About me

Mr. David O'Brart has been a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon in private practice and at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust in London since 1996. The Guy's and St Thomas' group contain one of the world's leading medical schools and the Ophthalmology Department has an excellent reputation both in the UK and internationally. Mr O'Brart was the director of Glaucoma and Corneal Laser and Refractive Surgery within this department from 1996 to 2006 and has now moved to become the director of Refractive, Cornea and Anterior Segment Surgery.
Following his qualification as an Ophthalmic Surgeon in 1990, he trained in corneal and small-incision cataract surgery. He spent two years at the United Medical and Dental Schools, University of London, investigating the role of Excimer Laser Refractive and Corneal surgery. This research led to the completion of a Doctorate in Medicine. Upon completion of his ophthalmic surgical training at St. Thomas' Hospital, London and Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, he undertook a fellowship with Professor Weinreb at the internationally renowned Shiley Eye centre in San Diego, California, where he studied advanced techniques in Glaucoma.
