I am a Consultant Ophthalmologist with a sub-specialty in medical retina. I have developed photodynamic therapy in Hull for wet age-related macular degeneration and I am involved with the co-ordination of improvement of the diabetic screening service in the region. My surgical experience includes over 1,000 cataract operations, glaucoma drainage procedures and eyelid corrections including over 200 blepharoplastys, squint surgery and dacrycysto-rhinostomy. I also have a wide range of laser therapies to treat a range of retinal diseases. I treat medical conditions like AMD, diabetic retinopathy and vascular occlusions, all of which give blurred vision.
