Having graduated with a medical degree from Manchester University and with a very early interest in ophthalmology, he went on to gain further medical elective experience in this field at the Norfolk and Norwich hospital and spent an influential time in the Cook Islands.

Having completed his post-graduate ophthalmic specialist training in the West Midlands Deanery, he underwent a further fellowship in oculoplastic, lacrimal and orbital surgery at one of the largest tertiary referral centres in the country; Birmingham Midland Eye Centre.
