Profile

Sub-speciality : Cataract surgery

Special clinical interests : Vitreo-retinal surgery, refractive cataract surgery – correcting pre-existing shortsight, longsight and astigmatism and vitreo retinal surgery.

Research interests : Anaesthesia for cataract surgery and reduction of complications in cataract surgery.

Professional profile :  I am a cataract surgeon performing over 700 cataract operations per year at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and Cromer and District Hospital. I lecture around the country on improving the efficiency and delivery of cataract surgery and on the use of topical anaesthesia so that patients do not require to have anaesthetic injection to have their cataract procedure.

Pre-existing refractive errors (long sightedness, short sightedness and astigmatism) can be corrected at the time of cataract surgery and reduce the need for glasses following the operation.

I offer victreo-retinal surgery, which includes treatment for macula pathology, retinal detachment and bleeding within the eye.

Personal profile : As well as operating on over 1000 patients per year, I try and maintain outside interests which include music (french horn and piano playing), sailing, kitesurfing and wine tasting!
