About me

Mr Vijay Hegde has over 20 years of experience in ophthalmology. He was appointed as substantive consultant ophthalmologist in 2010 and currently working in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. He has undergone extensive training in cataract and retinal surgery. He has undertaken surgical fellowships in Edinburgh, Newcastle, Manchester and Aberdeen.

Mr Hegde specialises in performing complex cataract surgery including topical or no needle cataract surgery. His routine practice involves micro incision with full choice of introcular lenses to reduce spectacle dependency and he is one of the early adopters of latest technologies in ophthalmology using sutureless, local anaesthetic vitrectomy for an early post operative recovery.

Mr Hegde has numerous publications and presentations under his name. He is recognised as a surgical trainer both for cataract and vitreoretinal surgery by Royal College of Ophthalmologists. He is actively involved in training medical students, nurses and optometrists. He is a faculty of examiners in Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. He is regional Education Advisor for Royal College of Ophthalmologists.

Mr Hegde lives with wife, two children and his pet Buddy (Goldie). Outside his profession he enjoys playing golf and cricket. I am junior convenor for local cricket club.
