I am a Medical retina consultant with specialist expertise in retinal disorders like age-related macular degeneration and diabetes. I am an expert in cataract surgery in patients with these conditions. I have specialist knowledge on non-scarring lasers for diabetes. I have trained as a fellow in Medical retina and inherited eye disease at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London from where I obtained wide knowledge on all retinal disorders. The experience gained, and research conducted during my 4 years at Moorfields fuelled my clinical and research interests. I spent another 4 years, training at Oxford John Radcliffe Hospital as a registrar and a fellow. I also work as a Medical Retina consultant at St James’s University Hospital since 2016.
