"The Spire Eye Centre at Little Aston has a great reputation for having top facilities, hence being able to provide top ophthalmic care for patients."
I am an experienced Consultant Ophthalmologist with a demonstrated history of working in the hospital and health care industry. I am skilled in cataract surgery, Laser (SMILE) surgery, corneal and refractive surgery.
I specialise in refractive lens exchange and premium cataract surgery (with trifocals to eliminate the need for glasses, even in the absence of cataract), laser eye surgery (LASIK, LASEK, SMILE, PTK), PRESBYOND - laser presbyopic solution, Implantable contact lens (ICL) for high prescriptions and corneal transplantation including endothelial (DSAEK). I also specialise in the surgical management of keratoconus including collagen cross-linking, Intacs and penetrating keratoplasties, glaucoma management including surgical trabeculectomies and minor lid procedures (cysts and chalazion).
During my fellowship training, I specialised in cornea, cataract and glaucoma during at The Royal Perth Hospital, Australia, between January 2007 and January 2008. During the fellowship, I gained considerable experience in premium cataract surgery, corneal transplantation, ocular surface disease management, refractive laser surgery, trabeculectomies and glaucoma tube surgery. I also undertook an honorary fellowship in the Moorfield Eye Hospital Cornea Department under Professor John Dart before joining Royal Derby Hospital.
