Overview

About me

I am a senior Consultant Ophthalmologist with specialist expertise in cataract surgery and medical retina conditions such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. I perform around 500 cataracts a year. I lead the medical retina service at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle upon Tyne. I am a Nationally recognised expert in this field being a member of the Royal College of Ophthalmologist's Council and Scientific Committee and a member of the Oxford Congress Council. I have attended Advisory boards for Bayer, Novartis, Allergan and Alimera Science.
At the Royal Victoria Infirmary I and my team operate on about 20 cataracts a week. At the Nuffield Health Hospital I use both toric and multifocal intraocular lenses if required.
My Private consultations are usually at the Nuffield where I have use of an OCT to accurately image the retina in addition to the full range of ophthalmic equipment expected. I also provide expert advice on lid conditions, glaucoma and a range of ophthalmic conditions.
Additional imaging can be organised at the Royal Victoria Infirmary if needed.
I am actively involved in clinical trials of potential new treatments and ways of managing conditions, currently on diabetic maculopathy, central serous retinopathy and macular degeneration.
