Professor Ejaz Ansari

Consultant Ophthalmologist


My area of expertise includes modern micro-incision cataract surgery (MICS) by phacoemulsification and I have vast experience in specialised intraocular lens technology including accommodative and multifocal lenses.

Glaucoma treatments include trabeculectomy, glaucoma tube/valve implantation and laser treatments such as YAG, ALT, SLT and cyclodiode lasers. I have an international reputation for minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS).

I also provide a general ophthalmology service that covers the full breath of conditions in adults, children and also emergency work.

I am head of glaucoma services at the Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust. I trained extensively in the UK and abroad and have been a consultant since 2001. I completed a highly regarded glaucoma fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London and as International Glaucoma Association Fellow, I completed a higher degree (MD) in glaucoma.

I am also an examiner at the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and an adviser to Clinical Commissioning Groups for the provision of community based eye care schemes.
