Mr A Shafiq, FRCOphth (London), MRCPPaeds (UK), DCH (London), MA (Cambridge University), BM & BCh (Oxford University).
More about me:
I am a Consultant Eye Surgeon working in the Nuffield Hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne, England.
My NHS post is at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle.
I have 18 years’ experience as a Consultant Ophthalmologist performing 500 adult cataract operations per year.
I offer a bespoke cataract surgery service so that each person has vision that matches his or her needs and expectations.
I have created this website to provide information about the service I offer and about cataract surgery in general.
If you wish to see me, we would have a half hour Consultation at our first meeting. I will carefully assess your eye, and discuss the best type of lens replacement to meet your needs, take all measurements and book you in for surgery . Within 3 weeks you will have your first eye surgery and usually both eyes will have had surgery within 5 weeks of our meeting. PLEASE NOTE THAT COVID HAS CREATED SIGNIFICANT UNPREDICTABLE DELAY TO THE TIMING OF SURGERY . FIRST EYE SURGERY IS RUNNING 2 to 3 MONTHS AFTER OUR MEETING.
If this meets your needs read the following pages for costs, contact information, testimonials, information on all aspects of surgery and my surgical results.
