Mr Sameer Trikha is an internationally known Ophthalmic Surgeon based in London, United Kingdom. He is currently a substantive NHS Consultant at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, and consults privately at Optegra – Central London, in the prestigious Harley Street district. He specialises in complex glaucoma care, and cataract, as well as consulting for general Ophthalmology.
Ophthalmology is not simply a job for me – it’s my passion. I feel incredibly privileged to have trained in both Medicine and specialised in Ophthalmic Surgery at some of the best institutions in the world, and now apply the most up-to-date techniques in the care for my patients. I like to work in partnership with my patients, to provide world class quality of care, every time. I am passionate about surgical education, and have trained surgeons from Australia, Switzerland, France, India and South Africa – all of whom have gone on to obtain Consultant positions in their home countries.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my young family, as well as running, badminton and cricket.
