"The Spire Eye Centre is a well organised unit providing comprehensive care to patients in a friendly atmosphere. The facilities are excellent and the consultants and nurses work together to deliver high quality care."
I have been a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon for over 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.
I am Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Birmingham, and teach medical students and residents. I also conduct tutorials for residents and medical students from the University of Oxford.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Manoj Parulekar at Spire include:
Paediatrics - ophthalmology
Squint correction in adults and children, droopy eyelid (ptosis) correction, surgery for watery eyes (tear duct procedures).
Spire Little Aston 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.
