Mr Vinod Gangwani

FRCS, MRCOphth | Ophthalmology

Mr Gangwani is a highly qualified consultant eye surgeon delivering expert care. He gained extensive experience in ocular surgery at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London. He currently holds the position of Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at Ashford & St Peter’s NHS foundation trust, where he also holds the position of clinical lead for cataract microsurgery.

He completed a fellowship in cataract surgery at Moorfields eye hospital, where he gained extensive experience in complex cataract surgery and premium intra-ocular implants (multifocal/ trifocal and toric). He followed this up with a renowned fellowship in the cornea and external disease at Moorfields Eye Hospital and also at Kings College Hospital in London. He worked as a Consultant Ophthalmic surgeon at Kings College hospital in London for 15 months before moving to Surrey.

He provides tertiary corneal and cataract surgery expertise for routine and complex corneal problems. Mr Gangwani has delivered numerous presentations at international conferences and published widely in multiple peer reviewed journals including American Journal of Ophthalmology, Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery and British Journal of Ophthalmology.

His active areas of interest include: management of astigmatism during cataract surgery, reduce dependency on glasses, refractive lens based surgery, lamellar corneal transplants, bespoke cataract surgery including multifocal/trifocal and toric intraocular implants.
