Eye care of the


Your eyes are a precious gift. Here

you will find helpful advice about how to care for them.


This site is here to help patients, carers, GPs and optometrists understand a little more about some of the most common eye conditions and the available treatments


Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you would like me to come to talk to you and your colleagues. I am also happy to arrange to lecture non medical groups around Norwich, Great Yarmouth, Beccles, Southwold, Norfolk and Suffolk.


There are times when you will need the best possible care, at a time and location that's convenient to you. I studied Medicine at Cambridge University, spent 15 years training and working in Moorfields Eye Hospital and other top London Hospitals before moving to East Anglia with my family. The experience I have allows me to provide London Specialist quality care with the convenience of clinics located to serve both Suffolk and Norfolk.


See the section on Eye care for more information and links.

Otherwise, please browse the site to find out more about me and to get in touch.

“I’ve been attending Prof Burton's clinic for more than 5 years now, receiving injections in my eyes suffering from wet age-related macular degeneration. Under his care my treatment has been superb, both sympathetic and caring. The attention to detail has been of the highest quality.”
