Professional statement

Mr Vik Sharma is extensively trained, and has gained expertise, in lens surgery, glaucoma, eyelid surgery, and retinal treatments, as well as general ophthalmology.

Mr Sharma is a glaucoma specialist who offers new non-penetrating surgical techniques and micro-tube implants, the latest micro-pulse laser treatment, and micro-incision cataract surgery with monofocal and multifocal lens implants.

He is an experienced glaucoma and cataract surgeon, using topical anaesthesia and on-axis phacoemulsification as part of his technique. At LondonOC, he is a consultant ophthalmic surgeon and also clinical director, and has introduced the use of micro-incision phacoemulsification with sub-2mm incision for cataract surgery. This technique reduces trauma to the eye, which leads to faster healing and decreased post-treatment complications.

Since 2007, he has been a holder of a substantive NHS consultant post with the Royal Free Hampstead NHS Trust, Edgware, and Barnet Hospitals, London, where he is the clinical lead in glaucoma.

Mr Sharma is developing a new modern service for patients in North London.

Mr Sharma is a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and a fully accredited consultant on the UK General Medical Council Specialist Register. As well as completing a glaucoma fellowship in London, he has also undergone further training in oculoplastics.

He has authored many ophthalmology chapters in medical texts and in peer-reviewed journals and remains an active member of the medical research field, presenting internationally and locally, discussing research findings and new techniques/treatments.
