Mr Jonathan Ross
Specialist in refractive cataract surgery and laser eye surgery. Jonathan is one of the busiest surgeons in Scotland, performing nearly 2,000 eye operations every year in Glasgow and Edinburgh. Originally from Edinburgh, he trained in eye surgery in London, Liverpool and Glasgow before working as a consultant in New Zealand. He founded Laser Vision Scotland in 2010 and formed a new partnership with Sanjay Mantry in 2014, when the centre reopened in its current location. In Glasgow, Jonathan provides a very busy NHS cataract surgery service at Scotland’s national cataract centre in the Golden Jubilee Hospital. He is the only eye surgeon in Scotland – and only one of four eye surgeons in the United Kingdom – performing pioneering lens surgery with the Implantable Miniature Telescope for patients with advanced macular degeneration. An active member of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons and European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons, to date he has performed more than 10,000 eye operations.
