About me

I bring a wealth of experience to my patients, specialising in cataract removal , oculoplastics and general eye surgery. I am caring with a personable attitude towards my patients, providing excellent clinical care to all my clinics.

I am a Consultant Ophthalmic and Oculoplastic Surgeon at Moorfields Eye Hospital based at the Bedford Unit and am the Cataract Surgical Lead. I hold an honorary contract with the Luton and Dunstable Hospital and I draw regional referrals for watery eyes, eyelid, cancer and cosmetic work. I undertake intraocular refractive work with premium IOLs.

I have been continually auditing my results these show success rates equal to or better than internationally published data.

I am on the UK lead on the International Council of Ophthalmology’s Cataract Assessment Taskforce through which I have worked in developing cataract tools being adopted in many parts of the world.

I am the primary investigator in the International Simulation Study for virtual reality cataract surgical training.

I also head up several teams investigating novel technologies relating to eye surgery and have received grants for work on eyelid surgery, cataract surgery, general ophthalmology amongst others.

I am qualified in Medicine from Imperial College, London and underwent basic specialist training in Ophthalmology in the London and the East Anglia Regions before completing my higher specialist training at Moorfields Eye Hospital. I was awarded the Gold Medal as the most distinguished candidate for the clinical and surgical ophthalmic Fellowship Examination. During my undergraduate studies I was awarded the highest first class distinction for my BSc.

I then went on to undertake an extended subspeciality fellowship in oculoplastic and lacrimal surgery at Moorfields Eye Hospital focusing on conditions such as lid lumps, tumours and malpositions, watery eyes and lacrimal problems along with orbitofacial cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation. I have lectured widely both at national and international levels on peri-ocular facial plastics and cataract surgery.
