Coronavirus update 3rd March

Many of our patients are concerned about the coronavirus. Obviously for the moment the number of confirmed cases in the UK is low. We all hope that it will stay that way, but realistically it may well get worse before it gets better. So what do we recommend to our patients? Firstly, please follow the… Continue reading »


Meditation and Glaucoma

I attended the Moorfields International Glaucoma Symposium recently in London. Many interesting talks were delivered on a number of glaucoma topics at this two day conference. Although there was much that was interesting, the most original and novel lecture was on the benefits of meditation on glaucoma – this attracted a lot of interest. A… Continue reading »


2019 in numbers

New year and time to look at our private practice stats again. These are only for the private practice and don’t include Mark’s NHS work at Moorfields Eye Hospital and The Royal London Hospital – otherwise the totals for surgery and consultations would be much higher! Number of consultations (new patient and follow up): 2100… Continue reading »


New research from ARVO – The world’s largest eye research meeting

The ARVO Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of eye and vision researchers in the world, attracting over 11,000 attendees from more than 75 countries. I went to ARVO in Vancouver in May to present some of my own research and to sit on the panel for one of the sessions. ARVO is an excellent… Continue reading »


2018 in numbers….

We’ve been crunching some of our private practice numbers and thought we’d share them with you, to give an idea of our practice size and specialties. Obviously bear in mind that Mark carries out many of these procedures and operations in his NHS practice, too, so his actual total is much higher! Number of consultations… Continue reading »


Aloha from Hawaii!

Aloha!  I recently attended the ARVO meeting in Hawaii. This is an annual meeting of eye research, devoted to vision and ophthalmology and is one of the largest conferences in the world. Having been in Baltimore last year (less popular), the venue was in Honolulu, Hawaii this May. I was one of about 10,000 delegates.… Continue reading »


Happy New Year – and Mark’s book!

  We’d like to wish all our patients and colleagues a happy and healthy New Year in 2018. Some of you may know that Mark has been busy writing a book!  Not an action adventure blockbuster, alas, but a primer on uveitis aimed at ophthalmologists in training.  Mark runs uveitis clinics at Moorfields Eye Hospital… Continue reading »


Argentine Uveitis Society

During the summer I was privileged to give a couple of lectures at the inaugural meeting of the Argentine Uveitis Society following a kind invitation from a colleague and fellow specialist, Professor Christobal Couto.  One of the lectures I gave was on a rare inflammatory disease of the eyes called Birdshot retinochoroiditis. I have a… Continue reading »


Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) – The iStent


There is currently a lot of interest in newer surgical techniques for treating glaucoma. Until recently, if the intraocular pressure could not be controlled with drops, and in some cases laser treatment, glaucoma specialists resorted to glaucoma surgery, either trabeculectomy (where a trapdoor flap is created to relieve pressure), or a tube. Whilst successful, these… Continue reading »


The 11th Pan-Hellenic Vitreo-Retinal Meeting – and archeology…

I was invited to speak recently at the 11th Pan-Hellenic vitreo-retinal meeting, held in Athens. This was a welcome chance to catch-up with my many Greek friends and colleagues. Some I trained alongside and others I have helped train during their time spent at Moorfields. I was invited to oppose the motion of a debate… Continue reading »
