Speaker's biography

Mr Nicholas Lee qualified from Guy's Hospital and trained in London. Appointed as consultant in 1997 to The Hillingdon Hospital and The Western Eye Hospital specialising in the new treatments of age related macular degeneration and diabetes.

He is Lead consultant at The Hillingdon Hospital and has developed the Specialist Macular services there. He owns his own OCT (known as K9 to most people) which he has made mobile to enable high quality retinal scans to be done easily at any hospital. This is key to understanding the Retina and is akin to MRI scans.
