Cataract & Retinal Surgery in Berkshire

Mr Vaughan TannerMr Vaughan Tanner is a Senior Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon to 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.

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 hospitals

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. Completion of higher surgical training at the Oxford Eye Hospital led to award of the Fellowship of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. He then completed 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

He is a Consultant Clinical Supervisor for The Oxford Deanery School of Ophthalmology responsible for post-graduate training and also leads a Fellowship training programme in advanced vitreo-retinal surgical techniques for surgeons becoming Consultants in this sub-specialty.
