Mr Raghavan Sampath

Consultant Ophthalmologist


Specialises in

I run a busy tertiary referral centre for lid, lacrimal and orbit surgery at Leicester Royal Infirmary and Spire Leicester Hospital. I trained at Manchester, Kings College Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital London.

I hold honorary contracts at various other hospitals such as Queens Medical Centre Nottingham, Milton Keynes and also a hospital in South India. I operate at these centres for complex pathology and for teaching purposes. I am one of the few dedicated eyelid surgeons in the country.

I am an internationally recognised trainer for the sub-speciality by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. My team continues to present research papers done under my supervision at international conferences in Europe, USA, Asia.
