Professional profile

I am a consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at the Univeristy Hospital Wales and an Honorary Clinical Lecturer at Cardiff University.

I did my basic medical training in Calcutta in India. I then trained in Ophthalmology in the Oxford deanery at Stoke Mandeville Hospital and Princess Margaret Hospital, Swindon. 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.
