Professional profile

I am a glaucoma specialist who is often asked to manage refractory cases of glaucoma and regularly perform a range of glaucoma procedures including trabeculectomy, glaucoma drainage device surgery, selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), cyclodiode laser and peripheral laser iridotomy. In addition to glaucoma, I am a very experienced cataract surgeon having performed several thousand cataract operations, many of which are complex cases. I am able to offer the full range of intraocular lens implants including monofocal, multifocal, toric and multifocal lenses to suit each patient on a highly individualised basis.

I am a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge and former Head of the Department of Ophthalmology. I graduated in Medicine from Trinity College, University of Oxford in 1998. Since then I have trained in several leading Ophthalmology units, including the Tennant Institute of Ophthalmology and the Oxford Eye Hospital. I completed three years of advanced fellowship training in Glaucoma both in Oxford and Cambridge, before being appointed as a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at Addenbrooke's Hospital in 2013.

I have a research interest in the genetics of complex eye diseases and have published widely throughout my career. My MRC-funded research at the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research led to landmark publications in the New England Journal of Medicine and Nature genetics and the award of a Doctorate in Medicine from the University of Oxford. I am committed to the teaching and training of future generations of healthcare professionals, including medical students, junior doctors and optometrists. I am involved in the Glaucoma Fellowship programme to specifically train future glaucoma specialists.

I am a trustee for the Cambridge Eye Trust which is committed to promoting ophthalmic research in Cambridge.
