About me

I completed my basic medical qualification (MBBS) from Rawalpindi Medical College (University of Health Sciences) Pakistan in 2005.This was complimented by two years of Foundation training in north-east England and a year of work in cardiothoracic surgery in Sheffield, where I passed the MRCSEd (General Surgery) examination. I then completed seven years of specialist ophthalmic training on the south-west rotation (Devon and Cornwall), followed by a one year sub-specialty glaucoma fellowship in Exeter.

I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and hold memberships with the United Kingdom and Eire Glaucoma Society and the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons. I have published over 20 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals and present regularly at national and international meetings.

My clinical areas of expertise include diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of general and acute ophthalmic conditions. I specialise in the medical, laser and surgical treatment of Glaucoma (including minimally invasive glaucoma implants and aqueous shunt surgery), along with sutureless micro-incision cataract surgery.

My academic interests include using virtual reality simulation to investigate surgeon performance and the development of innovative surgical instruments to improve patient safety. I am also involved in teaching medical students as part of the faculty with the Peninsula School of Medicine and Dentistry, and regularly supervise trainee eye surgeons in my NHS practice.

Outside of work I am an aspiring author, keen reader, enthusiastic swimmer, like playing squash and enjoy exploring new walks in Dartmoor.
