Mr Balasubramanian Ramasamy

I specialise in retinal, vitreoretinal and cataract surgery. I provide a full range of general ophthalmic services with a special interest in the management of patients with cataracts, glaucoma and retinal diseases including diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment and macular holes. I have extensive experience and training in ophthalmology which spans from Chennai, India through to Liverpool, UK. I completed this with intensive surgical training in retinal surgery at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
