BM, BSc (Hons), FRCOphth
I am a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital Foundation Trust. I completed comprehensive ophthalmology residency training on the prestigious North Thames and Moorfields Eye Hospital rotation, giving me the opportunity to spend a few years working in Europe's largest Eye Hospital and gain a vast amount of experience in all fields of ophthalmology, including complex cataract surgery.
Following this, I pursued my interest in medical retina with a fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital during which I led the largest modern day clinical trial addressing diabetic retinopathy and driving vision standards. This has been recently published in the JAMA Ophthalmology journal. Further information is available at http://www.2eyedocs.co.uk
My main areas of interest are retinal conditions, general ophthalmology and cataract surgery. Patient information leaflets available on www.2eyedocs.co.uk
I have performed over 1000 of each of the listed procedures: intravitreal injections, yag laser capsulotomyies, retinal laser procedures, cataract surgeries.
In addition to my clinical work, I am Clinical Lead of the Retinal Vascular Occlusion Service at the Luton and Dunstable Foundation NHS Trust and Teaching Hospital. I am also actively involved in training and education and am an Educational Supervisor for ophthalmology trainee doctors.
I have over 20 peer-reviewed publications and have presented my work at both national and international conferences.
I feel very passionately about my work and am committed to continuing professional development and working in partnership with my patients to provide them with what I feel is the best possible care.
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.
