Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Rakesh Jayaswal at Spire include:
My major interest and subspecialisation is cataract, refractive laser and lens surgery and corneal disease. I was appointed in Portsmouth to lead and develop a specialised corneal service and am able to provide all current treatments and techniques in the management of corneal and external eye disease.
I offer routine and complex micro-incisional and femtosecond laser cataract surgery, and combine this with the use of premium intra-ocular lenses. I also specialise in corneal surgery, including full thickness and lamellar corneal transplantation, collagen cross-linking and laser refractive surgery including LASEK, LASIK and refractive lens exchange.
I have also worked as a lecturer and anatomy demonstrator for undergraduate students. I undertook my corneal training with Professor Dua in Nottingham and with the leading consultants at the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, where I worked as a corneal and refractive fellow.
Having completed my studies at Manchester University, I trained in surgery before embarking on my ophthalmic training. During this time, I worked at several of the major institutions including the London, Nottingham, Sheffield and Manchester teaching hospitals.
I have many publications in peer reviewed ophthalmology journals, and regularly chair and present at national and international conferences around the world. I am also an invited guest reviewer for the British Journal of Ophthalmology and Eye, the Royal College journal.

I like to maintain a good work-life balance and achieve this via sport and music. I regularly play cricket, football, tennis, enjoy skiing and am a keen runner hoping to run a half marathon soon.
I own 100% of the Pentacam, 2 Haag Streit Slit Lamps, Thomson Vision Chart, Autorefractor and vision testing equipment I use at the hospital.
