Ms Cornelia Poitelea
I am a consultant Ophthalmologist who treats conditions such as cataract and post cataract conditions, eyelids and lacrimal diseases (including eyelids turning inwards or outwards, skin cancers, watery eyes, droopy eyelids, excess eyelid skin removal) and glaucoma (optic nerve damage due to high pressure in the eye).
I completed comprehensive training in Ophthalmology in London and South East of England and have worked with worldwide known ophthalmologists. I pursued further advanced training in Oculoplastic and Lacrimal Surgery at Moorfields Eye Hospital, followed by a second fellowship at Queen Victoria Hospital.
In 2014 I was appointed as a full time Consultant Ophthalmologist by the Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust where I am the oculoplastics sub-specialist lead. I am passionate about teaching and currently oversee the junior doctors training in my position of College Tutor. I attend and present at national and international meetings.
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at The Montefiore Hospital.

I believe in a healthy work/life balance and enjoy spending valuable time with my family. I have a long list of things I enjoy including travelling, reading and understanding more about human behaviour and interactions.
