Professional profile

I have been a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon for 10 years, and work at the Birmingham Children's Hospital, and the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. I specialise in all aspects of children's eye problems ranging from simple eyelid cysts to complex cases like eye cancer. I also have expertise in adult and childhood squints, and eyelid disorders in children.

I specialise in management of children's eye problems including squints, droopy eyelids, watery eyes, and adults with squints, double vision and neuro-ophthalmic problems. I undertake a wide range of surgical procedures, including squint surgery, ptosis surgery, tear duct (lacrimal) surgery.
