Mo Majid

Doctor's Profile

Mr Mo Majid is a private eye surgeon and consultant ophthalmologist in Bristol specialising in bespoke cataract surgery with standard and premium lenses (toric, multifocal and extended range of vision lenses). Mo is also an expert in vitreoretinal surgery, macular degeneration, medical retina disorders, eyelid surgery (also called blepharoplasty), general and emergency ophthalmology.

Trained in Bristol, Liverpool and Taunton, Mo is a PhD holder from the University of Bristol. He has completed advanced fellowships in surgical retina and ocular plastic surgery including medical retina with uveitis and complex cataract surgery.

Mo was one of the first ophthalmologists to offer the newest Swept Source Retinal scanning which provides amazing details of the retina. It helps in better diagnosis of retinal problems. Mo was the first eye surgeon to use the latest micro incision 27 Gauge Micro retinal surgery platform. The platform provides the shortest healing time along with minimal disruption as compared to any other system used in retinal surgery.

Diabetic retinopathy, vitreous haemorrhage, laser eye surgery, YAG laser capsulotomy, retinal laser, glaucoma, vitreomacular traction and diabetes surgery are some of the other areas of interest of this consultant ophthalmologist in Bristol. Mo also treats patients suffering from eye bags, eye floaters, lacrimal disorders, detached retina, diabetic eye disease, orbital disease, glaucoma, macular holes and failing vision.

This experienced eye consultant currently supervises 2 surgical retina fellows and 12 medical retina fellows in his department and is involved in many clinical research trials. He has participated in more than 30 international clinical research trials in his medical career. These trials have led to the introduction of new treatments in the field of medical and surgical retina along with cataract surgery.

Mo has published over 35 peer-reviewed papers and is a member of many prestigious ophthalmic bodies and institutions across the globe. Apart from serving as a consultant ophthalmologist at Bristol Eye Hospital, Mo is also an honorary consultant ophthalmologist at Great Western Hospital and Weston General Hospital.
