Early surgical positions at St Bartholomew’s and St Georges Hospitals in London were followed by higher surgical training at Southampton University Eye Unit leading to inclusion on the specialist register of Ophthalmic Surgeons. Supported by the Medical Research Council, he then pursued research leading to a PhD thesis on ocular surface disease.
