About us

I qualified in 1985 from Guy’s Hospital, London University and worked in Birmingham, Sheffield and Leeds before taking up a consultant post in York in 1996, specialising in general, paediatric ophthalmology and adult motility.

I have audited results on cataract surgery over many years, as well as various forms of strabismus surgery such as consecutive exotropia.

I have published 55 peer review papers, made 67 oral/poster presentations at scientific meetings, and given 86 lectures, in York, nationally and internationally.

I was head examiner for FRCOphth Part 2 2011-2016 and head examiner for Refraction certificate 2008 to 2011. I am currently the Chair of the examinations committee. A major commitment has been re-structuring the Laser and Refractive surgery examination.

I was a clinical tutor from 1996 to 2000 before being made Clinical Director, until 2004. I also sat on the paediatric ophthalmology sub-committee from 2005 to 2011.

Research interests include refraction accuracy, reading, maximising visual potential in cataract patients and on call. I am also interested in various models of healthcare delivery.
