I qualified as an orthoptist in 1989 from the Welsh School of Orthoptics and have been practicing ever since. I worked at Moorfields Eye Hospital for 16 years and in Harley Street for 5 years. For the last 15 years, I have worked in private practice at the Clementine Churchill Hospital in Harrow and more recently at Spire Harpenden and provide a locum service when needed to NHS hospitals. I also run a vision screening service in private schools.
I specialise in assessment and treatment of adult and childhood squints, lazy eyes needing treatment with patching, double vision resulting from injury or cranial nerve palsies and convergence problems. I also regularly perform visual field assessments for glaucoma and DVLA.
I enjoy working with patients of all ages and patient satisfaction is very important to me.
