Mr Daniel Dragnev
I have more than 10 years experience in ophthalmology. I have trained in Bulgaria, Germany and the UK.
I have expertise in cataract surgery under local or topical (only drops) anaesthesia. I have a special interest in the medical and surgical management of glaucoma- trabeculectomy, non-penetrating glaucoma surgery (viscocanalostomy), XEN implant. I perform combined glaucoma and cataract surgery.
I am Diabetic Retinopathy Lead at St Helens hospital and manage medical retina conditions as well (Age-related macular degeneration, Central retinal vein occlusion, Branch retinal vein occlusion). My regular practice involves anti-VEGF (Lucentis, Eylea), steroid implants (Ozurdex) and micropulse laser therapy.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Daniel Dragnev at Spire include:
