Worried about an eye cancer?

Cancers of the eye can occur on the ocular surface (squamous cell carcinoma and conjunctival melanoma) or in the eye (uveal melanoma, metastasis etc).

Sometimes it can be difficult to be sure about whether a freckle or spot at the back of the eye is a melanoma. In this situation, expert opinion from an ocular oncologist and, if appropriate, a biopsy of the ocular surface lesion is required.

Dr Chadha is one of only two Consultant ocular oncologists in Scotland and eight in the entire UK. Along with his colleague, he runs the Scottish Ocular Oncology Service.

Our eye procedures

Cataract Surgery

Cataract is a clouding of the natural lens in the eye which causes visual impairment and glare. This can be treated by a surgery which removes the cataract and replaces it with an Intraocular lens (IOL) implant. 

Blepharoplasty & Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove the excess hooding of skin on the eyelids. Dr Chadha has received specialist training in eyelid surgery in Edinburgh and Glasgow and performs eyelid surgeries routinely.

Lumps and Bumps on the eyelids

The majority of lumps and bumps on the eyelids are benign and include cysts, papillomas and freckles and can be managed with a simple and short surgical procedure

Watery Eye

A watery eye may be caused by a number of reasons and this includes eyelid problems. A careful examination usually reveals the cause and the treatment can be individually tailored to your eyes.

Rodent Ulcers and Eyelid Cancers

The most common eyelid cancer is a Basal Cell Carcinoma also known as a Rodent Ulcer. A clinical examination is often enough to diagnose this but we like to perform a small biopsy to confirm the diagnosis as it is such an important diagnosis for the patient
