- Cataract Full Pathway provider
I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Berkshire Independent Hospital, Spire Dunedin Hospital .
This package includes your appointments before and after surgery, as well as your surgery and mono-focal lenses. It means you won’t use up your out-patient benefit or receive any additional bills from your surgeon (or anaesthetist, if you need one) for eligible treatment.
Please call the Bupa Eye Care team to find out more about and to pre-authorise your treatment on 0345 600 7267.
Mr Constable trained at Cambridge and Oxford Universities before moving to Moorfields Eye Hospital for his higher specialist ophthalmic training, gaining comprehensive clinical and surgical experience in all of the major subspecialities within ophthalmology.
He spent two years as a research fellow in the Institute of Ophthalmology and the Glaucoma Unit of Moorfields Eye Hospital, as well as doing a clinical glaucoma fellowship at Moorfields, during which time he gained extensive experience into all aspects of the surgical and medical management of glaucoma.
In addition to his extensive glaucoma experience, he had a broad surgical training, including advanced phacoemulsification and refractive surgery techniques including extensive experience with multifocal and toric lens implants, neuro-ophthalmology and management of strabismus (squints).
As a consultant ophthalmologist at the Royal Berkshire Hospital he provides a broad general ophthalmic service, as well as running specialist clinics for the management of glaucoma and cataracts. He established and runs a daycase cataract service at Newbury hospital, using modern small incision daycase sutureless phacoemulsification cataract surgery, generally under local (topical) anaesthetic
