Miss Subash's private practice covers patients in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and neighbouring counties and offers a comprehensive ophthalmology service and sub-specialist opinion and management of medical retinal diseases.
Mr Sheth is a Moorfields trained eye surgeon, and was appointed as a consultant in 2011. He has 18 years experience in the assessment and management of eye conditions, and has performed approximately 2000 cataract surgeries.
He qualified from St Mary’s Hospital Medical School, Imperial College, London in 1997 and undertook rotations in Accident and Emergency in London and in Neurosurgery, Plastic surgery and Ophthalmology in Brisbane, Australia.
His basic surgical training in Ophthalmology was in the prestigious eye unit at St Thomas’ Hospital in London, followed by higher surgical training in Ophthalmology and Cataract Surgery at internationally recognised Moorfields Eye Hospital in London. He has fellowship training in the sub-specialty of Glaucoma again at Moorfields Eye Hospital.
He has been active in teaching and research with 34 peer-reviewed publications and 20 posters presented nationally and internationally. He was a teaching fellow at Moorfields Eye Hospital and has led teaching for GP colleagues at the Royal Society of Medicine, London and also at Wycombe Hospital and similarly been involved in teaching optometry colleagues at Moorfields, City University and in Buckinghamshire.
In 2015, having been nominated by a patient and their family, Mr Sheth was shortlisted as a finalist in Buckinghamshire County Council's Dignity and Respect Awards.
Mr Sheth offers expert cataract assessment and surgery in Buckinghamshire. He also accepts referrals from GPs and opticians for general eye conditions. He is able to see patients at BMI The Chiltern, BMI The Shelburne, Stoke Mandeville Hospital and Amersham Hospital. Consultations are unhurried and appointment times are flexible to suit your lifestyle and circumstances.
Miss Subash is a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital Foundation Trust and is the Clinical Lead for the Retinal Vascular Occlusion Service.
She fulfilled her comprehensive Ophthalmology Residency on the North Thames and Moorfields Eye Hospital rotation giving her the opportunity to spend a few years working in Europe's largest Eye Hospital and gain a vast amount of experience in all fields of Ophthalmology including complex cataract surgery. Following on from this she pursued her interest in medical retina with a fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital during which she was also the main impetus for the largest modern day clinical trial addressing diabetic retinopathy and driving vision standards. This has been recently published in a prestigious Ophthalmology journal.
She has over 20 peer-reviewed publications and has presented her work at both national and international conferences. She is actively involved in training and education and is a college tutor for trainees.
Miss Subash feels very passionately about her work and is committed to continuing professional development and working in partnership with her patients to provide them with what she feels is the best possible care.
