About me

Mr Desai is a highly skilled Ophthalmic surgeon, having performed more than 20,000 operations and having taught over 30 trainees in cataract surgery.

He currently performs over 3,500 CATARACT and REFRACTIVE lens exchange procedures a year, helping people see without glasses and also helping restore vision.

According to the national ophthalmic database, he is one of the top 10 cataract surgeons in the country in terms of number of operations done per year and has one of the lowest complication rates in the country.

He specialises in REFRACTIVE Cataract /Lens surgery (ability to perform daily tasks without spectacles)

He is sought after for second opinion and is an expert in the field of CATARACT and Medical Retina.

Mr Desai has been trained by leading ophthalmologists including the past president of the royal college of Ophthalmologists and by world luminaries in cataract surgery.

He has also authored a best selling book on cataract surgery and has been an overall reviewer for the most popular ophthalmology textbook in the world.

He has an extremely high patient satisfaction result and very positive 360 degree feedback both from patients and colleagues.

Mr Desai believes in discussing all available options, their pros and cons thereby helping facilitate a tailor made solution for each individual. Nothing matters more to Mr Desai than being open, honest and transparent.

One of Mr Desai's happiest memories was a 93 year old lady on wheelchair who came in depressed and had her head down throughout the consultation, having lost interest in life. After the cataract operation, she said she could see as much as a 20 year old and regained interest in life.
