I have been a Consultant Ophthalmologist at the Lincoln County Hospital in Lincoln since 1st December 2007.
My current role is that of a general ophthalmologist with a specialist interest in oculoplastic surgery. I also have an interest in neuro-ophthalmology, graduating with an MD from the University of Leicester in 2009. My thesis investigated ‘Vertical Optokinetic Nystagmus in Adults with and without Parkinson's Disease’
Whilst a trainee I took a year out of the training program to work as a research registrar carrying out research into vertical OKN. I graduated with my MD in July 2009.
Before studying medicine I graduated with an Optometry degree from the University of Bradford, UK and worked as an optometrist in the North of England for two years. Following this I studied medicine at the University of Leicester. I subsequently worked as house officer (HO) for 6 months in the ENT and vascular surgery department and for 6 months in general medicine and the coronary care unit Leicester. As a senior house officer (SHO) I worked as an anatomy demonstrator for 6 months and then subsequently I worked in the A&E, urology and general surgery departments as a surgical trainee. I started my ophthalmology training in 1999.
I have given presentations to numerous international ophthalmology meetings including the USA, Sweden, Switzerland and India
