  • Not Fee assured
  • Cataract Full Pathway provider

    I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Optegra Eye Hospital Yorkshire .

    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.

About me

Having qualified in 1992 as a doctor, I spent a year in Madagascar and founded the registered charity MOSS (Madagascan Organisation for Saving Sight. UK Reg 1047555). I then worked at Great Ormond Street Children's hospital before moving up to Yorkshire where I continued my higher surgical training. I became a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists in 1997. I have over 30 peer reviewed publications.
Since 2002 I have practiced as a Consultant at the Yorkshire Eye Hospital and St James's University Hospital where I run regional Cataract, Uveitis and Neuro-Ophthalmology clinics. I am also continuing to develop the link with Leeds University and Outreach hospitals in Madagascar.

Areas of interest
