Biography

I am an eye doctor with specialisation in eyelid plastic surgery and surgery to correct watering eye problems. I am a graduate from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. After graduation, I did my house officer (houseman) training at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. I spent another 2 years as a medical officer in order to sit for the MRCP examinations. I had a memorable work experience in general medicine (internal medicine). I was the resuscitation officer at the Coronary Care Unit, a senior house officer in oncology, and also worked in intensive therapy unit (ITU). I am extremely blessed to have worked in these medical specialities before becoming an ophthalmologist. I went to England to pursue my training in ophthalmology. My training took me to many places in England. I was in Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford, Leeds, Plymouth, Taunton, Torbay, Exeter, Southampton, Salisbury and finally back to Leeds before returning to Kuala Lumpur. I was an honorary consultant ophthalmologist at Leeds University Teaching Hospital. I lived in the UK for 19 years before deciding to return to Malaysia in 2013. At present I am based in Beacon Hospital. I enjoy aquaponics gardening and making sourdough bread when I am not at work. “‘The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.”
