Mr J Dominic Heath
MBBS, MRCP, FRCOphth
My practice includes all aspects of ophthalmology though I have a particular interest in childhood eye disorders, squint surgery and small incision day case cataract surgery. I have been a consultant ophthalmologist since 1998 and took up my present post at Brighton and Sussex University Hospital NHS Trust in 2008.
I specialise in Paediatric Ophthalmology, Squint and Neuro-ophthalmology. My surgical practice involves cataract surgery in infants, children and adults and I perform 400 operations per year, the vast majority in adults. Squint surgery in children and adults. Excision of lid lumps including dermoid cysts and chalazia. Probing and syringing of tears ducts in infants. My capsular rupture and endophthalmitis incidence/rate has been 0% in the 20 years I have been operating at Spire.
I trained at St Bartholomew's Hospital qualifying in 1987. I then underwent postgraduate training at St Mary's University College, The Royal Free, The National Hospital for Neurology and Moorfields Hospitals. I am a member of The Royal College of Physicians and a Fellow of The Royal College of Ophthalmology.
Spire Harpenden Hospital 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.
I have been a consultant since 1998. I am married with four children and live in St Albans.
