About me

I graduated from Glasgow University in 1975 and after obtaining my FRCS from Edinburgh, moved to Nottingham to complete my senior registrar training.I was first appointed a Consultant at Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor in 1985 and then moved as a Consultant to Luton in 1996 at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital. I left the NHS to become a full time private consultant in 2012.
I have huge experience having performed around 20,000 cataracts and about 300 lasers per annum. I am a general ophthalmologist but have developed a special interest in treating retinal disease, glaucoma and was one of the first people in the country to carry out laser refractive surgery at the Corneal Laser Centre in 1991/2.
With my general ophthalmology background I am able to take an overall view of an eye rather than small specific areas. This has considerble advantages when dealing with multiple problems such as an eye in a diabetic with retinal disease, secondary glaucoma and cataract.
