRC Ophth
I am a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at Spire Hartswood in Brentwood, Essex, offering private eye surgery in their clean and comfortable private hospital.
My special interests include refractive phacoemulsification, oculoplastic surgery and refractive surgery. Refractive phacoemulsification is suitable for patients with cataracts and high refractive errors. It requires the use of multifocal lens implants and astigmatic keratotomy. One of the newer procedures that I offer is varifocal lens implants, which can include the correction of astigmatism. This technique enables the majority of patients to achieve relative independence from glasses.
I also manage complicated cataract patients using lens implant exchange and 'piggyback' lens implants. I also undertake oculoplastic procedures like blepharoplasty, ptosis, malpositions of lids, eyelid cancers with reconstruction, and tear duct obstruction using radio-frequency surgery techniques.
Radiofrequency surgery is also useful for the removal of warts, keratosis lesions, moles (nevi), widened blood vessels (telangiectasia), skin tags, mucous membrane grafts, punctal occlusion (a procedure in which the tear ducts are blocked) and eyelashes growing inwards toward the eye (trichiasis) with minimal scarring.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Jagmohan Chawla at Spire include:
Consultant Ophthalmic and Oculoplastic Surgeon, Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust.
I am a keen gardener. I am involved in several charities and voluntary organisations like the Lions Club. I have, in the past, organised several surgical eye camps overseas. My other passion is listening to music.
