Professional profile

I started my training in ophthalmology 17 years ago in India. After obtaining postgraduate qualifications from the University of Calcutta, I was appointed as a fellow in medical retina and inherited eye disease at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London. The experience gained, and research conducted during my four years at Moorfields fuelled my clinical interest in retinal disorders. I spent another four years, training at Oxford John Radcliffe Hospital as a registrar and a fellow. Finally, I joined Leeds Teaching Hospital in 2016 as a medical retina consultant with specialist interest in genetics.

I specialise in: • Micro-incision cataract surgery (phacoemulsification) • Complex cataract surgery in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patients • Complex Cataract surgery in diabetic patients • AMD and diabetic retinopathy management • LASER treatment for diabetic retinopathy and maculopathy • Management of other retinal conditions like vein occlusion and vitreo-macular traction • Complex inherited retinal conditions

I have particular interests in: • Non-scarring laser treatment for diabetic retinopathy • Inherited retinal conditions
