WELCOME TO 

Your Cataract Surgery Specialist

Nicholas Glover is a consultant eye surgeon and fellow of the    Royal College of Ophthalmologists, who has performed over 16,000 eye operations in the NHS and private sectors since being appointed as a consultant at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital  Birmingham in 2008


I perform almost all of my cataract surgery using local anaesthetic as this allows for rapid recovery back to normal activity. For most people vision recovers within a few days of surgery and they are able to return to driving after one week.


My  team are able to perform local anaesthetic surgery on many patients who are otherwise deemed as unsuitable due to coexisting medical problems. This includes patients who have head tremor (such as Parkinson's disease ), those who have difficulty following instructions (Dementia, Alzheimer's, and profound hearing loss) and those who have concerns about remaining still during surgery (such as chronic cough, breathing difficulties). This often means that a general anaesthetic can be avoided.
