Professional statement

Mr Vaughan Tanner is a senior consultant ophthalmic surgeon at The Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading and King Edward VII Hospital, Windsor. He leads the Berkshire wide Vitreo-Retinal surgical service, established a sub-specialist age-related macular degeneration service, provides a micro-incision cataract service and heads a general ophthalmic team providing care for acute and routine eye conditions.

His subspecialist interests and recent advances include the introduction of sub-2mm micro-incision cataract extraction with multifocal and toric lens implants designed to significantly reduce spectacle dependence following cataract surgery. He has also developed sutureless small-incision vitrectomy techniques for the repair of retinal detachment, macular hole and other vitreoretinal diseases.

Mr Tanner’s extensive surgical experience includes the performance or supervision of over 10,000 major intraocular cataract and retinal procedures. Mr Tanner has led on the introduction of many new retinal treatments including Lucentis and Eylea injections, Ozurdex steroid implants and Jetrea treatment. These innovations have significantly improved vision for many patients suffering from age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion and other retinal problems. Mr Tanner now carries out selective laser trabeculoplasty and YAG laser vitreolysis.

In the private sector, he has developed a comprehensive service aiming to provide the highest level of personal care using the latest surgical techniques available. His main practice covers Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and London with many national and international referrals.

Mr Tanner gave me very honest feedback on my eye surgery which makes me easier to make a decision. He was not the first eye specialist I’ve seen but the hospital’s service as well as Mr. Tanner’s and his team have given me the best experience. Highly recommended!

Waited half an hour, but this seems to be normal with consultants these day in the private sector.

Mr Tanner is a gifted surgeon and a thoroughly nice person who has performed miracles with my eyes. He is backed up by a splended team of admin and nursing staf and in particular his associate Miss Baldwin. I could not recommend him more.

Regarding payment to the Circle, it would be much better if the price of the OCT scan was included with the consultation fee, as it used to be.One payment makes the transaction smoother for the patient.
