Mr Richard Caesar
MA MB BChir FRCOphth

I trained in medicine at Cambridge University and then Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School. I qualified in 1992 and then studied ophthalmic surgery in Oxford. I specialised in oculoplastic and lacrimal surgery with fellowship training in Oxford, and then further fellowship training in Melbourne, Australia.
I was awarded my certificate of completion of specialist training in 2001 and am on the General Medical Council Specialist Register.
I was appointed an NHS Consultant Ophthalmic and Oculoplastic Surgeon to the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in September 2003. I have clinics in Cheltenham, Gloucester and Cirencester, and operate at Cheltenham, Tetbury and the Nuffield.
I’m a fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and a founder member of the British Oculoplastic Surgeons Society.
I pride myself in taking great care to meet my patients expectations. From the first consultation to last visit I will always treat you as I would hope to be treated if I was a patient.

I have been included in the "Best for Eyes" list in the Tatler Beauty and Cosmetic Surgery Guide 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.


If you are considering any form of surgery there are essential questions that you should never be afraid to ask

What are your qualifications?
Check your consultant holds a substantive NHS consultant post. This will ensure they are fully qualified and have been selected and appointed by a group of peers.
I am a consultant ophthalmic and oculoplastic surgeon at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
My full set of qualifications are MA MB BChir FRCOphth.

How often do you perform this procedure?
Your consultant should have an established track record in the common procedures offered. For rare or new procedures look for honesty. Never be afraid to find a second opinion.
I've been a consultant for the last 18 years. I will only operate if I’m sure I can meet your expectations.

Do you do reconstructive as well as cosmetic surgery?
Only allow someone to operate on you for a cosmetic reason if they are trained to be able to reconstruct the same area.
My NHS work is mainly reconstructive, please see www.oculoplastics.info for details.

What is your complication rate?
Look for honesty. All consultants have experienced complications. How the complications are dealt with is usually more important than the exact complication.

What will you do if I have a complication?
Your consultant should offer to continue to treat you within the fixed price if there is a clear problem.
I offer this for all my patients, there is no additional surgical charge, but additional hospital fees may apply.

Who will I see pre and post operatively?
If you are not seeing your consultant there needs to be a good reason. It is reasonable in some situations for someone else to remove your stitches, and for cataract surgery with perfect results a telephone follow up prior to you seeing your own optician can be very convenient, and save you a visit.
I see all my patents at every visit, and will always see you as an emergency if you have any problems post surgery.

Do you have information I can take away?
Always useful, never decide to proceed with surgery without going away and thinking about it.
I use my websites for much of my patient information. It saves trees and ensures the information is easily updated.

Are you insured?
Essential. If the insurance companies will not deal with your consultant neither should you.
My insurance is with PMP.
