Prof David Broadway
MD, BSc(Hons), FRCOphth, DO(RCS)
I trained at St Thomas' Hospital, London, Moorfields Eye Hospital, London and Eye Care Centre, Vancouver, Canada. My Research (MD) was completed at the Institute of Ophthalmology (London) UK and my Specialist Fellowship at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.
I perform in the order of 750 surgical or laser procedures each year. My small-incision, no-stitch cataract surgery utilises state-of-the-art technology and is usually performed under topical anaesthetic. Pre-existing refractive errors (long-sightedness, short sightedness and astigmatism) are corrected at the time of cataract surgery and reduce the requirement for glasses following the operation. I offer standard or multi-focal intra-ocular lenses (the latter, which reduce the need for patients to wear reading glasses following cataract surgery). The surgical procedures for glaucoma that I offer include trabeculectomy, combined cataract and glaucoma filtration surgery (phako-trabeculectomy), drainage tube implantation, bleb revision, selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), cyclodiode laser ciliary body ablation and laser iridotomy.
Spire Norwich Hospital is only able to provide COVID-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
