Professional profile

I have been a Consultant Ophthalmologist for 19 years, 17 years of which I was a full-time Consultant with an interest in Vitreo-retinal and General Ophthalmic surgery at Blackpool Victoria Hospital (BVH). At present I run a weekly cataract clinic and cataract surgical theatre list at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. I no longer perform Vitreo-retinal surgery, however I am happy to provide VR opinions.

I have extensive experience in cataract surgery, including premium lens implants (Tecnis Sympony and Rayner Sulcoflex). I perform laser treatments for post cataract capsule thickening: YAG capsulotomy, laser treatments for glaucoma: YAG and argon. Laser treatments for retinal disease, including for retinal tears, diabetes and vascular occlusions. I also perform temporary punctual plug insertion and permanent punctual occlusions for dry eyes as well as corrective lid surgeries for entropion or ectropion lid problems.

To date I have performed over 4000 cataract procedures in both my NHS and private practices, as well as over 1000 laser cases.

Personal Profile

The son of a General Practitioner and and Optometrist and being married to a local GP, I have raised my family on the Fylde Coast, residing in "sunny St. Annes".

Rugby remains to be my passion, having represented my school and university 1st XV team. I have sponsored Fylde Colts for three seasons with "Pollocks4eyes" emblazoned on the back of their rugby tops. These days skiing and cycling holidays help keep a few of the pounds off.
