He works tirelessly to identify innovative new developments in macular degeneration, cataract surgery and vision correction technology, bringing major advancements in eye care from around the world.
Outside his working life, Shafiq spends as much time as possible with his wife, four children and one rather lazy labradoodle and a 'lively' Bichon Frise.
He has long held great interests in cosmology, evolutionary science and in the history of medical and scientific endeavours.
Shafiq also remains an avid traveller and hopes one day to circumnavigate the world but probably not until he has hung up his operating gloves!
