Professional statement

Mr Vaughan Tanner has over 20 years experience as a senior consultant ophthalmic surgeon to The Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading and King Edward VII Hospital, Windsor. During that time, he led the Berkshire-wide vitreo-retinal surgical service, established a sub-specialist age-related macular degeneration service, provided a micro-incision cataract service and headed a general ophthalmic team providing care for acute and routine eye conditions. He now focuses on providing a private practice, centre of excellence for both cataract and retinal surgery. 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, epiretinal membrane, macular hole and other vitreoretinal diseases. Mr Tanner’s extensive surgical experience includes the performance or supervision of over 15,000 major intraocular cataract and retinal procedures.

Mr Tanner has led the introduction of many new retinal treatments including Faricimab, Lucentis, Eylea anti-growth factor, intravitreal injections and Ozurdex steroid implants. These innovations have significantly improved vision for many patients suffering from age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion and other retinal problems.

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. Private consultations and treatments are available at the following The Princess Margaret Hospital, Windsor, Dunedin Hospital, Reading and Circle Hospital, Reading.

His undergraduate study was at St George’s Hospital Medical School, London where he was awarded Medical Research Council funding in addition to his medical degree. His completion of higher surgical training at the Oxford Eye Hospital led to the award of the Fellowship of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. He then completed three years of advanced, sub-specialist fellowships at both Moorfields Eye Hospital, London and St Thomas’ Hospital, London. During this period he gained expertise in the surgical and medical management of all retinal disorders including macular surgery. He has co-authored “Diseases of the Ocular Fundus” which was awarded first prize as “Best Authored Post Graduate Textbook” by the Royal Society of Medicine and the Royal Society of Authors. He has previously hosted both the Southern and National Annual Meetings of the British and Eire Association of Vitreo-Retinal Surgeons. He is an invited scientific reviewer for the British Journal of Ophthalmology.

Furthermore, Mr Tanner was a consultant clinical supervisor for The Oxford Deanery School of Ophthalmology responsible for post-graduate training and also led a fellowship training programme in advanced vitreo-retinal surgical techniques for surgeons becoming consultants in this sub-specialty. He has previously been appointed both lead clinician and clinical governance lead for the ophthalmology department, Royal Berkshire Hospital and has been awarded three NHS clinical excellence awards. He is currently appointed ophthalmology lead for the Medical Advisory Committee at Princess Margaret Hospital, Windsor.
