    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.

About me

I am a specialist cataract surgeon . I have over 16 years experience as a Consultant and perform over 500 cataract operations per year in adults and children. My published complication rates are extremely low and I maintain extremely high standards of care.

I also perform adult and childhood squint surgery to align the eyes.

Areas of interest

Cataract surgery, including multifocal and toric lenses.
I perform 500 cataract procedures per year in adults as well as about 30 in children .
I specialise in offering a customised approach to each patient, which includes a dicussion about the best vision type of lens for each person. Some people have astigmatism in their glasses, which is can be corrected with special implants which replace the cataract, called a toric lens implant. Some people are happy with distance vision without spectacles and wear reading glasses, and others wish to have implants which give a full range of focussing inside the eye, a bit like varifocal glasses. These implants are called trifocal or extended range vision lens implants.
