About Sally Ameen

The most common surgery that Ms Ameen performs in practice is minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS).

The procedure takes around five minutes and is done under local anesthetic. It can be done as a standalone surgery or in combination with cataract surgery. MIGS can be used in patients with open angle glaucoma who are not suitable for eye drops or no longer wish to use them.

Ms Ameen also performs the latest Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT). This uses a laser to control pressure in the eye and remove the need for medication or drops. It’s very safe and effective and both eyes can treated at the same visit.

She completed her ophthalmic training in the north Thames London deanery, and rotated through Moorfields Hospital as well as the Western Eye hospital.
Her interest in education dates back to her undergraduate career, where she took every opportunity to formally expand her teaching experience. During her training, Sally completed an MSC in clinical education and has been a faculty member on many national and international courses. This passion for education has continued into her consultant post, where she now holds the position of college tutor.

Ms Ameen finds her job rewarding as she has ongoing involvement in the lives of her patients as she takes them on a journey. She will always do everything in her power to save their sight.

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.
