Treatment restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

As part of our longstanding relationship, we are proud to be dedicating our resources to the NHS at this important time. As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Professional profile

The mainstay of my clinical practice at Spire Cheshire Hospital is general ophthalmology, in particular assessment and treatment of cataracts, glaucoma and retinal conditions, such as macular degeneration and diabetes.

An expanding area is an extension of the NHS 'special interest' that I have developed: oculoplastic, orbital and lacrimal surgery. Oculoplastics is the treatment of eyelid and eyebrow conditions, such as ptosis (droopy eyelids), lid retraction (thyroid orbitopathy) in/out turning of the lids and periocular tumours.

A further facet of this is cosmetic lid surgery. Lacrimal surgery is the treatment of tear over-production or tear drainage disorders in children and adults. Orbital surgery is the evaluation and treatment of conditions affecting the orbital contents around the eye, namely thyroid orbitopathy, inflammation, trauma and tumours.

Clinical Interests

Ptosis, eyelid malpositions (en/ectropion), lid tumours, facial palsy, aesthetic lid surgery, lacrimal surgery and thyroid orbitopathy.
