Mr Simon Rogers
BSc, MBBS, FRCOphth
I offer routine and complex micro-incisional cataract surgery as well as a full range of ophthalmic plastic surgical procedures. These include upper and lower blepharoplasty, ptosis correction, eyelid skin cancer excision and reconstruction, lacrimal disorders and orbital disease.
I have several publications in peer reviewed ophthalmology journals and have presented at national and international conferences.
I was educated at Christ's Hospital School, near Horsham in West Sussex. Following which, I studied medicine in London at St Mary's Hospital and graduated in 1999. I undertook my basic ophthalmic training in Taunton and Southampton and following this gained a place on the Wessex higher surgical training rotation.
In 2010 I completed my training and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and was included on the specialist register of Ophthalmic Surgeons. I have developed an interest in ophthalmic plastic surgery and have completed two fellowships in this subspecialty; one in the UK at Salisbury and Southampton hospitals and one at the Sydney Eye Hospital, Australia.
During my career I have also found time to perform charity work in Burma, as part of the Myanmar Eye Care Program.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Simon Rogers at Spire include:
Oculoplastic surgery, lacrimal disorders, eyelid surgery (skin cancer excision and reconstruction), ectropion/entropion, ptosis (drooping of eyelids), chalazion. facial palsy (management of eye complications), orbital/eye socket disease, thyroid eye disease, dry eye/ocular surface disease, blapharitis, blepharospasm, anti-wrinkle treatments.

I have always been a keen sportsman. I have played rugby for St Mary's Hospital, Sussex, English Universities and Winchester. During my fellowship year, whilst living in Sydney, Australia, I was introduced to ocean swimming and competed in many ocean swims; this included the famous Palm Beach Whale Beach swim on Sydney's northern beaches. After returning to the UK I have kept up my interest in open water swimming and have recently started competing in triathlons.
