Welcome to The Eye Expert website.

I am Peter Simcock a cataract surgeon and retina specialist.  I have been a Consultant Eye Surgeon for 18 years and have a wealth of experience in treating cataract, retinal and macular problems.  I have a busy and well established NHS and private practice.  I am based in state-of-the-art facilities in Exeter and pride myself in providing the most appropriate treatment for you with the highest level of clinical care.  I will take time to give a clear explanation of your condition and treatment. 

I developed this web site to provide detailed information on all the conditions I treat in an unbiased way for my patients and hope you find the format both easy to use and informative.

I live near Exeter with my wife and two young children and enjoy the outdoor life with the family in our VW campervan at weekends!

I consult and performs surgery at a brand new purpose built facility called Exeter Eye.  Please click this link for directions

I will explain with the aid of video clips the various eye problems I treat. I can help patients with cataract choose the correct lens implant including toric lenses for astigmatism and blended monovision to reduce spectacle dependance.  

Wet macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease and retinal vein occlusions can require treatments with eye injections and I can provide you with guidance for your best treatment.  You can hear me speak on macular degeneration at the "Top Doctors" seminar in Exeter by clicking here.
