Virtual consultations:

I joined the Cardiff eye unit at the Heath hospital in 2009 after a fellowship at the prestigious Vancouver orbital clinic where I learned many new techniques including endonasal lacrimal surgery. My clinics are only open to over 18s.

After qualifying from St Andrews and Manchester in 1999, I undertook my ophthalmology training in Glasgow and Newcastle. I am a competent cataract surgeon and am also happy treating all common eyelid complaints such as ptosis, ectropion, entropion, eyelid bags and blepharospasm. I see many patients with dry and watery eyes and also more complex orbital problems, especially those with thyroid eye disease.

I am passionate about world blindness, running an eye project with the Samburu people in Kenya. I am also an international authority on high altitude eye problems and sporting eye injuries, having published and lectured widely in this area; I collected the highest ever eye data on Mount Everest.

My research achievements have led to a number of awards including the Keeler scholarship, the Lachlan McNeill scholarship, the Pfizer ophthalmology medal for Scotland and a Royal Society of Medicine travel award. I am on a wilderness medical training faculty, currently leading a national ocular trauma study and I am part of international research into both thyroid eye disease and endonasal lacrimal surgery.
