Mr Mathew Raynor (Consultant Ophthalmologist)


Mathew graduated from Manchester University Medical School in 1994. He trained in Ophthalmology in Southampton and then in Manchester. He completed a fellowship in Corneal and Refractive surgery before moving to the Royal Hallamshire Hospital as the unit’s second corneal surgeon.  He works as a full-time Consultant Ophthalmologist specialising in the treatment of the anterior segment of the eye. A large part of his NHS surgical workload is corneal transplantation and along with Mr Edwards he runs the Regional Corneal Transplant Service. He is experienced in a variety of refractive procedures including LASIK, LASEK, SmILE and Refractive Lens Exchange otherwise known as clear lens replacement.

His published research relates to the safety of the various types of contact lenses that are in common use on the high street and this work has been presented locally, nationally and internationally. He is involved in both undergraduate and post-graduate teaching of Ophthalmology at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals and is a reviewer for two scientific journals. He is also a member of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons. The NHS Eye Department at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital occasionally accepts tertiary referrals from other laser companies where patients are concerned or dissatisfied with their care; Our consultants, Mr Matthew Edwards, alongside Mr Mathew Raynor will take over the management of these complex cases. We feel that their experience in the day to day management of corneal related disorders makes them the ideal choice for safe and effective refractive surgery.
