Professional profile

I am a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon and Director of the Glaucoma service at the prestigious Birmingham and Midland Eye Centre (a tertiary referral centre). I have been a consultant for 7 years and have huge experience in routine and complicated cataract surgery as well as the diagnosis and management of all forms of glaucoma. I am an international leader in the field of Glaucoma surgery with a particular interest in minimally invasive glaucoma surgery. I also have a interest in complex anterior segment surgery including iris reconstruction and intra-ocular lens complications.

I have a particular interest in angle closure glaucoma, complex cataract surgery, cataract surgery in glaucoma patients, complex trabeculectomy, aqueous shunt procedures and in minimally invasive (key hole) glaucoma operations. I am a leader in MIGS (minimally invasive glaucoma surgery), I was the first surgeon in the UK to use the Hydrus Schlemm’s canal stent to lower eye pressure and have the largest series in the world of istent procedures in complex glaucoma patients. I have 5 year follow-up in some of these cases with excellent eye pressure control and maintenance of vision.

More recently I have gained signifcant experience in the use of the CYPASS stent, the XEN stent and canaloplasty/goniotomy surgery of schlemm's canal.

I specialise in: 1) The Diagnosis, Medical and Laser (SLT) management of all forms of glaucoma 2) Routine and complex cataract surgery uncluding the use of astigmatism correcting implants. 3) Iris reconstruction 4) Intra-ocular lens exchange and repositioning procedures. 5) Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery: Istent, Canaloplasty, Goniotomy, CYPASS, Xen. 6) Complex Glaucoma Surgery: Mitomycin augmented trabeculectomy and aqueous shunt implantation.

To date I have performed over 5,000 cataract procedures and over 1,000 glaucoma surgeries in my NHS and Private Practice.

I am the director of the Supra-regional Glaucoma service at the Birmingham and Midland Eye Centre. I am also the Co-director of the Birmingham Institute for Glaucoma Research based the Institute for Translational Medicine. In addition to my clinical work I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Birmingham and an advisor to NICE on interventional glaucoma procedures.
