    About

    Mr Rohit Jolly is a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon with subspecialist interests in paediatric ophthalmology, adult strabismus, neuro-ophthalmology as well as adult cataract surgery and general ophthalmology. He is the clinical lead for Emergency Eye Care at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust where he holds a substantive NHS Consultant post.

    Mr Jolly graduated from the University College London with a degree in medicine and also neuroscience for which he achieved the Deans list prize for recognition of his outstanding achievement. He undertook his Ophthalmic training within the North Thames London Deanery, rotating through many different hospitals including the world renowned Moorfields Eye Hospital, acquiring a breadth of experience from leading clinicians within their fields.

    He has furthered his extensive experience by undertaking a Fellowship at the Royal Free in Paediatric Ophthalmology, Adult Strabismus and Cataract surgery, learning the modern techniques of squint surgery as well as its medical management. In addition to this he has a keen interest in acute ophthalmic care and has held the position of a Consultant at Moorfields Eye Hospital in the busiest dedicated ophthalmic eye casualty in Europe.

    Mr Jolly has always been passionate about teaching and training and is a College Tutor at the Roysal Free, heavily involved in the education of junior ophthalmic surgeons as well as expanding the role of general medical physicians and optometrists in the management of ophthalmic complaints. He has been involved in setting up a number of teaching programmes to help equip professionals with the highest level of understanding and confidence, to provide patients with the best care possible.

    The approach to patient care has to be specifically tailored to each individual, whether a child or adult, and involve them along this journey and decision making process. This principle is something Mr Jolly firmly believes in and his compassionate, calm and competent approach is something that puts him in a position where patients have continued to place trust in him.

    When not at work Mr Jolly enjoys spending time with his family, cooking, practicing yoga and playing cricket.

    Mr. Jolly examined my little girl's eyes due to R.O.P. through months and months, sometimes on a weekly basis. For us parents, these times were very unsettling but we were very lucky to have Mr. Jolly on board. He followed our case very closely and thoroughly and we always felt we're in safe hands with him and that gave us comfort. He deserves all the praise and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

    Dr Jolly is an Angel, he truly is a life saver as he saved my daughter’s life who is 6 months old now by reacting really quick and referring her to royal London hospital as an emergency. Because of his quick and caring action my daughter was diagnosed with Retinablastoma at 3 months old and had surgery to remove her right eye. He is reason she is alive and the cancer didn’t spread which she didn’t need to go through chemo all because he was an amazing, kind caring and very quick to react. Our family can not thank him enough, As her mother I feel very blessed to have my baby back in my arms again all thanks to Dr Jolly which no words are enough to describe how brilliant he is he is and that he truly is an Angel giving my daughter a second chance to live .
