I offer the Full Pathway cataract surgery package for Bupa customers ...more
I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at BMI Shirley Oaks 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 first trained in Psychology at the University of London, and later qualified with an honors degree in Medicine from the Royal Free Hospital, London. I went on to receive my specialist ophthalmology training at Moor Fields Eye Hospital, in the North Thames rotation from 1992-2001. Following on from this, I obtained a fellowship in retina conditions, at the Moorfields Eye Hospital and was appointment a consultant eye surgeon at Croydon University Hospital shortly after, in 2002.
Aided by my degree in Psychology, I am aware of the different emotions patients needing surgery and other treatments for eye conditions may experience. My knowledge of psychology enables me to provide a tailored treatment plan with the correct support for each patient. I am now very accustomed to treating anxious patients who need surgery or laser. My aim is to provide each patient with as much clear and relevant, patient-friendly information as possible for their condition.
