I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Cathedral Eye Clinic .
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.
Professor Johnny Moore is a well respected Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, specializing in ocular surface reconstruction, laser refractive surgery, cataract and other intra-ocular eye surgery and has personally completed over 5,000 treatments.
In addition to performing surgery, Professor Moore is actively involved in teaching, training and helping to run an online cataract and refractive MSc course through the University of Ulster. This course is designed to train both surgeons, optometrists, laser technicians and others involved in this area from around the world in the intricacies of laser and refractive cataract surgery.
Johnny has spent time training and researching in various parts of the world including Australia where he trained in ocular surface reconstruction. He also carried out research for his PhD thesis in Harvard Medical School, Boston and trained under Professor Dimitri Azar.
Johnny helped to found the Ocular Surface Research Group in the University of Ulster, Coleraine and continues to be actively involved in this research both clinically and through the laboratory, regularly publishing in international journals and successfully acquiring grant funding for this work.
Currently Johnny is a Consultant Ophthalmologist and Clinical Director in the Cathedral Eye Clinic and a Consultant Ophthalmologist in the Mater Hospital, Belfast.

Currently my principal research interests are in the development of corneal gene therapy this is in conjunction with University of Dundee and University of Ulster and with Professor Graziella Pellegrini, Modena.
I also have active clinical research in the field of multifocal IOL technology and laser refractive surgery, having recently developed a novel quality of vision questionnaire, which is again being further, refined for use with both laser and multifocal IOL patients.
I am married to Tara Moore and we have seven amazing kids who keep us busy when we are not working.
