Professional profile

Mr Andrew Pearson's undergraduate training took place at Cambridge University and St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, qualifying in 1989. He was awarded Membership of the Royal College of Physicians in 1993. His training in ophthalmology commenced that year, with a first post at the Prince Charles Eye Unit, Windsor.

Further training posts for each of the sub-divisions within ophthalmology led to the award of the Fellows of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists in 1996 and full specialist accreditation in 2001.

Mr Pearson has also undertaken two advanced higher specialist training programmes in oculoplastic surgery at both Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham and Moorfield's Eye Hospital, London, and is a founder member of the British Oculoplastic Surgeons Society.

In 2002 he was appointed NHS Consultant Ophthalmologist and hold posts at both the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading and the Prince Charles Eye Unit, Windsor, providing a Berkshire-wide service that includes cataract surgery, eyelid surgery, oculoplastic surgery, lacrimal surgery and general ophthalmology.
