Miss Stephanie West

Consultant Ophthalmologist


Specialises in

I am a Consultant Ophthalmologist based at Southampton General Hospital since 2013.

After graduating from Southampton University Medical school I completed my specialist ophthalmology training in the highly regarded centres of Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham and The Bristol Eye Hospital.

Subsequently I undertook two years of subspecialty training in paediatric ophthalmology and strabismus including a prestigious fellowship at Sickkids, Toronto, for which I was awarded the JD Morin prize for best fellow. My second fellowship was at Moorfields Eye Hospital, where I gained extensive knowledge and training in treating children's eye diseases and squints.

I specialise in cataract surgery, children's eye disease, adult squints, double vision and complex oculomotility disorders.

I am currently Deputy Clinical Director for Ophthalmology at Southampton General Hospital and Lead the CESR article 14 Ophthalmology Training program.

In addition to my clinical work I also participate in advisory boards for the pharmaceutical industry on Femto cataract surgery and Treatment of Retinopathy of Prematurity.

I am also part of the interview panel for the specialist ophthalmology training program for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists.
