- Cataract Full Pathway provider
I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Ramsay Winfield Hospital, Tetbury 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.
I am the Royal College of Ophthalmologists Surgical Skills Faculty Lead - in this role I am responsible for the surgical training courses run by the Royal College.
My cataract surgery information website, cataractsurgeryinfo.com, is the only video based cataract surgery website. The videos explain each step of the journey from initial consultation, to the day of surgery and eventual discharge. There are also videos explaining the pros and cons of the different types of intraocular lenses.
I have also created the patient information website SquintClinic.com which is the most popular patient information website in the world for patients with strabismus.
Areas of interest
Cataract surgery; including Toric lenses to correct astigmatism, Extended Depth of Focus lenses and Multifocal lenses.
The anaesthetist I work with also offers a sedation service for patients who are nervous about the prospect of having surgery under local anaesthesia.
