About me

Mr John Awad is a consultant ophthalmologist with specific surgical expertise in state-of-the-art micro-incision (key-hole) cataract and oculoplastic surgery. Having graduated with a medical degree from Manchester university and with a very early interest in ophthalmology, he went on to gain further medical elective experience in this field at the Norfolk and Norwich hospital and spent an influential time in the Cook Islands.

After finishing rotations in general medical and surgical fields, he then completed his post – graduate ophthalmic specialist training in the west midland deanery. This was followed by a further fellowship in oculoplastic, lacrimal and orbital surgery at one of the largest tertiary referral centres in the country; Birmingham Midland Eye Centre.

Mr Awad is a full member of the British Oculoplastic Surgical Society. This prestigious society is a national governing society which upholds excellence in research and training. Furthermore, it promotes the highest standard of clinical practice in the field of functional and aesthetic eyelid surgery, also referred to as oculo-facial surgery.

With an interest in teaching and training he is an examiner for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. He not only has several publications but has also been invited to review articles for peer reviewed journals and has presented at national and international level.

Mr Awad enjoys spending time with his family, travel and playing tennis. Having grown up in a coastal village in Norfolk he enjoys all things seaside related.
