- Cataract Full Pathway provider
I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Shirley Oaks 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 am a Consultant Ophthalmologist at The Lister Hospital in London. After graduating with a first in Immunology at Imperial College, I qualified in Medicine in St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London. Specialising in inflammatory eye diseases and corneal and cataract surgery, I held a research registrar post at Oxford, before training in clinical ophthalmology in Bristol, Manchester and Harvard, USA. My PhD was on mechanisms of corneal transplant failure. I have worked in developing countries and also with ORBIS, the international flying eye hospital. In addition to general ophthalmology, I have developed a local and tertiary referral service for cornea, uveitis and inflammatory eye disease.
As well as being a practicing clinician and teacher, I also continue to carry out clinical research into the prevention of blindness.
