He was appointed as a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at King George Hospital in Ilford (North East London NHS Treatment Centre) in 2011 with a special interest in cataract surgery, corneal transplantation and the correction of presbyopia.
He has received the Certification in Laser Refractive Surgery by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (CertLRS). He is exceptionally skilled in the use of LASIK and LASEK treatments as well as the most advanced Multifocal intraocular lenses and is also certified in the use of the Artisan Iris Clip lens and the Staar Visian ICL, in order to serve patients unsuitable for laser therapy. Aiming to provide the best medical care possible, he has completed a Corneal and Anterior Segment Fellowship that allowed him to extensively practice his skills in the particular domain.

He regularly presents his published scientific articles and papers at the Cataract and Surgery Conferences in the UK, Europe and US and is a manuscript reviewer for the British Medical Journal.
