Private cataract surgery in Norfolk and Suffolk

I am pleased to offer patients across East Anglia consultations and surgery for a wide range of eye conditions, including Cataract SurgeryCorneal care and general eye health.

  • Appointments are available at East Point Consulting Rooms at the James Paget University Hospital (JPUH) in Gorleston as well as at the Beccles and District War Memorial Hospital
  • I believe in providing a courteous, warm and caring personal service. Cataract patients are given my personal mobile number after surgery in the unlikely event of needing advice or reassurance outside normal hours.
  • I carry out hundreds of successful Cataract Surgery procedures every year with surgical complication rates 20 times lower than the Royal College of Ophthalmologists' national average.
  • Prices are fair, competitive and transparent.
  • Patient feedback is consistently extremely positive - I aim for a collaborative relationship with every patient and I value the fact that many come via recommendation.
  • My six years as Clinical Lead for the NHS Ophthalmology service at JPUH reflects my commitment to excellent care and superior outcomes.

I look forward to meeting you and discussing your requirements or concerns.
