I graduated from the University of Leicester Medical School with honours in 2009.  I successfully completed 7 years of UK specialist Ophthalmology training based in the East Midlands, gaining entry to the Ophthalmology specialist register with the General Medical Council (GMC).  I then went on to complete a specialist vitreoretinal fellowship at the University hospitals of Leicester and a further senior vitreoretinal fellowship at the Birmingham & Midlands Eye Centre (BMEC).
