I bring a wealth of experience to my patients, specialising in cataract removal and eye surgery. I have a caring and personable attitude towards my patients, providing excellent clinical care.

I am a Consultant Ophthalmic and Oculoplastic Surgeon at Moorfields Eye Hospital based at the Bedford Unit I have an honorary contract with the Luton and Dunstable Hospital and draw regional referrals for watery eyes, eyelid, cancer and cosmetic work, cataract, general ophthlmology and undertake intraocular refractive work with premium and toric IOLs.

I qualified in Medicine from Imperial College, London and underwent basic specialist ophthalmology training in the London and the East Anglia Regions before completing my higher specialist training at Moorfields Eye Hospital. I was awarded the Gold Medal as the most distinguished candidate for the clinical and surgical ophthalmic Fellowship Examination. During my undergraduate studies I was awarded the highest first class distinction for my BSc.

I undertook an extended sub-speciality fellowship in oculoplastic and lacrimal surgery at Moorfields Eye Hospital focusing on conditions such as lid lumps, tumours and malpositions, watery eyes and lacrimal problems along with orbitofacial cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation. I have lectured widely both at national and international levels on periocular facial plastics and cataract surgery.

I have published over 60 scientific articles and given over 150 lectures relating to ophthalmology. These articles are on ophthalmic surgery, the eyelids and surrounding tissue, tumours, watery eye, reconstruction, eye investigations, diabetes, multifocal IOLs and cataract surgery along with surgical training. I am the primary investigator for several ongoing studies investigating novel diagnostic methods and treatments in ophthalmology, also the lead on a national collaboration investigating tumours of the eyelid and surrounding tissues and the regional lead for the Intraocular Lens Study Group (a multicentre collaboration) investigating Multifocal IOLs.

I head up several other teams investigating novel technologies relating to eye surgery and have received grants for work on eyelid surgery, cataract surgery, general ophthalmology among others.

The practice offers face to face consultation, telephone and zoom consultations.
