Professional statement

Mr Scott Robbie is a renowned consultant ophthalmologist at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospitals specialising in cornea, cataract, external diseases and refractive surgery. He has over 15 years of experience in ophthalmology with over 3000 cataract surgeries performed.

Mr Robbie trained at Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust where he completed two years of advanced corneal surgical training and a further two years as a consultant in cornea, cataract and external diseases before joining the team at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ in 2017. He obtained further experience as a visiting consultant at University of Iowa Hospitals in the United States in 2015. Mr Robbie also has a PhD in Genetics, undertaken at the world-renowned UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, where he was involved in the first gene therapy trial for an eye condition and engaged in collaborations with GlaxoSmithKline and the University of Bristol, amongst others.

As a prestigious National Institute for Health Research Clinical lecturer at Moorfields, he obtained funding to develop a translational project examining the use of gene therapy viral vectors to treat corneal neovascularisation and, to this day, he continues to work on this as a research associate at University College London. He has more than 30 peer-reviewed publications to his name. 

One of the highlights of Mr Robbie's career is that he was selected as one of the eye surgeons responsible for providing care to athletes in the Athlete’s Village at the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics. He maintains a broad research interest that encompasses novel therapeutics and intraocular lens technologies, most recently lens technology developed to improve visual outcomes in patients with macular disease undergoing cataract surgery.

His wealth of expertise and dedication to the field of ophthalmology has led him to be a key figure in the teaching and training of many junior doctors and medical students. He regularly trains other surgeons in cataract and corneal surgery in the NHS.

Excellent consultation with Mr Robbie - he was extremely professional but friendly and put me at ease and I didn't feel rushed in any way. He answered all my questions and his follow-up letter was in large font so I could read it. Excellent service.

Excellent consultation and assessment. He answered all my questions and more and was so friendly but professional, I felt completely at ease and could be totally honest about my concerns. Was also very open about my prognosis and the pros and cons of further treatment options.

My wife and I have had three cataract ops performed by Mr Robbie . We cannot speak too highly of him or the skill, attention to detail and gentle good humour which he brings to his role. Mr Robbie is an absolute pleasure to deal with. 10/10.
