As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Professional profile

My clinical practice encompass general eye conditions however, I specialise in cataract and vitreoretinal surgery and I regularly engage in teaching and training of junior surgeons.

I decided that I would study ophthalmology early in my medical student training and spent some time engaged in genetic research into retinoblastoma at The Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Boston, USA as a medical student.

I qualified in Medicine at The Royal London Hospital and undertook training posts in neurosurgery and plastic surgery. I then completed my ophthalmic training at Portsmouth and in London at St Thomas' Hospital, Moorfields Eye Hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen's Square.

I was appointed to the post of Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at Queen Alexandra Hospital in June 1995.

I am also a visiting fellow for the charities: Lifeline Express, in China and the World Sight Foundation. I undertake general ophthalmology and vitreoretinal outpatient clinics and surgery as well as laser and cataract operating lists.
