Professor Ejaz Ansari
MBBCh, FRCOphth, MD
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 opthalmology 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.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Professor Ejaz Ansari at Spire include:
Spire Tunbridge Wells Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
