About Sally Ameen

Ms Sally Ameen specialises in cataract and glaucoma surgery. She is experienced in many glaucoma procedures, namely MIGS (including istent), filtration surgery and laser therapy for glaucoma like Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT).

Ms Ameen completed her ophthalmic training in the north Thames London deanery, and rotated through Moorfields Hospital as well as the Western Eye hospital.

Her passion for education continued into her consultant post, where she holds the position of college tutor where she leads more than 20 trainees. She is also the Secretary for the Ophthalmic division of the Royal Society of medicine and continues to be involved in both chairing and organising educational events.

Amongst other roles, Ms Ameen is the Quality and Safety Lead at the Western Eye hospital. The role demonstrates her commitment to ensure she is always at the forefront of best practice medicine.

Ms Ameen has presented her work at a number of meetings, published in peer reviewed journals and has written 2 book chapters. She continues to be actively involved in research both within her hospital and in larger national trials.

When it comes to patient care, she likes to have ongoing involvement in the lives of her patients as she takes them on a journey – which she credits as one of the reasons why she finds her job so rewarding.

Research highlights

Ms Ameen has written a number of publications in peer reviewed journals and was involved in recruitment and monitoring of a number of major UK trials including TAGS- treatment of advanced glaucoma study, EAGLE: effectiveness of early lens extraction for treatment of angle closure glaucoma.

She has written two book chapters; one on visual fields: a guide on understanding and interpreting visual fields in glaucoma and the other, on glaucoma suspects: a guide on diagnosis and management.

In her consultant post at The Western Eye Hospital, Sally Ameen was instrumental in setting up a new virtual clinic for glaucoma patients. The clinic enabled those with stable glaucoma, who simply need routine review, to see a specialist technician to assess their vision, eye pressure, visual field and disc images remotely. Ms Ameen would review the results of these remotely and formulate a management plan. The benefits of the virtual clinic enable patients to be seen much quicker and reduces their time waiting in clinics for an appointment. This also opens up space in the hospital clinics to see more complex patients.
