    About

He graduated from the University of London in 1986, before going on to complete postgraduate training in ophthalmology at the world famous Moorfields Eye Hospital. He now holds consultations and sees patients across sites in central London and in Kingston. 

    Mr Horgan has experience managing and treating a variety of eye related problems, but has a special clinical interest in macular degeneration and retinal problems, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, cataracts, multifocal implant lenses, and astigmatic corrections.

    For appointments at our Harley Street and New Malden clinics please contact the office on 020 7060 9911. Appointments are advertised but the site is not live, so will need to be confirmed with us. Our Practice Manager can also help with enquiries for appointments at the New Victoria Hospital or you can contact them directly to book an appointment on 020 8949 9020. Appointments are not confirmed until you have spoken to a member of staff.

    We now have a new aesthetics clinic, Volumella which we run from the New Malden Diagnostic Centre on Saturdays. Please phone the office for more information on botulinum toxins (anti wrinkle) and dermal fillers (including lips).

    Please note that the NHS clinic at Moorfields St George's is not looked after by the staff at the private practice and we cannot arrange appointments there.

    I was very impressed with Mr. Simon Horgan both before and after my cataract operation. He is a very professional person together with his team. Mr. Horgan put me at ease and explained everything that would be happening. On the day of the operation the anaesthetist explained what she would be doing after which I wondered why I was apprehensive. Before my operation I had difficulty reading and recognising people and also very wobbly when walking outside and after the operation everything was very clear and precise and I found I had no problems walking. I am now waiting to have an operation on my other eye. I would like to say thank you to all the team and look forward to seeing you again shortly.

    Pre- and post- consultations were pretty much on time and informative. The actual operation involved quite a lot of waiting around and being asked/told the same thing by different people (a bit of an issue for the New Victoria). But the surgery/anaesthesia team were excellent and once we got going it was remarkably easy to go through.

    I left a review when Mr Horgan replaced the cateract in my left eye. He has now replaced the cateract in my right eye and my experience has been just as excellent as before. I would consult Mr Horgan again should another eye condition need treatment.
