Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Andrew Chung at Spire include:

I graduated from the Medical School in the University of Leeds in 1996. I have undertaken both the basic and advanced surgical training in ophthalmology in the Yorkshire region. I then developed my sub-speciality interests in Cornea and Oculoplastic (Eyelid) surgery by undertaking a super specialised fellowship programme at the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital & Leeds General Infirmary. I am particularly well qualified, having performed in excess of 5000 ophthalmic operations (including over 2500 small-incision sutureless cataract/lens surgery and 2000 eyelid surgery). While I have been trained to manage all general eye conditions, I specialise in a range of surgery.
Sutureless Cataract surgery (including advanced multi-focal and accommodative intra-ocular lens implantation). Corneal grafting (both full thickness and more advanced partial thickness lamellar grafting). Eyelid surgery for droopy or sagging eyelids, in-turning/out-turning eyelids, Dry eyes, Lacrimal (tear duct) surgery for watering eyes.
I have presented in excess of 25 paper in national and international academic meetings (including USA, Australia and Europe). Some of these have been published in prestigious peer-reviewed journals (including Ophthalmology, Eye and Archives of Ophthalmology).
I was the winner of the Best Academic Paper Presentation Prize at the North of England Ophthalmological Society Annual Meeting and the Yorkshire Regional Brian Harcourt Best Poster Presentation Prize in 2006 respectively.
