Responsible, Expert Ophthalmic Care


After being referred to Mr. Mohamed for a cataract operation, it was with some trepidation that I lay on the operating table awaiting the procedure. The thought of needles and knives was somewhat daunting.

Mr. Mohammed and his team were incredible. They made me so relaxed I could easily have fallen asleep.

The operation was a total success.

A few weeks later I had the other eye done, this time I had no fear, only an expectation of the same fantastic outcome.

No words can properly convey my gratitude but from the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank Mr. Mohamed and his team for their skill and care.

“I’m very happy with the treatment I have received. [Mr Mohamed’s] caring and easy manner set you at ease from the beginning and that relaxed manner continues throughout the process” AE January 2021.

I shall be ever grateful of my experience with Mr Mohamed which started three years ago. As a result of Glaucoma in the family I had free sight tests for many years which took place at [a high street national chain of opticians]. I had no reason to doubt their competence but had to go elsewhere as I needed sports specs for my cycling which were unavailable at these opticians.
My search for cycling specs led me to Eye Opticians in Barnt Green. A routine eye test revealed high eye pressure in both eyes. Following an OCT eye scan, an NHS referral was made, however the appointment would have only been in 12 months’ time.
Eye Opticians suggested that waiting for this length of time was unacceptable and a private consultation was essential. I was referred to Mr Mohamed who after close examination advised me that Glaucoma was present in my right eye. He described in detail the results found showing damage to my retinas and explained possible outcomes. Mr Mohamed prescribed eye drops which reduced the pressure to normal levels within 3 months. I have continued to use the eye drops twice a day since then and have regular follow up examinations at four-monthly intervals.” AC November 2020.

“Having had two cataract operations I want to thank Mr Mohamed and his team for the care, kindness and treatment I received. Everyone was so friendly and professional and put me at ease with the procedures. Thank you once again.” IW. August 2020.

This is the personal website of Mr Shabbir Mohamed who is a Consultant Ophthalmologist based in Birmingham, UK.

The website provides information for patients with ophthalmic problems and their referrers.

Mr Mohamed would like to thank his patients who have helped him to learn and grow through the decades of his practice. They have been his best teachers and guides.

He would like to especially thank those patients who have given him feedback on his practice and those who have consented to present their anonymised information for the benefit of teaching others over the years.

Mr Mohamed is also grateful to his teachers and mentors, without whose expert guidance, he would not have been able to accomplish much.
