My higher surgical training was completed in Bath and Bristol Eye Hospital. I was a Lecturer in Ophthalmology at the University of Bristol. During this period I received substantial research grants and did basic research in immunological processes in the eye. I then trained as Medical Retina Fellow at Bristol Eye Hospital. Before my tenure appointment in Cardiff I was a Consultant at Bristol Eye Hospital.
I have expertise in the use of all three anti VEGF treatments and photodynamic therapy for macular degeneration. I have been involved in the clinical trials assessing these treatments. I have expertise in the use of monoclonal antibodies and other immunomodulators for all ocular inflammatory diseases. I have a special interest in cataract surgery and diabetic eye disease.
My practice includes general Ophthalmology, with a special interest in cataract surgery and medical Ophthalmology, including diabetes and age-related macular degeneration.
