Professional profile

I have been a consultant ophthalmologist and vitreoretinal surgeon for 10 years and am an expert in treating complex eye conditions.

I offer state of the art cataract surgery, including correction of short and long sightedness with standard monofocal or premium multifocal IOL to help reduce the need for wearing glasses; treatment of previously complicated cataract surgery, including dropped nucleus, dislocated IOL, exchange of IOL; sutureless microincision vitrectomy surgery for treatment of retinal and macular diseases (macular hole, epiretinal membrane, vitreomacular traction, submacular haemorrhage due to AMD, diabetic retinopathy); and surgery for significant floaters and posterior vitreous detachment and laser treatment for opacified lens capsule. I have established service for treatment of submacular haemorrhages due to wet AMD and early treatment of endophthalmitis.

I have performed over 10,000 ocular surgeries, including those during charitable missions in developing countries. My success rates are above national average and I continuously strives to introduce the latest technology to achieve the best results for her patients. I will discuss all possible treatment options and ensure that patient receives the best possible care. 

My current research interests include minimally invasive treatment for retinal detachment and treatment of severely shortsighted eyes.

I received extensive training in two leading referral centres for complex ocular pathology - St Thomas' Hospital, London covering south east London and the Tennent Institute of Ophthalmology in Glasgow, covering east Glasgow and the west of Scotland.
