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 and complex inherited retinal conditions.

I have particular interests in non-scarring laser treatment for diabetic retinopathy and Inherited retinal conditions.

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 four years at Moorfields fuelled my clinical and research interests.
