I am a senior lecturer in Glasgow Caledonian university vision centre. I have published papers in peer reviewed journals and am involved in the training and examining of medical students, opticians and ophthalmic trainees.
I graduated from University of Glasgow medical school in 1997. I completed my basic and higher surgical training in the West of Scotland Hospitals. The majority of my training was based in the Tennent Institute of Ophthalmology, Gartnavel General Hospital, Glasgow where I also completed 2 further fellowships.
I specialise in cataract, natural lens replacement and eye lid surgery. I have performed over 16000 cases of cataract and laser eye surgery. I am particularly interested and experienced in Multifocal Lens Implantation to achieve spectacle independence following cataract surgery. I am one of the very few eye surgeons in Scotland who has the training and access to Laser Cataract Surgery.
I am a friendly local experienced NHS surgeon who treats all of his patients with great respect and dignity. All my patients are given my own direct phone number after surgery. I believe that private cataract surgery with a consultant of your choice should also be affordable and accessible to as many patients as possible. I work with all major insurance companies and have affordable payment schemes for self funding patients.
I audit all my surgical outcomes regularly and in my latest ongoing audit of 200 cases, we achieved 100% patient satisfaction. I regularly perform surgery on complex cataracts and despite that, my surgical complication rate is well below national average.
I am an active member of various affiliated bodies and societies such as the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
I am the founder and lead surgeon for Oculoplastic and Orbital services, including eye and eyelid trauma, in Lanarkshire health board. I supervise junior doctors of all grades.
