My research and surgical achievements have won many prizes both nationally and internationally and most recently I have been nominated for the “Hospital Heroes” award.

I have always been interested in teaching. I lecture physicians in formal Ophthalmology courses, both nationally and internationally and train medical students and other doctors.
