In 2014, Sunil was voted in the top 100 most influential Ophthalmologists in the world. He has performed well over 500 cataract/lens extraction procedures a year and specialises in complex cataract surgery. 

Sunil currently works as a Consultant Ophthalmologist at Birmingham & Midland Eye Centre and Honorary Consultant at Birmingham Children's Hospital. There he specialises in complex corneal and refractive surgery and independently developed the laser eye surgery technique now called LASEK.
