Clinical interests

In addition to general ophthalmology, Mr Parmar subspecialises in cornea, uveitis and cataract surgery. He performs modern corneal transplantation including penetrating keratoplasty and newer lamellar techniques such as big bubble anterior lamellar keratoplasty and posterior endokeratoplasty (DSEK). As a fellowship-trained refractive surgeon he incorporates laser and non-laser approaches to treatment. Laser correction includes wavefront customisation where indicated, combined with LASIK, LASEK or PRK. He is also performs phakic intraocular lens insertion, known as the “implantable contact lens”, in selected cases. Mr Parmar performs state-of-the-art modern cataract surgery using both traditional monofocal and newer multifocal (Restor®, Rezoom®, Tecnis®) intraocular lenses.

Some patients with high myopia or thin corneas are unsuitable for laser vision correction surgery but may be candidates for phakic intraocular lenses (IOLs). In these cases Mr Parmar is one of a select few UK surgeons specifically certified in the implantation of the STAAR® Visian ICL (implantable contact lens) and the Verisyse® &  Veriflex® phakic IOLs.
