Call me Mr Mikhail

Cumberland Infirmary


Vitreoretinal and Cataract surgeries. I deal with patients with vitreoretinal problems like:

  • retinal detachment
  • macular hole
  • macular pucker
  • vitreous haemorrhage
  • diabetic eye disease
  • trauma
  • endophthalmitis
  • complex cataract

I graduated from Alexandria Medical School in Egypt in 2003 then moved to the UK for further surgical training. I completed higher ophthalmic surgical training in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 2017 then had two vitreoretinal fellowships in Newcastle in 2017 and Liverpool in 2018. I Joined The North Cumbria Integrated Care Trust as a vitreoretinal consultant in August 2019.

Having a patient centred approach in dealing with patients with sight-threatening conditions and being able to help these patients I find is very rewarding.

Kindness and respect. I would like to think that I treat patients with kindness and respect.
