Rajesh has chosen laser refractive, advanced modern cataract surgery and corneal surgery as his sub-specialist interests and to supplement his skills was privileged with 2 prestigious fellowships (working with some of the most respected surgeons in their fields and working with state of the art techniques in corneal and refractive surgery).
An accredited Consultant within the National Health Service, Rajesh has held a position of Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at Southend General Hospital since 1994. In this position he has become a national expert, performing high volume micro-incision cataract surgery and corneal transplantation surgery. He is referred and treats complex referrals from across Essex allowing him to continue to develop and contribute to the advancing technologies as they become available to best help his patients.
In addition to his NHS work, Rajesh manages a successful independent private practice. He first carried out laser vision correction 1993 and has been constantly updating his training to keep abreast with the latest in refractive technology. He has also designed and helped to develop some of the instruments now used in refractive surgery.
