Cataract and Retina Surgery - Exeter
Peter Simcock MB ChB DO FRCP FRCS FRCOphth welcomes you to The Eye Expert website.
I am Peter Simcock a cataract surgeon and retina specialist. I have been a Consultant Eye Surgeon since 1996 and have a wealth of experience in treating cataract, retinal and macular problems. I have a busy and well established NHS and private practice. I pride myself in providing the most appropriate treatment for you with the highest level of clinical care. I will take time to give a clear explanation of your condition and treatment.
I developed this web site to provide detailed information on all the conditions I treat in an unbiased way and hope you find the format both easy to use and informative. All conditions have a video clip explanation as well as text to facilitate understanding of the condition and its treatment.
I consult and perform surgery at a brand new purpose built facility in Exeter called Admiral House as part of a group of eye consultants called Exeter Eye.
I trained at the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, Charing Cross Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital, London. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, Royal College of Surgeons (England) and Royal College of Ophthalmologists.
I chaired the Equivalence of Training Committee and have been lead trainer on the microsurgical course of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists in London.
I will explain with the aid of video clips the various eye problems I treat. Short sight, long sight and astigmatism can be corrected at the time of cataract surgery to provide excellent distance vision without glasses.
The need for reading glasses after cataract surgery can be reduced with multifocal lenses or blended monovision. Click here to view the current best options.
I provide injection treatments for macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease and retinal vein occlusions. You can hear me speak on macular degeneration at the "Top Doctors" seminar in Exeter by clicking here.
Admiral House is a new purpose built facility in Exeter where I perform consultations and cataract surgery with monofocal and premium intraocular lenses
A consultant anaesthetist is present during cataract surgery with sedation available. Capsule thickening following cataract surgery can also be treated by YAG laser here.
Intravitreal injections can be given as a "one stop" service with consultation and injection the same day.
