Professional profile

Availability - Shawfair: Tuesday 2pm-4pm.

My undergraduate training was at Manchester University, qualifying with MB ChB in 1989. After working in a variety of medical specialities in MRCP(UK) in 1992, I moved north to Glasgow to commence a rotation in ophthalmology. I spent seven years training in ophthalmic units around the west of Scotland achieving FRCOphth in 1995. I have undergone specialist fellowship training in vitreoretinal surgery both in Glasgow and Manchester. My current practice includes all general ophthalmic problems with special surgical interests in cataract extraction (small incision and complex) and vitreoretinal procedures.
