Ophthalmologist, Cataract Surgery, Eye Doctor - Ahmad Aziz
I am a Consultant Ophthalmologist and Eye Doctor in London. Specialising in Cataract Surgery, Blepharoplasty and Oculoplastic condition working in Harley Street and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. Here you can see the range of ophthalmic services I offer for the health and treatment of your eye. I take pride in my work and my patients. I help my patients to restore their vision and treat their eye conditions in a way that best suits their needs and lifestyle. Eye surgery is delicate and requires care and attention. Whether you are suffering from irritation of the eyes, lumps and bumps around the eyes, watery eyes, droopy eyelids, thyroid eye disease or other eyelid conditions you should choose a specialist doctor dedicated to the field.
Your eyes are important to you and to me as well.
Should I choose a plastic surgeon or oculoplastic surgeon?
Eyelid surgery is a very specialised area of surgery. In all National Health Hospitals surgery of the eyelids is undertaken by oculoplastic surgeons who are eye doctors and not plastic surgeons. Oculoplastic surgeons are ophthalmologists who have undertaken training focused entirely on the eyes, the eyelids and the surrounding structures. Oculoplastic surgeons are able to examine the eye, treat eye disease and have an awareness of how any surgery in this are can affect the eyes. Whilst plastic surgeons may be competent in eyelid surgery they are unable to assess the eye as they generally have had no training in ophthalmology. Oculoplastic surgeons tend to have carried more eyelid procedures in their training and career than plastic surgeons. In the unlikely event of there being an eye problem following surgery oculoplastic surgeons are well positioned to manage this whilst a plastic surgeon would have to refer you on to someone who is able to manage this.
Through a holistic approach to medicine, I try viewing each patient as a whole rather than a single symptom to be treated. This is just one of many approaches I take as your eye doctor and ophthalmologist when coming up with any diagnosis and plan. Your health deserves proper care and attention and I’m able to provide. Please contact me today to schedule an appointment at the convenience of a web connected Central London location including Harley Street.

Specialising in plastic surgery around the eye, I am focused on giving the best possible outcomes in this region. From eyelid lumps to problems with the position and appearance of the eyelids in conditions known as entropion and ectropion and blepharoplasty surgery, to trauma and tumour surgery this is a field dedicated to the structures around the eye which we know best.
Ptosis is a disorder that results in dropping of the eye lid and a compensatory raising of the eyebrows which can be effectively treated surgically. Thyroid eye disease and orbital pathology are conditions that can have a big impact on life and I can help with this at my London clinic.

The most common type of cataract develops with increasing age and can result in colours becoming more brown, constantly needing to change your glasss to glare at night. Cataract surgery is done as a day case procedure where you can go home the same day. There are a number of different surgical options available and its important to select a surgeon you can trust.
Cataract surgery is commonly done under local anaesthetic with sedation and general anaesthetic options available for those nervous about the operation. A number of different lenses are available to give clear vision or glasses free vision depending on your needs.
