Mr Vernon Geh
Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon
BMedSci, BM BS, FRCOphth
I am a consultant ophthalmic surgeon at Spire Wellesley Hospital in Southend, Essex offering private eye surgery in our clean and comfortable private hospitals. I obtained my medical degree at Nottingham University Medical School. As a senior house officer training in ophthalmology, I held posts in Stoke-on-Trent, St James University Hospital, Leeds and Bradford Royal Infirmary. I completed my higher surgical training as a specialist registrar in London. Hospital attachments included St George University Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital. I spent a further two years training in my sub-specialty interest in paediatric ophthalmology and strabismus. This was undertaken as a clinical fellowship at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children and Moorfields Eye Hospital.
I am currently a consultant ophthalmic surgeon at Southend and Orsett hospitals where I provide a general ophthalmic and cataract service and a specialist service in paediatric ophthalmology and in paediatric and adult motility disorders including squints.
Spire Wellesley 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.
Fellow of Royal College of Ophthalmologists
My research interests are Developments in management of squints and the use of botulinum toxin motility disorders.
