I am a consultant eye surgeon (ophthalmologist) with an interest in the anterior segment of the eye and cataract surgery, working at University Hospital Southampton NHS Trust since 2015.

I specialise in treating patients with cataract, refractive errors (short-sightedness, long-sightedness, astigmatism, need for reading glasses), keratoconus and corneal dystrophies, such as Fuchs endothelial dystrophy.
