"At Spire Norwich Hospital I am fortunate to work with very highly motivated and caring colleagues who ensure that every part of the patient journey is made as comfortable as possible."
I am a Consultant Ophthalmologist specialising in premium cataract surgery, and I also provide treatment for glaucoma, dry eyes, blepharitis, minor lid disorders and yag laser capsulotomy for capsular opacity following cataract surgery. I am able to offer full range of intra-ocular implants including monofocal, toric and multifocal lenses to suit each patient on a highly individualised basis.
At present I routinely perform nearly 1,500 cataract surgeries per year. I have been continuosly auditing my results and my success rates are equal to or better than nationally published data.
I have more than 30 years' experience in ophthalmology and I have performed more than 20,000 small incision phacoemulsification cataract procedures over a 25 year period, many of which are complex cases.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Siva Nagendran at Spire include:
