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.

I am a consultant eye surgeon with over 30 years' experience in Ophthalmology providing excellent comprehensive general ophthalmic service for all aspects of eye diseases. My areas of special interest include bespoke cataract surgery and all eyelid problems (including droopy eyelid, in turning or out turning eyelid, lumps and bumps, cancer, dry eyes, watery bags and blepharitis).

My higher surgical training was in the prestigious Tennent Institute of Ophthalmology in Glasgow followed by an advanced subspecialty training in Oculoplastic surgery in Maidstone Hospital, Kent.
