Professional profile

My undergraduate training took place at Cambridge University and St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, qualifying in 1989. Higher training in internal medicine led to the award of Membership of the Royal College of Physicians in 1993.

Training in ophthalmology commenced in 1993 with a first post at the Prince Charles Eye Unit, Windsor. Extensive experience in further training posts for each of the sub-divisions within ophthalmology led to the award of Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists in 1996 and full specialist accreditation in 2001.

I have also undertaken two advanced higher specialist training programmes in oculoplastic surgery at both Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham and Moorfield's Eye Hospital, London, and am a member of the British Oculoplastic Surgeons Society.

In 2002 I was appointed NHS Consultant Ophthalmologist and hold posts at both the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading and the Prince Charles Eye Unit, Windsor.

My ophthalmic practice is based at both the Spire Dunedin Hospital, Reading and the Spire Thames Valley Hospital, Wexham. From here I provide a Berkshire-wide service that includes the following treatments > Cataract surgery: micro-incision, sutureless phacoemulsification-technique surgery using state-of-the-art equipment. | Day case, no-needle, local anaesthesia surgery for faster recovery. | Eyelid, oculoplastic and lacrimal surgery. | All aspects of eyelid disorders, specialist cosmetic eyelid surgery, tear duct problems causing watering. | General ophthalmology: diagnosis and management of adult glaucoma, uncomfortable or painful eye, a change in eyesight or a change in the appearance of the eye where the underlying cause is unclear and needs looking into.


Clinical Interests


Refractive outcomes of cataract surgery; eyelid, lacrimal and orbital diseases
