Mr Parmar completed a clinical fellowship in cornea, external diseases and refractive surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, USA, from 2003-2005. As a result of his training and research, he has authored over 27 papers in peer-reviewed journals and has written 3 book chapters. He is one of the few eye surgeons in the UK to have undergone state-of-the-art training in refractive surgery in a prestigious clinical fellowship program in the USA. Mr Parmar is one of the first few ophthalmology consultants in the UK to have offered corneal collagen cross-linking treatment for keratoconus, both in the private and NHS settings. In doing so, he has made a tremendous contribution to improving the quality of life of patients with keratoconus. 

Mr Parmar was awarded the CCST (Certificate of Completion of Surgical Training) and specialist registration under the General Medical Council in ophthalmology in 2003. Mr Parmar is now in full-time independent medical practice, having been a consultant ophthalmic surgeon at Whipps Cross University Hospital, Barts Health NHS Trust, from January 2006 to August 2017. He further maintains his links with the NHS by continuing to provide his expertise on a sessional basis. Mr Parmar was awarded the prestigious Fellowship of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (FRANZCO) in September 2011.

In addition to general ophthalmology, Mr Parmar subspecialises in cornea, uveitis, cataract and refractive (vision correction) 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 phacoemulsification cataract surgery and has a wide depth of experience in both straightforward and complex cataract surgical cases. In addition to standard monofocal intraocular lens implants (IOLs), he can also offer a variety of premium IOLs to render independence from spectacles for all distances of vision. This includes multifocal and extended depth of focus IOLs such as the Symfony® implant.

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.

Mr Parmar specialises in the treatment of keratoconus using ultraviolet collagen cross-linking of the cornea with riboflavin to stabilize the disease. He is also certified in using intracorneal rings such as INTACS® which can improve vision in advanced cases. In severe cases he can perform deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty and penetrating full-thickness corneal grafts where indicated.

What patients say about Dipak N Parmar

We could not be more happy with the way Dr Parmar treated our elderly mother for cataract removal, his patience and attention to detail with our elderly mum who suffers from Dementia, diabetes and asthma, his loving care and support, was second to none. We can not speak more highly of the treatment she received at his hands and would highly recommend Dr Parmar to anybody else in the fields he specialises in.
