Mrs Anshoo Choudhary
MBBS, MS (Ophth), MD, FRCOphth
I am a member of the Liverpool Eye Clinic based at the Penny Lane Clinic, Spire Liverpool. My initial medical and ophthalmology training was from the University of Rajasthan, India. Subsequent training in ophthalmology was at the Royal Liverpool Hospital, one of the centres pioneering in non-penetrating glaucoma surgery in the UK.
I was appointed as Consultant Ophthalmologist in 2010. I have been involved in both clinical and basic science research around understanding the pathogenesis of glaucoma and published and presented my work both nationally and internationally.
I specialise in Non-Penetrating Glaucoma Surgery (Viscocanalostomy/Deep Sclerectomy) and insertion of aqueous shunts (Ahmed Glaucoma Valve) for glaucoma. I also provide General ophthalmic care and small incision cataract surgery (phacoemulsification) including cataract surgery combined with glaucoma surgery.
I am also the lead clinician for glaucoma and provide a tertiary referral service for glaucoma for the North West.
