Mr Glenn Carp is a distinguished and extremely skilled ophthalmic surgeon, who has undergone one of the most extensive training programs of any laser eye surgeon in the UK. Born and educated in South Africa, he qualified as a doctor in 1996
in Johannesburg; he began his career in Ophthalmology as an Ophthalmic Senior House Officer, followed by a year spent
as a Research Officer in Ophthalmology at the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa.
Mr Carp is on the General Medical Council’s Specialist Register in the UK,
and is also a fellow of the College of Surgeons in Ophthalmology (South Africa). In 2000, he began his specialist registrar training at the St John Eye Hospital in Johannesburg - Africa’s largest eye hospital. He won several awards for excellence in his field including the Tetski Patterson Award for clinical research and the Elli Dahan Registrar of the Year Award, which recognised outstanding performance over his specialist training program.
On completion of his training,
Mr Carp continued as a consultant ophthalmologist at the St John Eye Hospital in Johannesburg. His areas of specialist interest included glaucoma and retinal surgery, and he also held a part time post at the Johannesburg Eye Hospital as
a private consultant. Following this tenure, Mr Carp left South Africa to develop his expertise in the United Kingdom,
through fellowship training in corneal
and refractive surgery.
Since moving to the UK, Mr Carp has practised at several leading hospitals, including the Western Eye Hospital, Maidstone General Hospital, Preston Royal Hospital, and Worcester Royal Hospital. He was selected for a prestigious one
year fellowship in Cornea and Anterior Segment Pathology and Surgery at London’s Western Eye Hospital under the guidance of Miss Melanie Corbett, and later undertook an 18-month fellowship in Laser Refractive Surgery at London Vision Clinic under the guidance of our founder, Professor Dan Reinstein.
