Mr Roger Wong is a consultant ophthalmic & vitreoretinal surgeon based in London and Surrey. He is an authority on diabetic retinopathy, cataracts and retinal detachment, among others, and holds the posts of Honorary Lecturer and Lead Clinician for Kings College ophthalmology students at St Thomas' Hospital. Fluent in English, Japanese and Chinese, and holding multiple degrees (see education), Mr Wong is known for his care and attention to detail and also his patient-centred approach to managing each patient's eye condition.
Mr Wong has pioneered new techniques and services to treat vitreoretinal conditions which have not previously been possible, including setting up the nurse-led intravitreal injection service at Ashford & St Peter's Hospital for age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. He is currently investigating new instruments to improve the safety and efficacy of vitreoretinal procedures such as complicated cataract surgery. He is regularly invited to speak at international conferences, and is involved with the Lifeline Express Charity's work in China, providing his professional expertise to ophthalmological departments in rural China.
