Mr Rafik Girgis is an experienced Consultant Ophthalmologist, specialising in cataract surgery and general ophthalmology. He trained at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, where his training included two fellowships in cataract and primary care, before working there for a year as a Consultant.

Between April 2011 and November 2017, Mr Girgis provided the Primary Care Service at Bristol Eye Hospital. He is an expert in the field of premium lenses, and although he has now left NHS practice, he is more than happy to offer consultations to NHS patients at his private clinic at Nuffield Health Bristol Hospital, The Chesterfield.


"Mr Girgis has been excellent throughout the whole procedure and I have had a brilliant outcome. I have already recommended him to friends and family. I owe so much to Mr Girgis, a true gentleman."
"Mr Girgis has a lovely manner and is a skilful surgeon."
"I could not have asked for anything more from my experience. I am extremely happy with the care I have received from all of the staff."
