Mr Richard Packard is a Consultant Ophthalmologist based in London, UK. He completed his senior training in ophthalmology at the prestigious Moorfields Eye Hospital and in 1979, under the guidance of Eric Arnott, he began performing minimally invasive cataract surgery. This type of surgery was extremely new to Europe at the time, and Mr Packard has since gone on to lecture on this topic in over 50 different countries around the world.
Mr Packard is also a senior Consultant Surgeon at the Prince Charles Eye unit in Windsor, and currently holds the positions of Chairman of the Association of Ophthalmologists, and Deputy Chairman of the Federation of Independent Practitioner Organisations. In addition to these roles, he previously held a board position for the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons between 1999-2007.
