Professional profile

I qualified as an orthoptist in 1974 at the Birmingham & Midland Eye Hospital. I worked as a single handed orthoptist at Northwick Park Hospital, Harrow for twenty years. I then transferred to Central Middlesex Hospital where I am still working today. I run a clinic on the first Thursday in every month at Spire Harpenden Hospital. My referrals come from several consultants working in and out of the Hospital. I see adults and children who require treatment for squint, amblyopia (lazy eye), muscle palsies and convergence weakness.

I have a full set of fresnel stick on prisms which enables me to relieve a patient with diplopia (double vision) immediately.


Clinical Interests

Squint surgery

I am interested in any aspect of squint and amblyopia and am also experienced in treating patients with convergance insufficiency.

Personal Profile

My main hobby outside orthoptics is playing tennis; I am a captain of the Pinner Four tennis team. I live in Stanmore and have a busy private practice at home. I am also very involved with fund raising for Chai Cancer Care, a charity which raises money for people with cancer.
