About me

I am a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon and Clinical Lead for Ophthalmology at Buckinghamshire NHS Trust. The Ophthalmology department at BHT is one of the largest and best equipped departments in the country, providing the local population with comprehensive ophthalmic care.

I underwent postgraduate training in Ophthalmology in the Oxford Deanery. I have been extensively trained in all aspects of General Ophthalmology which culminated in an ASTO in Cornea and External Eye Diseases with
emphasis on the role of immune modulation in the management of Ocular Inflammatory Eye Diseases at some of the country’s leading centres for ophthalmic care, The Oxford Eye Hospital and The Western Eye Hospital, St. Mary’s NHS Trust, London. This was followed by a Fellowship in Cornea and External Eye Diseases at The
Western Eye Hospital, London and another Fellowship in Glaucoma at The Oxford Eye Hospital.

A lot of anterior segment pathology coexists with Glaucoma and I believe that my training has been unique, amalgamating subspecialist management of two very important groups of conditions. The bulk of my work and my main subspecialist work in the NHS now is with Glaucoma. I am very experienced and well versed in all aspects of care of the Glaucoma patient including medical management, lasers (SLT, ECP, Cyclodiode), penetrating drainage surgery and minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS). In addition, I have vast experience with other, important ophthalmic surgery including high volume, complex, micro-incision cataract surgery. The role of the glaucoma specialist therefore looks to be increasingly challenging with an ageing population and an increasing number of patients presenting with both glaucoma and cataract.

I have published in most subspecialties of ophthalmology and particularly on Glaucoma. Although my NHS practice mainly consists of Glaucoma and Cataracts, I also have a significant number of patients with general ophthalmology, ocular inflammatory (uveitis or iritis), lid disorders and some squints and I am happy to offer
advice on a similar cohort of patients in the private sector.
