I am a consultant ophthalmologist and clinical lead for the cataract and corneal service at CUH. I am a visiting professor at the Vision and Eye Research Institute based at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge.
In addition, I am the eastern regional representative for the ocular tissue advisory group, NHS BT, UK, as well as being a trustee for the Cambridge Eye Trust Charity.
I also lead a corneal research team with basic science researchers, PhD studentships and clinicians focused on corneal transplant research, corneal therapeutics, corneal stem cells and advanced intraocular lenses with over 50 publications in peer-reviewed literature.
Myself and my team have developed a novel endothelial keratoplasty technique termed ‘Microthin DSAEK’ which has improved patient outcomes. It won the NHS Health Enterprise Innovation Award and recently introduced femtosecond laser assisted eye surgery to patients in Cambridgeshire. I am also the principal investigator for the corneal transplant randomised trial and iCAM project looking at rapid diagnosis for ocular infections.
