I am a consultant with expertise in cataract surgery and the management of corneal problems. I am a surgical trainer for the East of England Deanery.

I specialise in cataract surgery including management of astigmatism with toric lenses. I also provide corneal treatments including crosslinking for keratoconus, pterygium removal, dry eye and blepharitis management, keratitis treatment and corneal transplant surgery. 

I have experience of laser-assisted cataract surgery. I am an expert in the latest Artificial Intelligence-based calculations for cataract surgery intra-ocular lens choice. 

I have performed over a thousand cataract surgeries, and have trained many junior surgeons in advanced techniques for safe and quality cataract surgery. I lead a weekly clinic in my NHS practice for patients with complex cataract problems. As well as comprehensive training in all parts of ophthalmology, I have had corneal subspecialty fellowship training at the prestigious London Moorfields Eye Hospital. I have also trained in India at the top-ranked corneal hospital, where I learnt cataract surgery techniques that are not typically available in the UK.
