Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr William S T Pollock at Spire include:
I have been a Consultant Ophthalmologist for 19 years, 17 years of which I was a full time consultant with an interest in vitreo-retinal and general ophthalmic surgery at Blackpool Victoria Hospital (BVH). At present, I run a weekly cataract clinic and cataract surgical theatre list at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. I no longer perform vitreo-retinal surgery, however I am happy to provide VR opinions.
I have extensive experience in cataract surgery, including premium lens implants (TECNIS Symfony® and Rayner Sulcoflex®). I perform laser treatments for post cataract capsule thickening: YAG capsulotomy, laser treatments for glaucoma: YAG and argon. Laser treatments for retinal disease, including for retinal tears, diabetes and vascular occlusions. I also perform temporary punctual plug insertion and permanent punctual occlusions for dry eyes as well as corrective lid surgeries for entropion or ectropion lid problems.
To date I have performed over 4,000 cataract procedures in both my NHS and private practices, as well as over 1,000 laser cases.

The son of a General Practitioner and and Optometrist and being married to a local GP, I have raised my family on the Fylde Coast, residing in "sunny St. Annes."
Rugby remains to be my passion, having represented my school and university's first XV team. I have sponsored Fylde Colts for three seasons with "Pollocks4eyes" emblazoned on the back of their rugby tops. These days skiing and cycling holidays help keep a few of the pounds off.Back to top
