About me

Award-Winning, Substantive Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, specialising in Modern Cataract Surgery and Glaucoma Therapy, as well as all General Eye Conditions.

I have completed comprehensive training at The Royal United Hospital in Bath, The Prince Charles Eye Unit in Windsor and The Royal Surrey County Hospital (RSCH) in Guildford (2007-2012). I received further sub-specialty training at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and the world-renowned Moorfields Eye Hospital in London (2012-2015). I also completed a fellowship in MIGS at RSCH (2016-2017).

I regularly perform Small-Incision Phacoemulsification (>33-40 operations per week) both routine and advanced in near-sighted and short-sighted eyes with small pupils, angle closure, narrow chambers, and co-existing glaucoma.

In 2019, I humbly received Level 2 Clinical Excellence Award for Services in Ophthalmology by The East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust (ESNEFT).

Areas of interest

I perform high-volume Cataract Surgery, Moorfields Safe-Surgery-System Trabeculectomy and Aqueous Shunt (Tube) Implants with special interest in Lasers for Glaucoma (Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty, Argon Laser Peripheral Iridoplasty and YAG Laser Peripheral Iridotomy) and Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS).
I regularly offer combined cataract-glaucoma procedures with micro-stents to relieve the burden of glaucoma eye-drops.
I performed the first ever XEN45 Glaucoma sub-conjunctival micro-stent implantation at Essex County Hospital (15.6.2016@ECH), BAERVELDT Glaucoma Tube implantation (19.4.2017@ECH), CYPASS Glaucoma supra-ciliary micro-stent implantation (22.11.2017@ECH), and i-Stent G2 Glaucoma trans-trabecular micro-stent implantation (6.12.2017@ECH).

I serve as Principal Investigator for major Glaucoma Research Studies, including the National East Anglian POEM Study, International XEN45 in Angle Closure Multi-Centre Study and TRITON Bimatoprost Slow-Release implant Trials.
