Professional profile

I qualified from Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ hospitals, in London with a further degree in Pharmacology from King’s College London. After training posts in Neurosurgery and Emergency Medicine, I undertook ophthalmic training at leading institutions in London including Moorfields Eye Hospital, St Thomas’ Hospital and the National Hospital for neurology and neurosurgery. During this period I was comprehensively trained in ophthalmology.

I subsequently completed two further sub specialist surgical retinal fellowships at Moorfields Eye Hospital and The Royal Victoria Eye & Ear Hospital in Melbourne; the largest eye hospital in Australia.

In my clinical practice, I am happy to help with all general ophthalmic conditions. I offer specialist treatment in cataract surgery, including multi-focal lenses. My sub-specialist area of interest is in diseases of the retina and provides comprehensive medical and surgical care for these. These include age related macular degeneration, complications of diabetes, retinal vein occlusions, retinal detachments, macular holes and epiretinal membranes. Managing these conditions include laser treatment, intravitreal injections and surgery. I have further interest in genetics eye diseases, and in particular connective tissue disorders affecting the eye.

I have received numerous awards for my medical and academic work. These have been awarded from Moorfields Eye Hospital, the European Society of Ophthalmology, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Royal College of Ophthalmologists and the Syme Medal (Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh). I have over 40 peer reviewed publications and have lectured across the world.

I am available for appointments at the Spire Wellesley Hospital on Tuesday afternoons.
