Mr Rohit Jolly
Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon
BSc (Hons), MBBS, FRCOphth
I am a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon and over the past nine years developed a passion and expertise in the medical and surgical management of children with eye complaints as well as adults, in particular cataracts, squints and neuro ophthalmology.
I perform small incision cataract surgery for routine and complex cases and offer patients the option of premium intraocular lenses to help them adapt to their relevant lifestyles, aiming to achieve spectacle independence. In my paediatric practice I undertake squint surgery for children of all ages, perform procedures to help relieve watery eyes in the very young and also simple lid and brow lesion removal.
To date I have performed in excess of 2,000 surgical procedures and as well as a surgical approach to care I am a firm believer in medical management for some cases. I use Botulinum toxin to help manage squints in children and adults as well as the treatment of twitching eyelids (myokymia and blepharospasm) and the face (hemifacial spasm).
Squint surgery has developed over the years and it is important to adapt to these changes. I thus offer fornix based small incision surgery as well as the option of surgery with adjustable sutures so as to provide more predictable post operative results. In my adult practice I also offer simple led lesion removal, chalazion incision and drainage and YAG capsulotomy for posterior capsular opacfication.
I graduated from University College London and as well as my medical degree received a First with honours in Neurosciences and laid the foundation for my interest in neuro and motility related problems with Ophthalmology.
I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and a member of the British and Irish Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus Association, and British Emergency Eyecare Society.
My role as Clinical Lead for the emergency eye services at the Royal Free entails providing and coordinating care across the North Central London network to ensure that patients are treated safely and in a timely manner and colleagues are supported.
I have a passion for teaching, and as well as being a College Tutor I am an active trainer of junior surgeons and continuously receive positive feedback from my colleagues about the impact I have on their development as clinicians. I am frequently involved in the education of clinicians in primary care as well as those within the hospital as I am a firm believer that knowledge is power and by empowering colleagues, it helps to expand the workforce available to look after patients.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Rohit Jolly at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Bushey Hospital.
Royal Free NHS London Trust and provide further services at the Whittington hospital and University College London Hospital.
I am very much a family man. When away from work I spend as much time as possible with my children and wife, and enjoy long walks in the outdoors. I am passionate about cooking, love cricket, and am a firm believer in meditation and yoga.
