Specialises in

I am a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon in the NHS based in South Wales, with special expertise in cornea, cataract and refractive surgery. I hold full specialist registration with the General Medical Council.

I graduated with distinction from St George’s Hospital Medical School, University of London in 1995 and completed my ophthalmology training in London. Having trained in various of London’s prestigious teaching hospitals, I went on to complete three separate sub-specialty training fellowships in each of cornea surgery, refractive surgery, and medical ophthalmology / neuro-ophthalmology. I moved to South Wales in 2006 to take up my consultant position and have continuously strived to establish and develop new services for my patients since that time.

I maintain my enthusiasm for research and supervises trainee doctors undertaking research. I have published the results of my clinical research widely in the peer-reviewed literature and am a reviewer for many prestigious journals. I have presented my work to international conference audiences in Europe, Asia and the USA. I have also been an invited speaker at international conferences, where I share my experiences in the use of innovative technologies.

I am a Visiting Professor of Ophthalmology at the Medical Colleges of two international universities. I composed modules and taught postgraduate students on the MSc in Clinical Optometry at Cardiff University and am a provider of continuing education and training for optometrists.
