About me

I specialised in ophthalmology in Edinburgh, Scotland. On completion of training as a comprehensive ophthalmologist, I spent an additional year studying and researching refractive surgery and corneal transplantation. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and an examiner of ophthalmologists-in-training at the Royal Colleges. I am also a member of the European & the United Kingdom and Ireland Societies of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the United Kingdom Medical Contact Lens and Ocular Surface Association, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, and the International Society of Refractive Surgery. I have published articles in peer-reviewed ophthalmology journals and am certified to use excimer laser for correction of refractive errors with latest technologies including wavefront guided and wavefront optimised treatments.

As consultant surgeon at the Royal Eye Infirmary in Plymouth since 1997, and Hon. Professor in the University of Plymouth since 2013, I regularly perform major eye operations including corneal transplants, surgery to treat cataracts, glaucoma, and eye trauma as well as laser treatment. My sub-specialty interest is in refractive and vision correction surgery, procedures which can reduce or eliminate the need for corrective lenses, providing patients with improved vision and a new sense of freedom. I performs laser assisted in situ keratomeleusis (LASIK), limbal relaxing incisions (LRI), astigmatic keratotomy (AK), lamellar keratoplasty (LK), endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK), excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), laser assisted epithelial keratomeleusis (LASEK), Epi-LASIK, collagen cross-linking and clear lens extraction with advanced aspheric and toric intra-ocular lens implantation.

My practice is devoted to enhancing and correcting your eyesight by using state-of-the-art technology that will result in better vision, and a better quality of life.
