A Consultant Ophthamologist based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

Welcome to my website. Please feel free to browse through any of the pages to find out about my practice and ophthalmic surgery in general. I have been a consultant eye surgeon since 1997 and I believe I have built up a practice that is highly respected by peers and recommended by patients throughout this time. I welcome your feedback and I am always keen to innovate and to improve the care I offer my patients.

I am based in Gloucestershire with links to an excellent local NHS eye unit and I work within the Consultant Eye Surgeons Partnership (CESP), which is an organisation for specialist eye surgeons across the country to work together to provide optimum care for patients with eye problems.
