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 Optimax Surgery Centre Newton Abbot .
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 am a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre in Somerset.
I hold subspecialty accreditation in Cataract, Eyelid and Glaucoma Surgery since training at Linköping
University in Sweden.
After training, I moved to the UK in 2005 to establish ophthalmic services at an independent practice in Somerset. Since 2008 I have helped establish three more centres in the South West, and my system for reducing waiting times for NHS Cataract patients has been implemented at other centres via the Care UK organisation.
I am a high volume cataract surgeon and have vast experience of small incision cataract surgery having performed more than 20,000 cataract procedures.
I enjoy a very high success rate and publish my results annually. More than 99% of my patients would recommend me for eye surgery.
I am a fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and in addition, hold membership within both the American and European Societies of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, along with the UK and Northern Ireland Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
I have published papers on the topic of cataract surgery and have given lectures on the latest cataract surgery techniques.
