- Cataract Full Pathway provider
I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Spire Liverpool Hospital .
This package includes your appointments before and after surgery, as well as your surgery and mono-focal lenses. It means you won’t use up your out-patient benefit or receive any additional bills from your surgeon (or anaesthetist, if you need one) for eligible treatment.
Please call the Bupa Eye Care team to find out more about and to pre-authorise your treatment on 0345 600 7267.
I have been a Consultant Ophthalmologist since 2010 being the clinical lead for both Adult Strabismus (squint) and Neuro-Ophthalmology at St Paul's Eye Hospital, Liverpool.
Since 2013 I have also been appointed to help provide a Neuro-Ophthalmology service to work alongside the Walton Centre for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
Alongside my sub-specialty interests, I aim to provide high-class, high-volume cataract surgery.
Areas of interest
• Cataract surgery • Strabismus ('squint') • Neuro-ophthalmology
