Mr Rohit Jolly

Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon

BSc (Hons), MBBS, FRCOphth

Specialises in

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 injections 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 opacification.

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 provide a service at Spire Bushey Hospital in my clinical sessions for the urgent review and management of eye emergencies and feel it is important that patients can access this care close to home and in a timely manner. 

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.
