About me

Mr Rakesh Jayaswal is a consultant ophthalmologist specialising in cataract, refractive laser and lens surgery and corneal disease.

Graduating from Manchester University, Mr Jayaswal is a leading corneal specialist who is at the forefront of new, innovative techniques to treat many corneal conditions and deliver complex cataract and refractive laser and lens surgery.

He is a founding member and director of specialist eye clinic LaserVision, which offers the complete range of eye treatments tailored to each individual's lifestyle preferences. All LaserVision surgeons use the most advanced cutting-edge technology in the UK and are at the forefront of developing new techniques.

He was appointed in Portsmouth to lead and develop a specialised corneal service and is able to provide all current treatments and techniques in the management of corneal and external eye disease.

Mr Jayaswal offers routine and complex micro-incisional and femtosecond laser cataract surgery and combines this with the use of premium intraocular lenses. He also specialises in corneal surgery, including full-thickness and lamellar corneal transplantation, collagen cross-linking and laser refractive surgery including LASEK and LASIK.

He was the first surgeon in the UK to perform the groundbreaking new Sulcoflex DUET Lens Exchange at Spire Portsmouth Hospital in November 2018. The DUET procedure involves the removal of the natural lens as performed in traditional lens exchange and cataract surgery, but instead of one intra-ocular lens being inserted, two premium lenses are used to restore vision for all distances. This new trifocal multifocal lens technology ensures complete lifelong reversibility should the health of the eye change.

He is a fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, London and the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh, and a member of the American and European Society of Refractive Surgeons. He has several papers in peer review journals and has presented in over 30 national and international meetings over the years.
