I have been a consultant ophthalmologist since 2010, initially serving communities in County Durham followed by Bradford. I am a highly-experienced cataract surgeon and perform all levels of complex cataract procedures on a regular basis, completing over 800 per year. I also have fellowship training in glaucoma as well as cornea and refractive surgery.
Originally from Trinidad and Tobago, I obtained my medical and surgical degrees from The University of the West Indies before I migrated to the UK at the turn of the millennium to pursue a career in ophthalmology.
My postgraduate training was undertaken in the North Thames, South Thames and Yorkshire and Humber Deaneries. During this time, I worked at Moorfields Eye Hospital and St James’ University Hospital while also performing clinical and laboratory research at the Institute of Ophthalmology at Moorfields and King’s College London.
I also have a keen interest in teaching and have lectured in a variety of subjects to third-year medical students at University College London and Royal Free Hospital. Alongside this, I am the College Tutor at Bradford Royal Infirmary and continue to teach and guide young ophthalmologists in training to help them achieve their goals.
