I have been a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon for over 15 years. I am currently the clinical lead for ophthalmology at Arrowe Park Hospital. I am the lead for the glaucoma, neuro ophthalmology and ophthalmic stroke service at Arrowe Park Hospital.

I have an interest in cataract surgery, achieving the best possible outcome for all patients, providing patients with a choice of lenses to suit their individual requirements.

I lead the glaucoma service and have adopted modern glaucoma surgical techniques, including the introduction of the latest stent treatment for glaucoma which can be carried out under local anaesthetic.
