Dr Conrad Schmoll
MBChB, MRCSEd, FRCOphth
I am an ophthalmic surgeon, based in Edinburgh, with a diverse practice comprising cataract surgery, adult general ophthalmology and an additional specialist interest in paediatric ophthalmology and children’s eye problems.
Having obtained my primary medical degree in South Africa, I moved to the UK in 2003 where I trained initially in general surgical specialties, before entering ophthalmic specialist training in Edinburgh, where I ultimately took up my NHS consultant post after becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists in 2014.
Being passionate about all aspects of ophthalmology, I particularly enjoy relating to patients and their families, providing high quality patient-centered care.
I perform small incision phacoemulsification cataract surgery and adult general ophthalmic consultations, while also delivering a busy regional specialist paediatric ophthalmic service at the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People, Edinburgh.
I participate actively in research, education and management activities at the Princess Alexandra Eye Pavilion in Edinburgh and am registered for private practice at Spire Shawfair Park Hospital.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Conrad Schmoll at Spire include:
Spire Edinburgh Hospitals Murrayfield and Shawfair Park is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
Consultant Ophthalmologist at Princess Alexandra Eye Pavilion, Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Edinburgh and St John’s Hospital, Livingston.
Away from work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children and recharge with time outdoors cycling and kitesurfing.
