Mr David Farnworth
MB, BS (London), MRCP (UK), FRCOphth
I lead a specialist medical retina clinic at the Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, but the majority of my workload remains phakoemulsification cataract surgery and the management of glaucoma in my general ophthalmic clinics.
I qualified from St George's Hospital, London in 1989, where I specialised in general medicine. I then received my MRCP and completed my general ophthalmic training in Leicester, Cardiff and London. From 1998 to 2000 I was a clinical research fellow at Moorfields Eye Hospital. I developed a specialist interest in the treatment of diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration - age related.
I have a special interest in medical retina disease. After a clinical research fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital 1998 to 2000, I developed an interest in the treatment of diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration.
Spire Portsmouth 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.
Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth.
When I get the time I enjoy sports - tennis, cricket, golf, hill walking and water colour painting. I am married to a GP who works as a clinical assistant in dermatology and have two children.
