I offer the Full Pathway cataract surgery package for Bupa customers ...more
I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Optegra Eye Hospital Manchester.
This package includes your appointments before and after surgery, as well as your surgery and mono-focal lenses. It means you won’t use up your out-patient benefit or receive any additional bills from your surgeon (or anaesthetist, if you need one) for eligible treatment.
Please call the Bupa Eye Care team to find out more about and to pre-authorise your treatment on 0345 600 7267.

I completed my medical degree in 1994 and then trained in Ophthalmology whilst working in St Paul’s Eye Unit in Liverpool. I subsequently specialised in Vitreo-Retinal surgery at Oxford Eye Hospital. I accepted my first consultant post in Oxford Eye Hospital. I then worked for a short period at Southampton University Hospital before accepting a substantive consultant post at the Countess of Chester Hospital in 2008. I was appointed to set up the Vitreo-Retinal Unit and the Medical Retina service which I successfully did in 2009.
