About me

Mr Vikas Chadha has been a Consultant in the West of Scotland since 2009 and is now a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at the Tennent Instutite of Ophthalmology at Gartnavel General Hospital.

He is an experienced cataract surgeon having performed over 3000 cataract surgeries. He rigorously audits his results and has found his success rate well above the UK national standards with an overall complication rate of less than 1 percent.

He is one of two Consultants responsible for delivering the Scottish Ocular Oncology Service that is centrally funded by the National Services Division, a division of National Services Scotland, a national NHS Board. This runs in conjunction with and complimentary to his tertiary referral oculoplastics service. His service also delivers general ophthalmology clinics and cataract operating lists.

Vikas is an examiner for the Royal College of Glasgow Fellowship examinations and a faculty member on the ChM Masters programme in Ophthalmology run by the University of Edinburgh and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. He also runs an annual ophthalmology course for General Practitioners at the Tennent Institute of Ophthalmology. He is an executive committee member of the British Oculoplastic Surgery Society (BOPSS) and successfully organised the annual BOPSS meetings in Edinburgh in 2010 and in Glasgow in 2016.

He has over 25 peer-reviewed publications in international journals, has co-authored book chapters and is regularly invited to review papers for many leading ophthalmology journals. He has been an invited speaker at a number of meetings including the Royal College of Ophthalmologists Congress, British Oculoplastic Surgery society Annual meeting and the Scottish Ophthalmological Club Meeting.
