About me

I started my ophthalmology training in Christian Medical College in India following which I had advanced surgical training in ophthalmology for Surgical and then Medical retina at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle upon Tyne.

I joined as a Consultant in ophthalmology with special interest in Retinal diseases at Darlington memorial Hospital in 2003. I set up the Macular diseases treatment unit at the Memorial Hospital in 2005. It treats around a thousand patients with various macular conditions every year.

I did my first cataract surgery in 1993 and have performed more than 5000 cataract surgeries. I started with intra capsular cataract surgery and have been part of the evolution of cataract surgery to the present state of Phacoemusification and laser cataract surgery. I have been performing multifocal lens with phacoemusification surgeries for the last 9 years.
