About me

I am currently appointed as a Consulant Ophthalmologist at the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, leading the Glaucoma Service in Good Hope Hospital. My vision is to provide a top quality comprehensive glaucoma, cataract and general ophthalmology service, including laser and surgical management of complex glaucoma cases.

I have vast experience in the state of the art techiques of Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery, which offers effective treatment with the least possible risk.

I am particularly interested in the latest advances on modern small incision cataract surgery, correction of astigmatism and intraocular lens implants.

After my Specialist Training, I completed a two year Fellowship in Glaucoma in Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, during which I obtained advanced clinical and surgical skills in the field of glaucoma and cataract.

I have completed my specialist registrar training in Ophthalmology in the Northern Deanery, between Newcastle upon Tyne, Sunderland and Middlesbrough.

During this time I gained extensive training in general ophthalmology and developed a particular interest in glaucoma and cataract surgery through clinical experience, research and teaching. I have been awarded the Higher Degree of Doctor of Medicine from Newcastle University in 2007 for my research in the field of Glaucoma Genetics. I attend and present regularly at national and international meetings and have published a significant number of articles on peer reviewed journals as well as book chapters.
