Specialist's working hours
Mr Brookes qualified from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in 1993. He has been a consultant ophthalmologist at Moorfields Eye Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children since 2004, specialising in adult and paediatric glaucoma and cataract surgery. He provides a tertiary level service for childhood glaucoma and a second opinion for all types of complex glaucoma in both adults and children; he has the largest specialist paediatric glaucoma practice in the UK. His passion is complex and revision glaucoma surgery in both children and adults but is also happy performing routine cataract surgery and primary glaucoma surgery. He also practises privately at the London Claremont Clinic in West London, as well at Moorfields.
As an Internationally recognised specialist in childhood glaucoma, he lectures both Nationally and Internationally in glaucoma and for the past 8 years has volunteered for the ORBIS programme, providing teaching and training to local doctors in developing countries, including Bangladesh, India, Vietnam, China and Mongolia.
Although primarily a clinician and surgeon, Mr Brookes has published widely in recent years and his outcomes of glaucoma surgery in children, 360-degree trabeculotomy, tube implant surgery and laser photocoagulation have just been published in peer-reviewed journals.
Outside medicine, Mr Brookes plays the violin regularly and has performed with the Great Ormond Street Hospital Symphony Orchestra. He is a keen runner and has raised thousands of pounds for vision-related charities by running 3 London marathons and 2 Brighton marathons.
