About me

I am an ophthalmic surgeon, based in Edinburgh, with more than 20 years experience. I was appointed as a consultant based in the Edinburgh Eye Pavilion in 1999 and have practised at Spire Shawfair since it opened.

I performed 580 small incision phacoemulsification cataract surgery procedures over the past 12 months using topical (no injections) anaesthesia for more than 99% of all cases.

My results taken from my last appraisal (12.1.24) are:

Visual outcomes; 97% of my patients saw 6/12 or better @ 4/52 postop (benchmarking figure 91% 1) with 75% seeing 6/12 or better unaided. this data includes all returned audit forms which represents 34% (194/580) of all operations performed

Complications; 0.3% (2/580) posterior capsular tear (benchmarking figure 0.9%1)

I have taught extensively, I co-author Ophthalmology Pocket Tutor, the third edition of which has just been published.
