Professional profile

I am a Consultant Ophthalmologist with expertise in medical retina and cataract surgery. After completing my Ophthalmology training in Yorkshire I undertook advanced Fellowship training in cataract surgery, retinal disease and uveitis at St James’s hospital, Addenbrooke’s and Moorfields Eye Hospital. Having led the medical retina service at Peterborough hospital for three years, I have now settled in Cambridge and hold a substantive consultant post at Addenbrooke’s hospital.

I primarily care for patients with age-related macula degeneration, diabetic eye disease, retinal vein occlusion, inherited retinal disorders and other general retinal conditions using the most up-to-date treatments. I regularly perform intravitreal injections (Lucentis / Eylea / Avastin / Ozurdex / Illuvien) and laser treatment. I am the lead for laser simulation training in East Anglia, having developed the region’s first laser simulation training course.

I perform small incision cataract surgery and have extensive experience in operating on complex cases and in patients with underlying retinal diseases. I train on the international Microsurgical skills course for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists after being elected in 2015.

I was previously a Royal College of Ophthalmologists Regional Tutor and delivered training and assessment of Ophthalmologists on the East of England Specialist rotation. I continue to teach specialist trainees at Addenbrooke’s whilst providing advanced fellowship training in Medical Retina.

I am the regional laser simulation lead and set up the regional first and only laser simulation course. I oversee the cataract surgical simulator at Addenbrooke's hospital.
