Spire Wellesley, Southend availability: Wednesday evenings 6pm - 9pm (alternate weeks). Spire Hartswood availability: Monday mornings.
I am a consultant ophthalmic surgeon at Spire Hartswood Hospital, Brentwood Essex and Spire Wellesley Hospital in Southend on Sea, Essex.
I am happy to see the full range of private ophthalmic referrals, although I have a particular interest and experience in cataract and glaucoma surgery and am a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons.
I qualified in 1985 after undertaking my general medical training at St Bartholomew's Hospital in London. I then completed my ophthalmic training at Southampton Eye Hospital, the Western Ophthalmic Hospital London (St Mary's Hospital) and the Birmingham Eye Hospital.
I also worked at Moorfields Eye Hospital where I undertook research into the early detection of glaucoma and completed my fellowship training in glaucoma and gained my MD.
I have performed in the region of 10,000 cataract procedures and have a wealth of surgical experience and expertise in this field including the use of multifocal lenses for spectacle independence and toric lenses for the treatment of astigmatism. I also have a wide experience of more complex cataract cases including trauma and glaucoma.
I am a fellowship trained specialist in glaucoma, keeping up to date with the latest trends in diagnosis and management of this very common condition. I have over 20 years experience in the medical and surgical treatment of glaucoma (both simple and complex cases) and in combined surgery for cataract with glaucoma.
