Mr Nicholas Beare

Consultant Ophthalmologist

MA, MB ChB, FRCOphth, MD

I am a member of The Liverpool Eye Clinic based at Spire Liverpool Hospital. I am a specialist in treating people with retinal conditions, including AMD, diabetic eye disease, uveitis and macular disease. I strive to ensure patients have an understanding of their condition and treatment options.

I have extensive experience in the assessment of ‘wet’ and ‘dry’ AMD, and in the treatment of wet AMD with injectable medicines such as Lucentis and Eylea. I am a member of the national NICE AMD guidelines committee. I also specialise in small-incision cataract surgery and the effect of medical conditions on the eye including inflammatory conditions (uveitis).

I qualified from Cambridge (pre-clinical studies) and Edinburgh Universities (clinical training). I undertook specialist training in ophthalmology at Bristol Eye Hospital and St Paul’s Eye Unit, Liverpool. In addition I worked in Malawi for three years culminating in a thesis on Malarial Retinopathy which was awarded an MD by the University of Liverpool. I continue research on malaria, and am also involved in international trials of new treatments for AMD, Uveitis and Diabetic Eye Disease.

My NHS practice is in the position of Consultant Ophthalmologist at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital where I am Lead Clinician for the AMD service. I also provide a general ophthalmology service, including cataract surgery. I strive to ensure patients have a full understanding of their condition and treatment options.
