Professional profile

I am a medical retina consultant with specialist expertise in retinal disorders like age-related macular degeneration and diabetes. I am an expert in cataract surgery in patients with these conditions. I have specialist knowledge on non-scarring lasers for diabetes. I have trained as a fellow in medical retina and inherited eye disease at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London from where I obtained wide knowledge on all retinal disorders. The experience gained, and research conducted during my 4 years at Moorfields fuelled my clinical and research interests. I spent another 4 years, training at Oxford John Radcliffe Hospital as a registrar and a fellow. I also work as a medical retina consultant at St James’s University Hospital since 2016.

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
