Mr Pavi Agrawal
Consultant in Ophthalmology
BSc (Hons), MB BChir (Cantab), FRCOphth
I am a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon and Honorary Assistant Professor at Nottingham University NHS Trust. My training has been in international centres of excellence. I graduated in medicine from The University of Cambridge and hold a first class honours degree in biochemistry. My residency training was in the Cambridge and the West Midlands where I developed a keen sub-specialist interest in cataract and glaucoma. Following this I completed a two-year medical and surgical glaucoma fellowship at the world prestigious Moorfields Eye Hospital, where I worked closely with two of the UK founding fathers of modern day glaucoma filtration surgery.
I have published over 20 peer reviewed scientific papers as well as written a book chapter in the world’s best selling glaucoma textbook for specialists. I have published my work in the most prestigious ophthalmology journals and presented my research work at major national and international ophthalmology conferences and I am regularly invited to speak, chair and moderate sessions at them. I am currently the undergraduate lead for ophthalmology and I have been appointed the title of Honorary Assistant Professor by the University of Nottingham School of Medicine, for my dedication to ophthalmic teaching and research.
I have performed several thousand cataract operations with a complication rate significantly lower than the national average. I am vastly experienced in glaucoma filtration surgery including augmented trabeculectomy and aqueous-shunt tube surgery, and have performed hundreds of laser treatments for glaucoma including selective laser trabeculoplasty and cyclodiode laser. I have trained several international fellows in these modern day techniques and am an examiner for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists as well as a trainer on the prestigious microsurgical surgical skills course.
My aim is to provide the highest standard of glaucoma therapy, cataract surgery and ophthalmic expertise in a caring and informed manner, as well as the most up-to-date and appropriate treatment for my patients.

In my free time I enjoy photography, cycling, gardening and playing table tennis. I’ve also recently taken up art classes with my wife and look forward to painting some of the beautiful Nottingham countryside.
