Mr Bharat Kapoor
M.S Ophthalmology, FRCOphth
I am a Consultant Ophthalmologist at University Hospitals of Leicester and have over 15 years of experience in Ophthalmology providing clinical care for all emergency and general ophthalmic conditions. My private practice is based at Spire Leicester Hospital where I specialise in inflammatory diseases of the eye such as uveitis, scleritis, cataract surgery and medical retinal conditions.
I undertook my initial Ophthalmology training in India and then trained in Ophthalmology at the East Midlands Deanery. Following this I did a Fellowship in Uveitis and Medical Retina at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London. During this period, I was actively involved in teaching medical students, whilst pursuing research interests which include immunosuppression.
I am a co-lead for undergraduate Ophthalmology Training at Leicester Medical School and am also an examiner for the Fellowship Exam of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists.
I am extremely passionate about improving the delivery of eye care in the community. I have been very actively involved in training in-house optometrists in assessing cataract patients and streamlining various patient referral pathways to improve the quality of care and patient experience at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Bharat Kapoor at Spire include:
Spire Leicester 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.
