He trained and worked as a consultant for 14 years at London’s Moorfields Eye Hospital and specialises in advanced technologies for correcting vision, including stem cell transplants, corneal transplants, lens implants and laser vision correction.

Since then he has qualified first in his class in both medical school and the Royal College of Ophthalmologists' membership examinations and has been awarded numerous prizes and distinctions for his work and research in helping the blind to see.
