The company is owned and led by four consultant ophthalmologists: Rishika Chaudhary, Rupal Morjaria, Li Jiang and Ricardo De Sousa Peixoto, alongside operations director Megan da Silva.

Clinical lead Mr Peixoto said: ‘We choose to use the highest-quality monofocal cataract replacement lenses for our NHS patients, reducing the likelihood of patients needing corrective treatment in the future. 

‘This reduces costs for the NHS, allowing them to support other pressures and, most importantly, it means fewer patients going through the worry of avoidable treatment.’
