Personal and professional eye care in Norfolk

I am a consultant ophthalmologist in Norwich with a specific interest in cataract and disorders of the cornea and ocular surface including dry eyes..


About me

Fellowship-trained eye surgeon

I graduated from the University of Leeds with Honours degrees in Pharmacology and Medicine and after gaining experience in a wide range of medical specialties in Yorkshire, London and Australia I specialised in ophthalmology.


My ophthalmology training was undertaken in Worcestershire and Yorkshire during which time I completed the training programme of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. I gained specialist recognition in 2011 before moving to Perth, Australia to undertake a year-long fellowship in anterior segment surgery at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital under Professor Graham Barrett. On returning to the UK I completed a further year of fellowship in cornea and external eye disorders at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London.


I took up my consultant post in 2014 at Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital and have a varied ophthalmic practice caring for patients with cataract, corneal and ocular surface problems, medical retina conditions and glaucoma. I am currently College Tutor for ophthalmology at NNUH and am heavily involved in teaching and training the ophthalmologists of the future.

Personal and professional - putting you first.

It is very important to me that I always strive to provide the best possible service. This is why there are a number of key features of my practice:

  • I will see you personally at all consultations.


  • You will be seen quickly and offered any treatment necessary with minimal waiting.


  • I use a carefully selected range of the most advanced lens implants from leading brands including Alcon, Johnson & Johnson Vision and Rayner.


  • I will be happy to discuss any concerns you may have before or after treatment.
