Specialises in

I am an ophthalmic surgeon, based in Edinburgh, and offer cataract surgery which is usually (95+%) done under local anaesthesia using drops.

Over the 12 month period December 2019 to November 2020, I performed 195 cataract operations. My audited outcomes based upon all returned post op. refraction forms which comprised 55% (107/195) of all my surgery.

For visual outcomes: 96% (103/107) of patients have a best corrected (after specs) visual acuity of better or equal to 6/12 (benchmark figure 91% national cataract audit). The capsular rupture rate; the most commonly sited measurement of surgical dexterity over the past 12 months is 0% (0/195) (benchmark figure 1.1% national cataract audit).
