Usman Hussain

I am a consultant ophthalmic surgeon with a specialist interest in corneal and cataract surgery.

I qualified from Guy’s, King’s & St Thomas’ Hospital Medical School in 2005 where I was awarded the Hisako Ikeda undergraduate prize in ophthalmology and special study module merits for studies in ophthalmology.

During my ophthalmic training, I was awarded the John Cairns Memorial prize and the Marie Comer prize from the Cambridge University Hospitals Trust for research projects in ophthalmology.

My key professional interests are complex cataract surgery, refractive cataract surgery and cataract surgery in patients with pre-existing corneal and ocular surface disease. I also have extensive experience in premium lens technology including extended depth of focus, trifocal and toric lens implants.

I have a particularly strong interest in medical education and as the Ophthalmology College Tutor for West Suffolk Hospital, I am responsible for the training of trainee surgeons within my unit. I also sit on the East of England School of Ophthalmology Training Committee and run the Ophthalmology exit examination course for the East of England Deanery.
