Expert talk on common eye conditions and their management

 

Consultant ophthalmologist Mr Masoud Teimory is giving a public talk at Western Sussex Eye Care at Southlands Hospital in Shoreham-by-Sea, on Wednesday 11 March from 6pm.

The free-to-attend event is part of a series of public events hosted by Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, featuring the trust’s clinical specialists talking about their areas of expertise.

Everyone is welcome at the event, but, places are limited. Please reserve your seats by emailing events@wsht.nhs.uk or call 01903 205111 ext.84038. Thank you.

Mr Teimory’s presentation is “An overview of common eye conditions and their management”, followed by questions from the audience.

Eye care is one of the trust’s busiest specialties, receiving more than 70,000 patient attendances a year. Common conditions include cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma.

The event takes place in the main waiting area of Western Sussex Eye Care | Southlands, a new purpose-designed ophthalmology department opened in June 2017.

Mr Teimory, who has cared for thousands of patients at Western Sussex Hospitals over the past 20 years, was the driving force behind the development on the new £7.5m department in Shoreham.

Mr Teimory said: “We are very proud to offer access to some of the best ophthalmic assessment and surgical facilities in the country, matching our other excellent facility at St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester.”

The ophthalmologist’s talk will start at 6.30pm, following a welcome from the trust’s lead governor, Lyn Camps, at 6.15pm, who will explain a little about the role of governors and trust membership.

The event is also an opportunity for members of the public in Shoreham to meet some of their publicly elected Western Sussex Hospitals trust governors and members of staff.

The “Hear from our experts” series of public talks by Western Sussex Hospitals clinical specialists take place on Wednesday evenings throughout 2020.

Confirmed dates include 13 May and 11 November in the Worthing Medical Education Centre at Worthing Hospital, and 8 July and 9 September in the Chichester medical Education Centre at St Richard’s Hospital, Chichester.
