Mr Neil Modi


Mr Modi is a consultant ophthalmologist specialising in cataract surgery, glaucoma and conditions of the eyelids (oculoplastics).

Mr Modi has severed as the lead for ophthalmology at Frimley Park Hospital and has practiced as a consultant for the past decade. Mr Modi works with a team of orthoptists and nurses to offer a comprehensive service for his patients. He has performed over 10,000 procedures, including many of the more complex and high-risk cases.

He uses the latest diagnostic technology and remains up-to-date with the latest treatment modalities such as femtosecond cataract surgery, minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) and the latest lens technology for cataract surgery including extended depth of field lenses and multifocal lenses.

He has trained numerous young ophthalmologists in the art and science of this field of medicine. Mr Modi is the simulation lead for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex deanery and annually runs an introduction to cataract surgery and an advanced cataract surgery course for trainee eye doctors. He is the author of one of the key textbooks of Ophthalmology (Basic Science in Ophthalmology, published by Oxford University Press).

Mr Modi chose to be an ophthalmologist having seen the impact that cataract surgery has on the lives of his patients whilst in his fourth year at Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ medical school. He went on to carry out research whilst at St Thomas’ which he has presented at international ophthalmology meetings such as the Association for Research and Vision in Ophthalmology (ARVO). He spent time gaining a broad experience in the field and spent time at the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore and at Sankara Nethralaya in Chennai, both amongst the foremost eye hospitals in the world. Mr Modi completed his training in the Peninsula deanery, where he had the privilege of working with not only some of the most acclaimed but also some of the most kind, patient centred clinicians who have had a profound impact on how he cares for his patients.

In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his young family, out on his mountain bike or on the golf course. He enjoys gardening but has now given up any hope of keeping his garden under any sort of control.
