Mr Ratnarajan graduated from University College London and completed his Ophthalmology training in Oxford. He completed his MD research degree at The Institute of Ophthalmology and Moorfields Eye Hospital, London.

He has completed three specialist fellowships in glaucoma and anterior segment surgery at The Oxford Eye Hospital, The Western Eye Hospital in London and the world renowned fellowship at the University of Toronto, Canada. It was in Canada that he learnt and developed many new glaucoma surgeries, some of which are not available in the UK at present. Glaucoma is a chronic condition requiring long-term treatment and follow-up. Mr Ratnarajan brings innovation in glaucoma care to the UK to help treat glaucoma patients with safer and more effective treatments.

Patients appreciate Mr. Ratnarajan’s gentle and empathetic approach. He takes the time to explain the diagnosis to his patients so they understand their condition and why they need to take their treatment.

As well as his private post at The McIndoe Centre, Mr. Ratnarajan is a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at the world famous Eye Unit in Queen Victoria Hospital.
