Optegra is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Maghizh Anandan as a Consultant Eye Surgeon at Optegra Eye Hospital Birmingham. Mr Anandan will lead refractive surgery at the hospital including laser vision correction, lens replacement and private cataract surgery.
He joins Optegra from the Royal Derby Hospital where he was the lead corneal surgeon. This was preceded by an honorary fellowship in the Moorfield Eye Hospital Cornea Department under Professor John Dart.
Mr Anandan specialised in cornea, refractive surgery and glaucoma during a fellowship at Royal Perth Hospital, Western Australia. During this time, he also gained considerable experience in corneal transplantation, ocular surface disease management, refractive laser surgery, trabeculectomies and glaucoma tube surgery.
He completed his higher surgical training in ophthalmology and gained comprehensive general ophthalmic training in Oxford. His varied career has also included time at the Aravind Eye Hospital in India.
“I was first attracted to ophthalmology because it offers a combination of medicine and surgery. The surgery is intricate and quite clean in comparison to most other surgical specialties. I also enjoy the physics aspect of ophthalmology, as well as using all the various gadgets,” says Mr Anandan.
On joining Optegra, Mr Anandan continues: “Optegra is a centre of excellence and a leader in its field. The ability to provide patients with the most advanced technology in treatment combined with top class standards of patient care attracted me the most.
“Vision impairment is no longer a matter of age. Advancements in corneal and lens-based refractive surgery are helping us to optimize vision for an even wider group of patients. We are fortunate to have brilliant research and studies on the outcomes for all available vision correction options. At Optegra our personal approach combined with exceptional facilities enable us to tailor solutions to individual needs.”
