About me

Mr. Romesh Angunawela BM, MD, FRCOphth, FRCS, Cert LRS, is a Consultant Eye Surgeon at Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Trust where he is a specialist in cataract, lens, corneal transplant and laser surgery. He established the state-of-the-art OCL Vision clinic and surgical center in London together with other leading surgeons.

Mr Angunawela was peer-voted as one of the top 10 cataract surgeons in the UK in 2018. He was recommended in Spear's 500 as one of the top 10 eye surgeons in the UK 2022. He is an internationally recognized expert in vision correction surgery including laser eye surgery, cataract, and lens replacement surgery, as well as corneal transplantation for conditions such as Fuchs' dystrophy and treatment of keratoconus.

With a desire to deliver the best possible technologies to patients in a surgeon-led environment, Mr Angunawela joined with several other leading surgeons to form the OCL Vision surgical clinic in 2018. The clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art technology including femto-laser cataract surgery, Zeiss Callisto intra-operative astigmatism correction and the Schwind Amaris 1050RS excimer laser for vision correction.

Mr Angunawela aims for best potential vision correction during cataract surgery for correction of shortsight, longsight and astigmatism, and has extensive experience in the use of premium lens implants including EDOF, enhanced monofocal and trifocal lenses. He is one of the few cataract surgeons in the UK who is able to correct residual post-operative prescriptions with laser eye surgery for optimal vision.

Mr. Angunawela graduated from Southampton University (BM) in 1997 and was awarded the Altounyan Research Prize for research into the prevention of stroke-related brain injury. He completed ophthalmic training at St Thomas' Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital in London and received a doctorate (MD) from the University of London for his thesis on corneal wound healing after laser eye surgery. He has published over 50 scientific papers and is the recipient of over 20 national and international awards. He also holds the Certificate in Laser & Refractive Surgery from the Royal College of Ophthalmologists.

Following residency training at Moorfields, Mr Angunawela super specialised in corneal and lens surgeries in the highly sought-after fellowship programs at Moorfields Eye Hospital and with Professor Donald Tan at the Singapore National Eye Centre.
