As well as general ophthalmology, I have a sub specialty interest in diabetic eye disease, age related macular degeneration and vascular diseases of the eye. I have also set up regional and national, multidisciplinary clinics dealing with inherited retinal conditions and their systemic manifestations.
I am a past president and secretary of the Midland Ophthalmological Society and one of the founders and organisers of the international Pantheo/MOS conference held each year in Cyprus which delivers education and instruction to the local ophthalmic community.
In addition I have previously been actively involved with the Royal College of Ophthalmologists as undergraduate representative.
I am a recognised national and international speaker and have lectured and published extensively on retinal disorders including diabetic eye disease, retinal vascular occlusion and macular degeneration.
One of my main research interests is the role of social deprivation on visual loss in blinding medical retinal disorders and strategies for prevention and treatment.
To this end I have facilitated patient and public involvement by running low vision awareness days for the community and I am actively involved in a local eye charity.
Areas of interest
Medical Retina and Medical Glaucoma, including Age Related macular Degeneration, Diabetic Eye Disease and Retinovascular disorders.
