About me


I graduated from Cambridge University in 1994 and the Royal London Medical School in 1997.  I completed my Registrar Training in Cambridge and Norwich before undertaking a Specialist Fellowship in Paediatric Opthalmology and Adult Strabismus in Vancouver, Canada.


I was appointed to a Consultant post at The Royal Bournemouth Hospital in February 2008.


I have undertaken six months further training in Neuro-Opthalmology at Moorfields Eye Hospital.



I have published peer-review papers on improving outcomes for Cataract Surgery, Toric-intraocular lenses and Squint surgery techniques. My current area of interest is in the use of Cataract surgery to make patients less dependant on glasses.


Member of:

  • Royal College of Opthalmologists (Fellow)
  • British Isles Paediatric Opthalmology and Strabismus Association (BIPOSA)
  • European Neuro-Opthalmology Society
  • United Kingdom and Ireland Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons
  • European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery


Other Roles:

Cataract Trainer and Education Supervisor at The Royal Bournemouth Hospital

College Tutor, The Royal Bournemouth Hospital (2009-12)


Bournemouth Nuffield Team at Laser Eye Surgery training day

Cataract training simulator at Bournemouth

Through generous funding from the regional training organisation and the Friends of Bournemouth Eye Unit, we have managed to secure the purchase of a virtual reality cataract simulator. This state of the art training simulator will enhance the experience of both trainees and patients while young ophthalmologists learn to perform cataract surgery.
