Mr Srikantha – Consultant Ophthalmologist

November 13, 2020

Mr Nish Srikantha, Consultant Ophthalmologist and Glaucoma Specialist provides a wide range of investigations and treatments within his private clinic.

Clinical Practice
Despite wide-ranging interests in clinical education and research innovation, Mr Srikantha is primarily a clinical ophthalmologist with a practice that is focused on the management of a wide range of Ophthalmic conditions. He is able to offer medical, laser and surgical treatment options for these conditions and able to offer more complex surgical management for cataract and glaucoma, including both traditional techniques and new minimally invasive surgical techniques. A large additional proportion of his practice is also dedicated to the management of chronic glaucoma in a primary care setting.

Cataract Management
Cataract is common and forms a large bulk of Mr Srikantha’s practice. Although it is usually a routine occurrence, cataract surgery is an integral part of the management of patients with glaucoma who require surgery. Patients with glaucoma, especially those with secondary glaucoma’s requiring glaucoma surgery, have a high rate of cataract development in their future. Given that cataract surgery has the potential to compromise the outcome of glaucoma surgery, the co-management of surgical glaucoma and cataract is an important part of his practice.

Mr Srikantha’s clinical practice offers phacoemulsification cataract removal and intraocular lens implantation with careful discussion and explanation of all possible options in a friendly and easy to understand approach.

Glaucoma Management
Being specialty trained in Glaucoma, Mr Srikantha is able to offer the latest in pioneering Glaucoma surgery. He routinely performs trabeculectomies and Baerveldt Glaucoma Implant. He is also familiar with the techniques of the newer Paul Glaucoma Implant, a new shunt, developed in Singapore, consisting of a smaller lumen tube than conventional shunts, that is placed inside the eye.

Mr Srikantha offers Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery MIGs in his practice including iStent with or without cataract surgery and the new Preserflo Microshunt which may offer an alternative to the older Trabeculectomy surgery in the future. He was also involved in the management and recruitment of patients to a number of multi-centre trials investigating their use during his time at Moorfields, London.

Laser Surgery
Mr Srikantha has been expertly trained in the use of Laser surgery in the management of postoperative cataract Surgery and Glaucoma. He offers YAG Capsulotomy, YAG peripheral iridotomies LPI, Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty SLT and Retonopexy treatment for retinal tears.
