About Pedro Muel-Gonzalez

An NHS Consultant Ophthalmologist with a special interest in refractive lens exchange and cataract surgery, Dr Muel-Gonzalez specialised in ophthalmic surgery in Spain before he moved to Dublin, where he completed advanced training in oculoplastic surgery and neurophthalmology.

He has held a substantive NHS Consultant position at Mid Cheshire Hospitals Foundation Trust since 2014. He is the Lead for the Ophthalmic Emergency Department and for Theatre Efficiency, leading a very busy cataract surgery service every week.

Within his NHS post Dr Muel-Gonzalez carries out laser treatments for glaucoma, cataract surgery, oculoplastic surgery and management of the watery eye. He has extensive experience in general ophthalmology and emergency care.

Dr Muel-Gonzalez also actively collaborates with a charity organisation, regularly travelling to the African Sahara to treat patients from refugee camps by operating on complex cataract and oculoplastic cases.
