I am a London based cataract and refractive surgeon with a special interest in presbyopia correction, laser cataract surgery and laser vision correction. I am on the GMC Specialist Register for Ophthalmology. I possess both the Fellowship of the Royal College of Ophthalmologist (FRCOpth) and also the Certificate in Laser & Refractive Surgery (CertLRS). After my Fellowship level subspecialty training in Cornea and Anterior Segment I was appointed to a Consultant post at the North East London NHS Treatment Centre in 2011. I am on the Medical Advisory Boards of several leading companies in the Cataract and Surgery field and also publish and present regularly at International Cataract and Refractive Surgery meetings.
Each individual is unique. They are entitled to tailor made and personalised assessment and treatment. I aim to ensure you are well informed and comfortable with your options.
I believe in an unrushed consultation. This involves a full understanding of your requirements and a thorough examination aided by the latest diagnostic equipment. Your personalised treatment plan will be formulated with your full involvement with the opportunity to ask questions at every stage of the process.
Laser Eye Surgery is used to correct a wide range of prescriptions, making it suitable for correcting mild to severe short sight, mild long sight, astigmatism and Presbyopia.
The surgery usually involves reshaping the cornea – the transparent layer covering the front of the eye. This is done using a type of laser known as an excimer laser. Different techniques are used to correct short sight (myopia), long sight (hyperopia), astigmatism and presbyopia (the need for reading glasses in later life)
Lens Surgery is perhaps the best alternative for people suffering from more severe prescriptions and is also performed to remove cataracts.
Lens replacement surgery corrects your refractive error through replacing your eye’s natural eye lens with an intraocular lens (IOL). By replacing the defective lens, you achieve clear vision and to a larger extent minimise dependency on reading glasses or bifocals.
