Graduated as Bachelor of Science in Pharmacology, with first-class honours, in 1976. I qualified in Medicine at King’s College Hospital, London, in 1979 and subsequently gained experience in Internal Medicine with award of Membership of the Royal College of Physicians in 1982. Postgraduate ophthalmic training was undertaken at King’s College Hospital, St Thomas Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital, with award of Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1985 and the Royal College of Ophthalmologists at its foundation in 1988. In 1990 the University of London granted me an MS doctorate for research on corneal endothelial changes after cataract surgery and, in 2004, awarded me the highest university degree with a Doctor of Science in Ophthalmology and Ophthalmic Surgery.
Appointed as consultant surgeon to Moorfields Eye Hospital in 1990, I have served as Director of the Adnexal Service, and I am currently the senior consultant specialising in orbital and lacrimal diseases. I lecture widely at national and international level, having presented a large number of named and guest lectures. In 2004, I was awarded the Lester Jones Anatomy Award of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (of which I am an honorary life fellow). In recognition of my research in the speciality, I have been elected Senior Research Fellow of the Biomedical Research Centre of the Institute of Ophthalmology with University College, London.
I am President for the European Society of Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, and for 8 years served as the British Council member of this group. I have also served as President of the British Oculo-Plastic Surgical Society.
